Sadly, the tower was cancelled.



The proposal for a new tower is being studied, but not with this design. It was mainly politics, as you might expect.... so sad.

Something will get built, and soon. Carlos Slim's gotta do something with his cash sooner or later, I figure.

Hey, the tower was cancelled for some politics stuff and some people with such a archais minds, talking of the " damage" that the tower could do to their weeds and the landmark ( by the weird design)...

But, the government of the city are looking for some other place where the tower will be build, and they say that reforma, circuito or Insurgentes will receive this project. So isn't cancelled at all, there'll be a HUGE monster in Mexico City, and Ive have to be there at 2010. .

Anyway, I think another place could be better, those little tiny buildings near to Torre Bicentenarioon in the renders, didnt look that good.



PD. btw Sorry by the mistakes on lenguage, i used to get C on English Tests at college.

thanks... I used Google to translate the article and it says in one part

"In press conference, the local agent chief executive said that already he gave to the instruction to the secretary of Urban Development and House, Arturo Aispuro Colonel so that he looks for “other possibilities” in the city and so that he fits the project.

And I reiterate that it will be the Legislative Assembly that makes the final decision and for it it has mentioned the delegates who have shown interest in this or another similar project and are: Azcapotzalco, Benito Juárez, Iztacalco, Gustavo A. Log, Tláhuac and Tlalpan."

Is this accurate translation? and does this mean the tower will be relocated or totally dead?

I'm confused, as the article title is translated to

They cancel Tower Bicentennial in Hills; they will look for another estate


Does this mean it will be relocated?

..... the article title says that the "torre bicentenario" has been canceled, but they're looking for another district in mexico city to build a similar project.

"hills" (las lomas) is the name of the district where this tower was proposed.








so... this thread is dead... thanks to mexican politics...

The main reason according to the New York Times is that there was strong neighborhood opposition, and several threats of lawsuits to stop it from being build in historic Chapultepec Park. To add on even more bad news, the mayor of (DF) Mexico City, Marcelo Ebrard, withdrew his support for the tower. The NYT also reported that the developers names weren't released because they are reportedly looking for another location.

The sign reads in English, No to Torre Bicentenario,
No to the destruction of the city's forest.
