Very nice building, but hardly a supertower. By the way, Why can't you love Buenos Aires by it's own wonderful merits? Why must it be "The Paris of...or The Latin American Dubai."? Buenos Aires is a BEAUTIFUL & UNIQUE city. Mi Buenos Aires Querido.

Nice towers, but in some way they remind me of the Commerzbank in Frankfurt.

Buenos Aires is in no way like Dubai. Buenos Aires has more class a richer history.

Buenos Aires is nothing like Dubai. I love it the way it is, with its old and elegant architecture. By the way, the new tower looks great.. european style.. just like the city..

Let's make a fair correction, if there's a city which could be called the Latin American Dubai, that city is Panama City. Even so, Panama City is quite far behind Dubai.

While BS's tallest building may reach 180 or 190m, there are at least 3 projects in Panama City over 240m, and one of them may reach as high as 300m according to some people.

Supertower? I consider a supertower to be at least 350 m and higher.

Dubai is no Buenos Aires.

Buildings don't make a city, people do.

No, menandro, it's gonna be taller than that

@Nightsky. the project doesn't have a name yet.. by the way, if you can add the official height for the Mirabilia Towers (165m - 45 floors). And they are two SEPARATE towers.Here's the render, if someone can make a diagram




the same with Bellini Tower, that doesn't have a diagram
