I dont think it will never be the tallest because of "Los Faros de Panamá" which is U/C already and has a total height of 346m located in Panama City, Panama, but still is a great project, congratulations to Mexico and Guadalajara for such a great Tower it will have.

A skyscraper is actually a man made structure that is so tall it takes on the characteristics of "scraping the sky".

There is NOTHING in the definition of "skyscraper" that means the tower must have floors. This is the purest NONSENSE that has been plaguing skyscraper forums for a long time.

There are buildings and towers and BOTH are skyscrapers if they are very tall. Nothing man made actually scrapes the sky.

A 35 floor building in Toronto is a skyscraper but the CN Tower just a half a block away is not. What absolute RUBBISH.

This tower is a skyscraper, just stand underneath it when it is built and look up and then tell me otherwise.

Very nice tower! But... Why is the antenna so tall? Is the city very flat? That's not the idea I have of Mexico...
Also, are there earthquakes in Guadalajara? If so, is the tower protected in any way?
Congratulations, I hope it starts a HEALTHY competition among Latin American cities for the highest building!

I think earthquakes are rare in Guadalajara.
But in any case it shuld have earthquake resistance.
And whit Infinity Towers and Puerta Guadalajara it shuld have quite a decent skyline by 2010 or 2012.

Cheers.

Must have changed the meaning then. The original word meant what I posted above. If you are looking at CTBUH for a definition, then they run their stupid meanings. Your answer might satisfy BUTCH but that is not the original meaning of the word. Still rubbish.

Thank you Senor. Some sanity remains on this site.

Anyway, this is a magnificent structure. Congratulations Mexico for such a beautiful and exciting design.
