This is so unbelievably thin, this may only have a unit or two per floor, making it so exclusive.

Estimado amigo aleko

Estimado amigo aleko, este foro lo llevaba hace rato con mucha satisfaccion y orgullo, mostrando la cara amable de Cartagena y Colombia, pero no por eso dejare de mostrar la realidad de este y otros proyectos en Cartagena, por otra parte es bueno tambien obtener opiniones de foristas del exterior y no solo de Colombia, ademas en otros foros diferentes a este ya se ha mostrado la noticia por otros foristas y no presisamente cartageneros

Very small floor space.
Steel core is very dangerous, it should be concrete core for elevators and staircases.
Looks like very little lateral support for wind.
I for one, will not live in it.

I would be scared to be near this, it appears that it is so skinny that it will wobble in the wind. This is so thin that it should be not concrete core, but all concrete, like Trump World Tower in NY

I hope they use better materials when they rebuild it. I think it would be much, much more stable with concrete. I guess the good news is that this happened now during construction, and not after people had already moved in. It could have been a real disaster!

Aww that sucks, I was really looking forward to seeing this tower completed... hopefully they will devise some alternate construction methods and rebuild it.

That's the most probable thing...Maybe some extra support too...What the Company building this highrise is saying is that they are going to recalculate everything and restart the construction. The Escollera, even after this event, still recieved two more investors from Spain, meaning that the Proyect is still underway, only that it is 1 and a half years behind schedule.

Like a Colombian forumer said, this building might not ever be the highest building in colombia, since there is another high rise proyected for Medellin of about 250m. Supposedly to end construction by the first few months of 2009, if all goes well. But it is not yet confirmed that that proyect is indeed going to be built, so we'll see what hapens.

OMG that is what I get for not reading the entire thread. I posted a day ago that it would 'wobble in the wind', and now I see that PREVIOUS to my post, that it WOBBLED in the wind!!! I should read the whole post, but now sad thing, it should be dismantled and reconstructed with reinforced concrete.

Some X-bracing wouldn't go astray either.
It looks like the developer saved on costs by not hiring a structural engineer.
