"Cencosud announces complete stoppage of work megaproject Costanera Center"

Cencosud anuncia paralización total de obras de megaproyecto Costanera Center

La firma tenía previsto invertir US$600 millones en la construcción de cuatro torres y un Mall en el sector de la Portada de Vitacura.

por La Tercera.com | 28/01/2009 - 20:13

La crisis económica internacional ya comenzó a afectar directamente a las grandes empresas chilenas. El gigante minorista Cencosud -ligado al empresario Horst Paulmann, y que tiene operaciones en Chile, Argentina, Perú, Colombia y Brasil-, decidió suspender la construcción del megaproyecto Costanera Center.

En octubre pasado la compañía enfrentó los primero efectos de la recesión mundial cuando decidió congelar la última etapa del proyecto a la espera de que mejoraran las condiciones del mercado.

Esa decisión, que implicó posponer la construcción de una torre de oficinas y un hotel cinco estrellas, le había ahorrado a Cencosud US$ 200 millones, es decir un tercio del costo inicial de las obras.

Las razones de la paralización de la construcción tendrían que ver con el mal entorno económico que se espera para este año, con menor crecimiento y un alza en el desempleo y el impacto que esto tendrá en las compañías del retail, sumado a la necesidad de contar con las obras de mitigación vial exigidas por la autoridad para solucionar la congestión en el sector de la Portada de Vitacura, donde además se levantan otros proyecto inmobiliarios de envergadura.

En diciembre cerca de 350 trabajadores fueron despedidos y la situación se repitió en enero cuando Salfa Construcción, la empresa contratista que ejecuta las obras, desvinculó a otros 400 obreros que estaban en las faenas.

El proyecto Costanera Center incluía la construcción de un mall y cuatro edificios, la Gran Torre Costanera -la más alta del Hemisferio Sur con 300 metros de altura- y otras más pequeña de oficinas.

How unlike! Cencosud also stopped "Portal Osorno Shopping Center" in Chile and a store "Paris" in Buenos Aires. I hope this crisis ended soon!

Damn. Considering the fact this project was already in an advanced stage, this is quite a shock.

yes, it's a shock for us. Costanera Center was our symbol for the 200 years of Chile. Now, how long have we wait for it?

The Jakarta Tower never got started although it's been talked about for over a decade.
On the other hand, Costanera was not only out of the ground but rising strongly before construction came to an abrupt halt.

That pic is from another tower.
Shows a tower of 405m high, or I'm wrong?
