if this is going to have 70 floors i imagine the space on most of the floors will be tiny. too small for offices i'd say? so what will occupy the floors? surely not apartments!?!

Awesome concept! I wonder how wide the office tower part of the building will be? Won't it be very narrow for offices?

Another problem will be elevators. With such a narrow diameter for commercial offices, there will be little room for more than a few elevators to serve seventy floors of office workers. In addition, I'm sure that the observation areas of the tower will have their own elevators that go directly from the base to the top. These will take away more office space on each floor. It's difficult for me to see how this tower will have 70 floors of usable commercial office space.

i echo everything you say. i'm not critical of this tower (i look forward to it's construction) but i too fail to see how it will have 70 floors of workable space?! it's too narrow for offices!!

i think there could be 3 or 4 elevators, 2 for each pourpose... and it is a reduced space for offices, but, it's like a very slim building, where i think u can fit 2 offices per floor... imo.

the tallest structure between Chicago and Hong Kong? You mean east or west of Chicago? If you mean west, isnt Taipei 101 taller? If you mean east of Chicago, arent there some pretty tall communication towers in Europe (Berlin for example) and also some huge towers being erected in Dubai?

A new tallest for Mexico, i supose. Is a great project, i dont think theyll complete it in just a year and a half, but lets see. Where is it placed? Over a hill or in the plain?
