The latin american Dubai? I don't think so. If you want to compare some latin american city to Dubai, this one must be Panama City, which is far from Dubai though.

A better comparision:

Dubai = World Skyscraper boom
Panama City = latin america Skyscraper boom.

Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Guadalajara are the three ones booming cities in Latin America behind Panama.

Great design for these towers, but that area seems like it will have too many sets of twins. Twins are great, but four set of twins next to each other starts to get a little redundant.

You were talking about the "latin american Dubai", so Panama was mentioned to be fair about the adjective, Which has the best skyline in Latin America by far. By the way, Buenos Aires is a beautiful city with a very dense skyline and many interesting projects and u/c's but it doesn't compare to Panama City.
