JUST FOR SHOW

I'm going to present the Central American (minus Panama) cities, which have nothing in comparison to Mexico, Panama and South America, but just so you see them. (Except for Guatemala City IMO, they have a good density)


Guatemala City GUATEMALA. They have a height restriction because of the airport, or else this city would have impressive tall ones.






San Salvador EL SALVADOR. Buildings are spread out, not concentrated in one place, so there isn't a defined skyline.








San Jose COSTA RICA. Just like San Salvador, their few buildings are spread out, without a defining skyline.








Tegucigalpa HONDURAS. This capital city has gone through a considerable vertical boom recently.






Managua NICARAGUA. Managua was very vertical, until it was decimated in the 1972 earthquake.

If it were based on natural environment alone, I'd say either Caracas or Bogota. But considering we're talking about built form, I'd say Panama City by a mile.

Panama City actually also has a mountainous, verdant backdrop too. It's just harder to photograph since the mountains begin in the suburbs whereas in Caracas and Bogota the CBDs are very close to the mountains. Panama's skyline is also photographed from the Casco Viejo or from the Coastline looking in so the mountains are hidden because of skyscrapers. Since Panama's skyline hugs the coast, you have to drive about half an hour to get to the mountains of the Chagres National Park.

Cerro Ancon, 3km from Avenida Balboa where the main skyscraper cluster is:

To Infinity and Beyond
Latin American cities that have built buildings over 150m/500ft in this decade (2010-14) by # built; Tallest building built's height

Panama City, Panama (22); 284m/932ft
Balneario Camboriu, Brazil (4); 159m/523ft
Mexico City, Mexico (3); 171m/561ft
Santiago, Chile (2); 300m/984ft
Monterrey, Mexico (2); 180m/591ft
Guadalajara, Mexico (1); 215m/705ft
Montevideo, Uruguay (1); 180m/591ft
Buenos Aires, Argentina (1); 172m/564ft
Cartagena, Colombia (1); 170m/558ft
Sao Paulo, Brazil (1); 158m/518ft
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1); 151m/497ft

Latin America has added 39 buildings over 150m since 2010. 22 of them, or 56%, were added in Panama City. It's expected that Balneario Camboriu and Mexico City will collectively share the majority of buildings added in the next few years.

NOTE: List is T/O inclusive
