Used to live in Mexico City a long time ago, so I was fascinated by all the developments shown on this thread. Seems like after decades of almost no skyscraper construction, everything changed in the last 15 years. What happened? Also, is there any chance the new Glorieta Tower and other new nearby Reforma towers will help re-vitalize the fallen Pink Zone? A pity such nice walkways and sculptures are lined by such drab businesses, and all the high end stores, clubs and restaurants have gone. The new Polanco is nice and impressive (American sleek), but it does not have the excitement and charm of the old Pink Zone (European panache and sophistication). Lastly, they have been talking about a new airport for 40 years. Any hope at all this time it will actually happen? Anyway, I think Mexico City may not have the tallest skyscrapers, but when it does build them, they are often prettier and more interesting than those found in taller cities.

Well i was in Mexico city just last year and I can tell you the zona rosa is definetely getting much closer to what it was before even though of course it is still not out of the woods.New restaurants are popping around everywhere nightclubs are reopening and the high end shopping is definitely back, I walked past Mango,Aldo Conti, Starbucks, Converse etc etc. The whole area around reforma is also getting a huge cleanup operation from what ive seen and land value is skyrocketing around the area. Thanks god, Mexico city is also getting much safer it's crime rate is lower than cities like Detroit,Chicago,Baltimore,Atlanta or Miami. Even though the country as a whole is plagued by problems Mexico City has been able to get much better the last 10 years now i feel safe walking the streets contrary to 15 years ago. Also Mexico City is going through a beautiful skyscraper boom.Finally regarding the airport the project is advancing and expected completion is around 2019 i'm not sure how far it's gone but the project is pretty cool if you ask me. It's gonna be the biggest airport in latin america after its first phase in 2019 with 50 million passengers and could by its final phase reach 120 million passengers and the building will be terribly ecological it will be the first airport to earn a Leed certification for sustainability. Plus the design is Norman Foster. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwsJnNd__1I
Soooo i hope this helped

Zona Rosa.

I agree with your kind current report about things getting better around Zona Rosa, and I do feel safe traveling around town, more so than in Chicago, I do hope that Zona Rosa gets at least cleaned up, a paint job , new street lights, and such.

Exactly that is definitely what the Zona needs as I think the broken window theory is definitely correct ( you see what happened in New York when they started cleaning up). Also: Pretty sure torre Reforma just reached final height

Koi will be the laaaast 200-299m skyscraper as Mexico's Tallest before the series of supertalls

I have heard that Torre Mitikah has run into financial trouble. Originally saw it was supposed to be finished by 2015, and yesterday I heard news that they are changing the plans. What is it's actual status?
