On a serious note, this building does look pretty interesting.

Nice tower, it's thin, but impressive.

Escollera Tower structure doesn't even have the floor slabs yet, it's a crazy structure, only vertical! , and it looks really impressive, construction is going on or is it halted?

Thanks for be interested in our contry men
Despite the economic growth in Colombia, I see there are many high-rise projects in some colombian cities, but I miss some projects of that size in Bogotá, or there are projects I don't know about?

En español, que en inglés me entiendo muy mal , digo que por lo que veo en páginas como los diagramas de skyscraperpage, o en emporis.com, parece que hay muchos proyectos de rascacielos en varias ciudades colombianas, pero sin embargo no parece que haya tantos proyectos en Bogotá, casi todas las torres más altas aún son de los años 70, igual es que estoy mal informado?

No, estas en lo cierto en Bogota no se construyen actualmente edificios altos, se construye mucho pero a menor tamaño aunque hay que resaltar que se construye MUCHO, en Medellin por ejemplo es diferente se construye en alturas impresionantes para nuestro pais, en este momento Cartagena y Medellin tienen los proyectos mas altos del pais, aunque en el resto de las ciudades hay una mecanica economica muy grande tambien.

The height of Escollera Tower is amazing but looks so thiny and fragile, like a TV tower anthena. I would prefer the other projects which looks more solid. Hope this is not a quake area.
Congratulations for this prosperous city of Colombia.

Colombia has marvellous opportunities. I really hope that the economic growth continues, Colombia really deserves it. Colombia seems like such a beautiful country. Hopefully I can visit Colombia one day.
