U.S. tycoon Donald Trump on Wednesday opened its first Latin American hotel, a 70-story luxury resort on the Pacific in Panama City, which is also the tallest building in Latin America.

I think we all need to take Mr. Donald Trump much more seriously now that this wonderful and beautiful tower has been built.

Go on one of the Panama forums and read how unhappy the owners of the condos are with the whole deal. Trump just marketed his name and doesnt own and did not build the project-just like he always does.

i know im late in asking this but the glass atrium on the front has bin cancelled? to me that takes away sooo much from the building...also is the building painted already looks unfinished from the pics. maybe we need some professional shots to do this structure justice, it is quite unique.

The entire building is not yet finished, they just opened the hotel, but the building lacks a lot of work yet.

Okay, adding a spire on top might not be a problem (maybe with heli), but constructing a 50-level glass atrium with on-going operation at the hotel? Sounds like big discounts for residents.

A propos spire: has this feature been skipped? Some renders don't show it, and Dr Drums posting mentions a height of 284m - same for CTBUH, nothing about 293m... does that spire make the difference? On the other hand, a 9 meter spire would be ridicoulouly small for this massive building...

According to the official info about the height of the building, is by adding the spire that it reaches the final height of 293m , the spire was brought from Hong Kong and has recently arrived to Panama, it will be put into place very soon, the hotel is only the base portion of the building, so construction up there doesn't affect the guests at all, soon they will open the entire building.

This tower is good, in addition to the large concrete pillar on the waterfront.

As I pointed out in another thread. You are wrong. Know your sources.

Nice!, but I think the lightning should be a little better, maybe like the Rivage Tower.

This is very remarkable. An almost 300 meter tall building, with just some villas as neigbours?? Which are even blocking the way to the sea... Are there any plans to develop these locations as well?

btw: This area deserves a boulevard, so the guests of the Ocean Club can enjoy an evening stroll along the sea.
