This tower will look so amazing with the rest of the Skyline. I can't wait to see the Panama's city skyline in five more years

The Miami of Latin America?

Panama City already has a very impressive skyline with soaring residential towers and palm trees, with a warm and humid year-round climate. That is why Panama City, in my mind, resembles Miami.

Ice Tower and other nearby ambitious projects, however, will elevate Panama City to the status of a skyscraper paradise, a distinction Miami will likely not acquire anytime soon. Ice Tower is a project worthy of global attention--congratulation to Panama (and anyone lucky enough to live on the 104th floor of Ice tower when it's complete).

Panama's been a skyscraper paradise for a while.

Just check out this pic from 3 or 4 decades ago:

The picture don't have 30 or 40 years... In the image you can see the BBVA building, it's construction was during the 80's... it means that the picture could have 20 years.

For 20 years is a big change.

Word at SkyScraper Page is that this project is cancelled for a smaller hotel development.



"Ice Towers NO SE CONSTRUIRA
Señores hoy por la mañana que llego a la oficina nos informa la promotora del proyecto F&F PropiertiesIce Tower que no se construirá.

Se dice que van a costruir un hotel y que las dimenciones seran mas pequeñas. Esta informacion puede variar pero la promotora por el momento tiene las ventas y todo los referente a dicho proyecto esta Detenido.
Esperomos cual sera el resultado de esto."

Not another pessimist post, hope it ain't so. The Panama authorities must have thier heads stuck up thier asses if they cancel thier supertall projects, first the Palacio and now the Ice tower, hope it isn't so, would be such two dimensional thinking and sheer stupidity to cancel this when pilings/foundations are underway.

Well, no news anywhere so it has not been cancelled unless the developers state so due to financial reasons.
