They are very nice,, but looking closly at those renders and the numbers of the floor you say they will have dont match. the montecattini towers seems to only have around 23 floors. unless there is one set of windows per 2 floors.

that is beacause those are the old renders now the montecatini towers are going to have the same model but are going to be taller. before the company change the high of the buildings the taller one was going to have 25 floors but they changed to 45 the taller one beacuse in the start of these year the cityhall of santo domingo change the skyline limit from 30 floors to 45 floors and for that proyects like the mundo mall and montecatini change their high, now the santo domingo skyline will be the best one in tha caribbean

yes we have cities that are poors but we are growing up a lot in fact in 2005 we were the country with the hightest economic crecimient in america ahead of canada and usa that are the richest in america. that crecimient is show because the actual president is one of the best that have ever been trough the country the foreings inversions are now very high and just in tourism area it will invest more than 10,000 billions in this year the biggest tourism inversion in all the caribbean and central america. a little bit more of the tourism in the dominican is that in 2005 we were with mexico and brazil the mos visited countries in latin america.
