More from Torre Bancomer.

According to Mowgly from SSC the "cab" for the new crane has arrived. We can also that workers have now started to continue the frame of the building ones again. Both Torre Reforma and Torre bancomer seem be really on a race

Here are some pictures. All credits to Mowgly from SSC Mexico.

A picture by ominorg today. He points out that there's a structure in the mottom middle of the picture that will probably be the ones to support the side columns on each edge of the building.

Any tips as to where I can get floor plans, elevations and facades of this building?
Did it come out in any magazine or something?

Thx in advance!

Elevations can be viewed at:

Facade here:

General facts here:

And these are probably the closest thing to a public floor plan:

It's hard to find things like that for this tower. If you don't feel this is good enough, you can always try asking that in the BBVA Tower thread in SSC Mexico. There you can find more people who have a better understanding about this tower. Here's the link for that thrad:
