Well, it's been awhile for news on this one for sure. Hope this "proyect" isn't cancelled like a few others that disappeared into thin air, such as Ice Tower. BTW--does anyone know if Planetarium Towers are still in the pipeline? That was a cool looking residential proposal of about 82 stories.

Don´t worry the project "Los Faros de Panamá" is going well as expected, as you can see in the pics, and about planetarium, promoters are still merchandising the building, a model appartment was build on the site to receive future buyiers (view the interiors. etc), it seems they are taking all the time so that they don´t suffer the same fate as the Ice Tower did.

A few others??

You mean 3 out of 150? I wouldn't call that a few others.

Please go and check the Panamanian forum and you will see several construction updates.

At Planetarium Towers they are building the salesoffice and model appartment which will be a part of the tower's base.

Cheers

It is actually more than 300 buildings under construction in Panama right now. 3 cancelled, that will be 1% not bad!

The central tower without the spire is 315 mts, for me still tall enough.

Just curious...where does all the demand for these apartments in Panama come from? The entire country has a population of just slightly over 3 million and with an average GDP of $8000 per year its hardly Dubai moneywise.

Tourists for starters... Property taxes in Panama is low -- properties are sold in US dollar - which means with the weak US dollar - it's a prime time to buy properties in Panama and build...

BUILDING PROGRESS

Second phase of excavation:
Rock blasting has begun in the areas where the main footing of the three towers will later be built.
To date, 74,000m3 of clay, 21,000m3 of weathered rock and 5,000m3 of bedrock have been excavated, which represents 67% of the total excavation work due to be carried out in the second phase.
The expected finish date for the second phase of excavation is the end of November 2007.

Foundations, (conventional) perimeter walls, underground networks and waterproofing works:

The next tasks to be carried out include the laying of the foundations, the building of the conventional perimeter walls of the podium building, the laying of underground networks and the waterproofing works.
It is estimated that approximately 70,000m3 of cement will be needed to complete this phase.The contract for this job has been awarded to the company ICA.

Exactly, that´s one of the main reasons the demand is so high right now, also lots of Rich Venezuelans are coming to the country running from Chávez government and are buying a great amount of this properties, many South Americans, also Europeans and Canadians are buying, so this is a phenomenom without precedents in Panama, that´s going to be very positive at a long term for the nations economy. actually is showing up with more than 9% economy growth this year, and is expected above 10% in the coming years.
