That's the 102-meter-tall Estela de Luz, a very controversial monument, built to commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of the Meixcan Independence, but completed over a year later of the actual day (15.09.2010). In addition to that, the final cost ended up "being" seven times more expensive as initially planned, so, you may imagine what most Mexicans think about it.

Update from Sunday by Martín Martínez.

Now the tower has grown one more three-floored block. It's growing one block every three weeks more or less...

Interesting 'earthquake architecture', I like it!
If only the officials in Christchurch were so forward thinking, rather than making a 7 floor limit because 'people are scared of tall buildings'

Thanks for your comment... other than just allowing skyscrapers, I think Mexico City authorities have a lot to learn from Christchurch's...

Anyway... one more update by Martin H Unzon;



Getting closer to top out..14 out of 16 Three-floored blocks is being installed now:
