You surely have better projects in your country, because I don't think "Los Faros de Panama" or Trump Ocean Club" (just to give you an example) are any way near to be bad projects, instead they are one of the biggest, taller, modern and more ambicious projects in Latin America, so please show me what you have in your city and maybe I'll change my opinion.

I don't think HK is fake, in fact is one of the best skylines in the world (some say is the best), and has great modern and diverse arquitecture styles and great height, I do agree that Dubai lacks that organic feel of a real city, because it has been built all at once, but HK wasn't built in one year and neither Panama City who has skyscrapers since the 70's and has been growing since that time, so I don't understand why do you find that to be fake, for me fake will be Dubai but that's the only city were I agree with you.

No, it will be "Los Faros de Panamá" just for 3 meters.

Well I know some day there will be more, maybe you have height regulations in your country?, but if they get to build at least one supertall in Switzerland I hope you like it, because if you don't, that will be awful having to stare at the biggest building in the city and hate it. Lucky for me I love this towers, and also love Trump and Los Faros.

They've changed the colors on this thing a couple of times, but not the overall structure I'm happy to see. Great modern design.

As the real estate market started to cool off in 2007, and Ice Tower and Bahia de la Pacifica got cancelled almost back to back, it didn't look good. But Panama City's market is still going strong, no doubt about it. Amazing resilience.

Stop the bullshit, your comments are crap, this is out of nowhere. If you don't have anything useful to say, don't visit this thread.

Well, that is still wrong because this thread isn't about that tower, and I personally think he was talking about the city.

Yeah, sorry guys...I should've checked SSP. I've mixed those names up before. I meant this one...



Wasn't trying to derail the thread with other projects, but rather making reference to the real estate market. However, there don't seem to be any projects on hold or delayed in Panama City, presently. The market seems healthy there.
