This week started the construction of Torrena formally, which will be the greatest tower of telecommunications and entertainment of Latin America and that will have a cost of around 50 million dollars. The first stage of works contemplates the demolition of the buildings, the excavation, the foundations and the central column. On this phase of Torrena, located in the crossings of the Avenues Mariano Otero and the Lopez Mateos (Guadalajara, Mexico), will be spend around 5 million dollars.

"The demolition and excavation is going to last approximately between 60 and 80 days, once we finish immediately we followed with the laying of foundations of the cellars and the pole", it explained Martín Cuburu, director of Marketing research and Commercialization.

In agreement with Martín Cuburu, the anchorage of the first stage will conclude in October of this year. Later, it clarified Cuburu, the following stages will be made with a capitalization and the sale of the commercial packages.

"The project is going to have three stages of anchorage, first is going away to make an investment through the founding group, soon it will invite a group of investors so that they form part of the project and later the commercial companies with which will enter it is the purchase of spaces and promotional exclusivities".

The promotors of the Torrena project contemplate a period of 24 months for their construction. The director of Marketing research and Commercialization assured that already the sale of a street of municipal property is negotiating with the City council of Zapopan that surrounds the area where the tower will be constructed. Also, he affirmed that already counts with the permissions of the Secretariat of Communications and Transports. The tower, that will have a height of 336 meters and 70 floors, would be tenth higher of the world between the buildings of television and radio with area of restaurants and platform of observation.

One clarification, this is not one of the "surrounding" buildings of the area where the tower will be built: The tower will be located exactly where that building is at right now.
