Once the tower has reached its final height, they're working on the building's exterior mostly.

On some of the pictures the tower seems to stand in the middle of nowhere. Is it in a commercial park outside the city?

The Tower is in the middle of a relatively new business and residential district (it was started 16 years ago or so, but due to an economic crisis happened that year its development slowed down for a while) known as "Valle Oriente" which belongs to the city of San Pedro Garza García (a.k.a. simply "San Pedro").

So as to have a better idea, I should mention that what most people know as "Monterrey" is really a continuum of 10 cities that make up a Metropolitan area of more than 4 million inhabitants now. Monterrey by itself only has 1 million. San Pedro is home to some of the country's most important companies, and one of the most weatlhiest cities in Latin America. In this context, the authorities envisaged in the 90's a new development to include residential, commercial and financial areas in a planned and orderly way, which would rival with another development being carried out in Mexico City.

Due to the economic crisis in the 90's, this development did not occur as fast as planned, but in the last 5 years or so, the vertical development has taken place faster than ever.

This image was originally posted by Polkator. I modified it and added these blue and red circles. The blue circle corresponds to "Valle Oriente" in San Pedro. The red one corresponds to Monterrey's downtown. The hill in the middle marks the division between both cities. You can see than Monterrey has not too many highrises. This is expected to change in the midterm. And you also can see than Valle Oriente is undergoing a deep change with several highrises under construction. There are also a number of planned or in early construction stages now.




Below, some more pics also taken and posted by Polkator:

@RegioManio: Thanks for the details. It is as I suspected, the surrounding area needs also some development.

I like the design of the tower and of the base too.

Yeah, @miau the area is under development and I expect in the next 5-10 years it will be unrecongizable in the good sense of the word

For now, there is a new update originally posted by Polkator, from the respective Mexican thread:

Those dark tones of the CW makes it look so classy and elegant!

Such a beautiful tower overall!
