gemomsen,

Brazilian cities are indeed fairly developed. The issue is that, when you are on the ground, they are not as clean, modern, and well thought out as Santiago (there is room for improvement though). I mean, the favellas next to the business district in SP or Rio are simply atrocious. This is not to say there aren't poor areas in Stgo. but, there is nothing close to the favellas in Brazil (any search of 'brazil and favellas' will produce some strong images).

Let's not even talk about the quality of construction. Stgo. clearly withstood an 8,2 on the Richter scale; Sao Paolo and Rio would be totally in ruins... Not sure about the details of the SP explosions but, I'm pretty sure most buildings in Stgo. would have withstood them... See, the issue is not about only the tall buildings and how they look from afar. The devil is in the details. I think that many people who have been to many countries agree that Stgo. does not have that level of 'crappy/less than great/unfinished/unsafe' feel as most Latin American cities do (including SP and Rio).

There are a ton of tall buildings in SP but they are not planned correctly. It simply doesn't look that great overall. There are some really nice areas although you are quickly reminded of the stench when you look elsewhere. It is what it is.

No, no, the cladding is extremely slow, nobody knows why. You can see that something has come since the last photos

What a nice view from up there. Yeah and the cladding is very slow...
For me it seems to take ages to complete this Tower.
May I will be in Chile later this year...

Señores habemus T/O



The last section of the north facade being rised to be installed on top of the tower, finaly reaching it's full height.

We don't have pics of it on it's place yet, but at this moment it should be there.
