I know it's a bit hard to see the skyline from the last last one.

I think skylines in South America are consolidating, some are a bit ahead like Buenos Aires and Santiago. But even this cities are renovating constantly, Puerto Madero development in Buenos Aires is recently. Santiago looked consolidated till the new projects of Costanera and Titanium, that are much much higher than the existing skyline, so new proyects have to devlop in the future to consolidate the new Santiago skyline. Lima financial centre in San Isidro had its boom years by the end of the 90´s but since the second half of this decade new, taller and better projects are being build or proposed. Even the huge concrete jungle of Sao Paulo is moving its main skyline from traditional Paulista Avenue to the new financial area in Berrini. Bogota´s skyline was the first to consolidate in the continent, back in the 70´s, however new clusters are being deveopled away from the traditional centre. Caracas was the top in altitude with Torres del Parque but since more than 15 years no relevant highrise has been build.

South American cities have been World leaders in apartment buildings, but they are new in having one consolidated skyline with higher buildings than the rest of the city. Contrary to North America, where most cities have one CBD with skyscrapers and the rest is housing suburbs, or Europe where tall apartment building is reserved for only some cities due to the importance they give to their historic centres, the South American city model have been one of big areas of tall apartment buildings, the best examples are Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.

gracias. Ahí vamos, tratando de ser una futura competencia de Santiago en cuanto a skyline. Cuando la Titanium y la Costanera estén terminadas va a quedar sorpendente Santiago, una verdadera patada a los cojones de nuestro skyline Sanisidrino. jajaj

some more from Lima

Lima´s "petit" Twin towers



This one is a bit old, the Financial Centre seen from the City centre. This image should be looking better today with the construction of Westin, Capital and Caral. It will look even better in 2 years with the HSBC Tower and the J.Prado Tower.


But after all, Lima is still a very flat city

Within the near future have already announced plans for new office skyscrapers in the area.
