Living "Tall" in Latin America

Latin America


Here, we will discuss the peculiarities of living in skyscrapers in Latin America, a vast region united by culture and language that has produced very unique styles of living "tall".

Some important cities in which "living tall" is popular are:
  • Panama City
  • Mexico City
  • (many cities in) Brazil
  • Buenos Aires
  • Santiago de Chile

And many others....

Let me start with a concept new to the small country of El Salvador. I will focus now on the 28 story Torre El Pedregal, which is a luxury apartment building which is part of a larger "style of living" complex that includes 3 Malls, banks, Hotels and fine dining.

Lol aside from the usual fast food joints, there are full service restaurants in the complex. Mind you I mentioned that it is three malls, very different, I only showed one.
