Hi people

It's been a while that I haven't posted pictures here. Today I bring some views taken from several angles that shows the notorious height of this construction and its impact all over its sorroundings. There's no more to say about it, because it is already said, we are just waiting to know finally its real height confirmed by its architects or builders.

Hola gente.

Hacía tiempo que no subía fotos a este hilo. Hoy traigo unas vistas desde distintos ángulos que destacan la altura de esta torre y su impacto en el entorno. No hay más que agregar, ya está prácticamente todo dicho y esperemos tener la certeza prontamente de la altura definitiva.


Saludos a todos.

Nice addition to the CBD.
Is Santiago always covered by smog?

It is not the CBD. The place where is located this tower is between 2 districts of east Santiago called Las Condes and Providencia, that contains almost all new projects of office buildings, it is a relatively new area under a dynamic development. The Santiago's CBD is located 7 kms to the center of the city, and it keeps being as an important point for the city, but is slowly losing its power to attract new projects.

The smog increases to the winter season, because of the "greenhouse effect" generated by climatic and land conditions, you know Santiago is surrounded by hills and mountains, so the natural ventilation in winter decreases in a dramatic way, then it appears this shit. On spring and Summer, ventilation goes better and smog is low.

Also because of the decreasing temperatures in the cold seasons. Low temperatures and thus, higher pressure over the Santiago valley, don´t allow for the smog to climb to higher altitudes like in the hotter seasons. BUT, if we get rain is whole different picture. Stay tuned for some amazing pictures of the completed building after rain, with the Andes Mountains cover in snow at the background. And clean air! Those pictures will surely come.

We don't know exactly, but the estimations are between the 203 and 205 meters high.
