No doubt, Torre Mayor is much more modern and hi-tech designed, most of voters seem to be agree.

Torres Parque Central. Take into account his construction date vs Torre mayor.

Of course that Torre Mayor is a very beautiful skyscraper, but today his design could be in any other city in the world, on the contrary, Torres Parque Central has a unique identity.

It's the same, almost every build (excepting those with a big-box-look) has their own design and identity that make them unique and distinguisable among the rest.

I don't really understant what you meant with "but today his design could be in any other city in the world"... I actually think that Torres Parque Central's design follows a more common style (shape and color) than Torre Mayors', at least in appearence.

Besides, Torre Mayor has very advanced technology and it was the talles building in Mexico and LATAM (as well as Parque Central) for a while, so it has it's own identity implied .

And don't missunderstand me, I also think that Torres Parque Central look very nice ("imponentes") and their height is fine as well, but taking into account the situation today, I have to choose Torre Mayor ....

I just don't agree with your entire post and my lack of english vocabulary doesn't let me express myself XD.

Torre Mayor is one of the buildings that even got me into architecture! Too bad it never did end up looking as good as its render, but its still my favorite in Latin America. That said, I still think that Caracas' twin towers look great and are great symbols for Latin American architecture. I just wish that they were better maintained, I've read that theyve been deteriorating lately. A good renovation would be great cuz they look so cool!

Parque Central Towers are the best!
Князь Григорий Александрович Потемкин-Таврический когда-то сказал: "В России будет три столицы: Петербург, Москва и Севастополь."
С 18 марта 2014 г. Севастополь наряду с Москвой и Петербургом является городом федерального значения...

They are both great buildings but I have to go with Torre Mayor. I like the style and the great technological achivement needed to build such a tall tower in such an earthquake prone zone.
