Does anybody have actual pics of Gran Torre Costanera and the mall around it?
Did they continue work at the shopping mall in the last year?

A magnitude 8.8 earthquake occurred offshore 115 km north of Concepcion, Chile, at 3:34 AM local time; Santiago reported to have felt very strong shaking... 122 reported dead nationwide so far...

Most chilean forumers are okay.


As for Costanera Center one of its cranes fell but there's no major damage.

Is Santiago really damaged or did escape the worst? I'm really worried about this quake's damage. It was 500 times stronger than the one in Haiti!

Only few old buildings and the Santiago airport's terminal were damaged and two highway bridges collapsed, casualties in whole Chile are around 147.

I was worried about this project when I heard of the quake. Buildings under construction can be more vulnerable. I hope they will be alright and obviously, at this height a tuned mass damper has to be part of the design.

I suspect that this will go on hold for a few weeks as inspectors check things out. Similar thing happened to Taipei 101 after an earthquake in 2002.

Probably yes, because the seismic activity will last at least couple weeks, months. Until the seismic activity stops completely, any consrtuction work is suspended

right....but Chile has enough experience to face the disaster like this, so although this disaster stronger than in Haiti's, but the victims are not as much as when the disaster occurred in Haiti

That estimate has risen to over 1,000 in the last few days if I'm not mistaken.

The problem with Haiti is that their houses were very weak and were not ready for something like that, in Chile construction is better
