Torre Bicentenario in Mexico City.
(300 mts)

It's a shame this tower wasn't built. It had a great design and a formidable location.

80 years ago, the Metropolitan Life North Building would have taken the WTB title from the ESB but the depression caused it to top out at just the 30th floor.

LOPEZ CENTRE (320M) Philippines



The Lopez Tower design will rise anyway, just not in the Philippines. It will be in New York City, the building we know as the Freedom Tower.
