Almost everything else is under 100m.

Put all that on slithers of land in between treeless tall mountains and you get what I consider to be the quintessential Mexican urban landscape.
While I mostly agree, there are actually several art decò buildings in Mexico City that range between 10 to ~30 floors. And there's also the 40~ story Latin American Tower from the mid 40s (even though not decò). They're the exception though.
