is a metal frame that rises with the tower and facilitates the construction of the floors covered by it.

Does anyone notice how Chile is the only country in South America that has all of its **** in order? That's why it's building such tall skyscrapers, because people are actually running the country properly.

There are too much things you must know about the country situations in South America, countries like Brazil and Argentina have too much industries and try to keep local developments (nuclear, satellites, chemical, oil, heavy industries) and no to be so dependant from foreign countrys, actually thats is not happening with Chile, which have free trade agreements with USA, China, Mexico... thats means that your country will be filled of foreign industries and technology, and that is not the mentality of the rest of SA countrys. We must respect his mentality and still working together.

I have been in Santiago and its wonderfull to see a city more like USA than SA (not only about skyline), and this tower is beautiful, i want to see more in SA, in Chile or Brazil have more chances

you`re right, we must respect all mentalities but I don´t get your point.. be an ordered country (politically and economically) has nothing to do with the nationality of the investments that the country promotes.. maybe you're traying to say that big buildings comes with foreign investments, but you should know that Costanera Center is a 100% chilean project in which each nail is bought with chilean money (from Cencosud, a huge chilean retail company).. so..

saludos.

Yes, after all depends on low corruption and order, and you maintain it perfectly and its gives his results. However, and also, it's not casuality that countrys with strong and free relationship with the north shows this type of image (like Panamá, and maybe Peru in the future?). General foreign inversions are inyected based in this relationship, it's about statics.
But repeat, about corruption and order most of SA must learn your example.

There are more pics about the building progress?

That's true, and we chileans wouldn't mind if a foreigner built an even taller skyscraper in here , that's key when it comes to Chile's success, treating all investment equally, we don't care if its chilean or foreign as long as it brings value to the country.

This might be one of the core reasons why it works in Chile.

While in most southamerican countries, foreign investments are seen as a threat, which is kind of a sign of envy. In Chile they are seen as a chance.

But also for co-nationals and internal investments:

In Argentina, in many cases if somebody is having success, building a very big successfull company etc... this is seen badly. It will be tried to obstacle this, with exorbitant high "special taxes", "export tolls", etc...

In Chile, if somebody is having success, most people rather have a backslapping attitude towards them. Even if it might be improbable to imitate success, it keep peoples positive attitude alive to reach something.

Though I admit that both attitudes might have their positive points and also bottlenecks.

Argentinians are way more autocritical, which helps improve them in many negative points. But my perception is, that their selfpunishing attitude is too strong to really come out of lethargy ("everythings bad, politics, will stay bad forever")

sorry the OT
nobody wants to come out of the lethargy because nobody wants to come back to "1peso=1dollar" past, who destroy the local industry and make scientist flight to Europe (industries who exists before the neo-liberalism modern times, like airplanes, trains, jetfighters, own cars, heavy industries, etc)... Southern Cone is going ahead on LA not by casuality, so we both are doing well, one more slowly than others, but well :P
about the companys here, you are correct, it's happened to me, but I hope it's change during the next times, there are signals.

about the tower, I didn't know Pelli was the architect, it's good to see his towers, are sober (it's the word?) but very modern, having a little diferent touch that make wonderfull, in this case that bevels and the top look great
