I don't understand why someone thought that building that tower in Lomas would be a nice thing.

Skyline with a visual impact on the scale of Chicago or NYC will be really hard to archive.

Many of the worlds best skylines are like that because there are physical barriers + better urban planning that confine the buildings in certain areas.

NYC with Manhattan island
Hong Kong, tight space
Chicago, Toronto, Dubai, waterfront or lakefront
Vancouver, San Francisco, Boston, Sydney have a tight peninsula with downtown core.

In Mexico City, is following the pattern of places like Sao Paolo, Beijing or Los Angeles with spread out development without a single unified CBD.

I believe that having two or three building clusters for business, offices and such is better than a single clustler like NYC or Chgo, People have diversity of sites to visit. Chicago is too Blah in my view, once you leave the area there's nothing to see.

Then just one question: someone knows how many towers does the "Be Grand" project has built until today? I'm very impressed because they keep building new towers in a lot of different places of the city.

Maybe they'll go out of Mexico City at some point, I don't know if they already did.

Mexico City designates Polanco, Reforma and Centro as different clusters but in New York these areas would be considered just one cluster. Midtown Manhattan is bigger than reforma, polanco and centro combined. New York has other areas outside Manhattan that are growing into business/commercial hubs. Hoboken, Jersey City (New Port, Journal Square), White Plains, Downtown Brooklyn, Flushing Queens, LIC Queens, and Forest Hills. I could also add Newark but right now it still needs more development to become much more attractive, but it's getting there no doubt.

As for Chicago, it's single cluster is quite amazing, but its magic is in its low rise neighborhoods to the north that are equally great. Not everything must be a high rise cluster. Mexico's centro historico is not full of highrises but it's without a doubt the best urban experience you can find in DF, better than Polanco, Santa Fe, Reforma, Insurgents. etc.

ps. Chicago also has the Evanston cluster to the north.

New York's "single [business] cluster" is about 6 or 7 miles long.
And then there's Newark and downtown Brooklyn.

Why is it called the Flatiron Building? I can't see the resemblance. Just because they're both on corners?

It's called Punta Reforma, but we call it Flaitron Building because without the glass looks similar.
