Perfect

Koolhaas did a perfect design. I think you have to be mexican to like the tower. It reminds me our Aztec roots and the strength of the Mexico people.

I hope they can build the tower and solve all these problems that are causing polemic to the project. I think the tower is great constrcution for the city and the country of México. Is a wonderful way to celebrate 200 years of independance and to have one of the tallest building in Latin America. Great project, desing and height. What else can you ask for?

It's a lil chunky, but overall it will give the city some variation, heck, it would give any city some variation.

Wow, the more I look at it the more I love the design ... simple, sophisticated, monumental ... for sure, it'll be an icon of Mexico City.

The skylight on one side and turning inside the building to come out of another side is just amazing !

Looks great. The tower can easily add to Mexico city's already diverse skyline. Fancy buildings, cathedrals, Supertalls, big mountains, and pyamids. Sounds nice, eh?

Architecture is not just for a few, a true architect needs to give "quality products", that are beautiful for "normal" people, not just for architects.

beauty is beauty. It looks like another great boost for Mexico City. Being different is the only way to be remembered.
