I hope this gets restarted, it'd be wonderful to see some 1,000 footers in the American hemisphere outside the US.

But I googled to find some news on this one and it seems like a longshot. Luxury condo sales in Panama are like those in Miami, in complete freefall.

Jumeirah to Manage City Hotel in Panama




Dubai and Madrid, November 25, 2009 - Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, has been appointed by Grupo Mall, developer of residential and mixed-use projects throughout Spain and Mexico, to manage a luxury hotel in Panama City.

The management agreement was signed by Mr Julio Noval-García, President of Grupo Mall and Mr Gerald Lawless, Executive Chairman of Jumeirah Group at a private signing ceremony held in Burj Al Arab, Dubai.

Designed by architectural firm Chapman Taylor and Humberto Echeverria and Associates, Los Faros de Panama complex will ultimately consist of three towers. The central tower will be 361 metres tall and 85 floors (Phase 1), making it one of the tallest towers in Latin America. The two lateral towers (Phase 2) will reach 266 metres in height with 75 floors.

In addition to luxury residences and Class A office space, the main tower will include Jumeirah Los Faros de Panama, comprising 400 luxurious hotel rooms and suites, Jumeirah’s signature Talise spa, fitness and leisure amenities, and 3,000 m2 of conference and meeting facilities. Hotel guests, residents and visitors to the tower will also have access to exclusive restaurants, lounges and retail outlets.

Los Faros de Panama is located in the central district of San Francisco, adjacent to the emerging and dynamic neighbourhoods of Punta Pacifica, Punta Paitilla, Marbella and Avenida Balboa. The complex is in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean and faces Panama’s upscale shopping centre, Multiplaza Mall; it is also adjacent to the Hospital Punta Pacifica, affiliated with the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System. Tocumen International Airport is located 17 kilometres away, with daily flights to major cities in North and South America.

Everytime someone says that I shudder...(even before the current little 80 billion problem). I would not be proud if my city was compared to Dubai (Abu Dhabi, perhaps, Singapore even.)

I'd rather just be 'Panama'.

Rich American seniors need a cheaper, less crowded alternative to Fort Myers, FL and Sun City, AZ. They build the demand, and so the buildings are constructed

Somebody told me that construction was supposed to start on 4/15/10. It has been a week since that date. Has construction started again? Could someone get a picture of the site?

Any new picures of the site? Rumor was that it restarted construction in April. So instead of somebody just bitching about me bumping a thread, can we get some news, or even better, a picture. Thanks.
