I was wondering how you build a zig-zag tower. In Santo Domingo there are another couple of zig-zag towers being built (30 and 25 stories).

Well, the structure itself is composed of steel--unlike other buildings which are build using concrete. The steel structure is more relaiable inthis case, since it takes much less time to build, steel will support tension and compression better under situations such as lagoon plaze structure.

I don't think the structure is finished... I counted about 24 floors there. Which means they still have ten more to go.
