SAO PAULO | City Tower | 650m | 2132ft | Pro

This is a project to build a new CBD in the city of São Paulo.

Anhembi is the biggest convention center in the city, and it is located near the Campo de Marte airport.

The airport would be deactivated.



The building project is from the spaniard José Ignacio Bedia Urbano.

Here is the video:



The place:

It looks a lot like the sears towers, indeed!

Some forumers found some news in a spanish periodic: http://www.elperiodicomediterraneo.c...sp?pkid=346306

There are a lot of news about this area in the press. This airport belongs to the federal government, and the city wants to deactivate it and make this tech park. The anhembi convention center is already the largest one in the city, but the city mayor wants to increase its size, but its impossible to do it without taking the airports land.

Personally, I dont think it will be built, but only god knows! The proposal is serious, but it depends on a lot of factors.

I almost thought that airport was Congonhas(CGH) which scared me since I thought they were going to demolish Congonhas to build this thing. I'm glad this isn't so.

I'm very surprised that a city like Sao Paulo does not have a supertall yet. I wonder why that's the case.

Well, the whole project looks good enough for me, but the centerpiece kinda lacks character... Should be something more prominent when it is to be the tallest building on the whole American continent...

totally agree, and it won't be the tallest skyscraper in the world, as it says on the first pic...

That picture is probably old, Chi Spire has the old design there and Russia Tower is lower so it is probably the 600m proposal, which was modified quite a time ago...
