Interesting. I never seen a tower built like that. That is too bad though. What a loss of money for the developer and others involve.

they redisigned the project and now its going to be 15 stories high, shameful but its for the best, bad thing is people in colombia get really paranoid about things like that wich means we wont see any new projects taller than 100m for quite some time now

Oh my, they should have known that bare steel frames are dangerous (and outdated). As for the men who worked there, brave souls indeed.

From the very first picture of this thread, I knew this building was going to have structural problems.

Looks like it will be pretty dangerous to dismantle as well.

This tower was demolished or dismantled last year, according to Wikipedia.

This building design was completly fine, and it was perfectly posible, the problem is that the cunstructor enginer (not a local engineer) decided to built it in a wrong way and the structure failed during a strong storm, the building was completly remove and rigth now there is nothing in there, its goin to be rebuilt but with a lower high (aparently 58 fl)
