Wow I cant beleive this was in others mind.. I was thinking in some project like this.. I feel like stolen, but... anyways it resambles perfectly what i intended to design. I beleive its perfectly structured... with lots of "hidden archs"... this building will work almost with pure compression, just some local stretches, this will make this building less expensive. Damn! I feel so bad looking at this design but at the same time so proud of it.

I'd love to see it all built.
Damn!

ps. This is simply "The" structure

Well you already saw Santa Fe, so now I will show another CBD of Mexico City.
This is Paseo de la Reforma one of the most beautiful avenues of the world. In this Avenue is located the Mexico Stock Exchange, banks like Banamex, HSBC, IXE, American Express, many airlines headquarters, lots of monuments, and of course the great Torre Mayor.

This is the Column of the Independence, best known as the Angel of Independence.


First you can see the Diana Fountain. At the back Hotel Marquis Reforma.


Those columns at the front are the Monument of Niños Hereos at Bosque de Chapultec. At the back Torre Mayor.


A view of the avenue.


This is the aerial view of Reforma.


The Avenue full of gardens an flowers from one side to another.



From Torre Mayor's helipod.


Some of the monuments.
Diana Fountain.


Angel of Independence


Monument to Cristobal Colon


Monument to Cuauhtemoc


Monument of el Caballito


Wait for you opinions. Later I will show the most important buildings of Paseo de la Reforma.

I think that Santa Fe is amazing and I have been watching it develop over the past few years on SSC. But, my only problem with it is the lack of hotels in the area. As far as I could find, there is only one medium size hotel in the Santa Fe area. What I like about the Reforma/Insurgentes/Chapultepec Park area is the abundance of amazing hotels. There are more under construction all the time, and they are also world class hotels.

Santa Fe is a nice place to work and live, but the central part of the city is my favorite area for now.

I think that SF could fill at least a thousand hotel rooms, at least, during the week. Friday and Saturday night prices will be much lower.

Those are beautiful pictures, Mexico City is very beautiful. Thanks for sharing ROYU. It is very weird, when I first saw the Santa Fe pics, I too thought of La Defense, just because of that "tumble dryer" building recalling the Arch. I guess it also has that business-district "feel". Hopefully one day it will be home to as much industry as La Defense. Oh, and about those tract home developments. Mexico is just coming into it's own in regards to economic independence and prosperity. If you follow the development of a lot of countries, many of them bolstered their housing stocks as their economy matured through mass development. Look at the tract-home suburbs in the US or even the residential blocks in parts of Europe. It'll eventually come into it's own and develop more unique buildings. Those tract homes are probably a pretty good step-up for a lot of people in the country, so I think they're a positive. The reason they're built in such a grid with identical facades + colors is for economic reasons probably. Anyway, some of those unique homes there were pictures of were pretty architecturally daring and beautiful, I especially like the step-pyramid-like apartment building. Thanks ROYU!

Very nice stuff! I really like the HSBC building a lot. It's got a beautiful curve to it.

Wooow Santa Fe and Paseo de la Reforma are awesome... I love Torre Mayor and Panorama SF. I want to see City Santa Fe complete soon, well, at least the 1st phase...

Royu you should post pics of Polanco skyline as seen from Chapultepec Park, and another one of the WTC.

Anyway, thanks!
