This building is fantastic. 9.5/10. It should be in the spot the Point is though in my opinion. The current location looks forced and hides the sheer scale of this massive building. And they should demolish that suburban villa and turn it into a central park or something nice like that.

I agree. Way to go Panama. I'll be visiting this amazing city this winter. I will surely take pics of the skyline from my own perspective. When do you think will the Biodiversity Museum be completed?

I hate to burst your bubble about Trump, you must be one of his fans. Trumps resorts in Baja Mexico never got out of the ground and the investors lost all of their deposits. The Trump Las Vegas was a huge bust with only a couple of condos sold out of the whole building and they sale for less than 1/3 original price. These are two examples out of many. Please name any success stories that come to you.

The TOC units are listed on Craigs List for $220,000, which is a huge discount from the original price.

Iconic, the structure will be, but not because of Trump-in spite of him.

Still is a sign of the economic stability, and example of this is the grade of investment Fitch has given to Panama recently, so even if this building is empty, which I personally doubt it will be, it will still be an icon of the stability the country has at this moment, and hopefully will help attract more projects of this magnitude or bigger in the near future.

Actually it can be seen by the front completely coming from the corredor higway, and by going thru paitilla district you can see the entire back without problems.

I don´t think it'll block the view from corredor, because is much smaller and is going to be right back to it not in front.

Wow, this tower is seen from off in any point of the city. I am charmed with the TOC.
And the pic is super cool Drums, greetings.
