Nothing is happenning right now.....the field is full of scraps from the under construction one.....what we do know is that they want to finish this one first, and then start promoting the taller one. We look forward for the taller one being built.

Greetings!

The construction on the building is almost finished, the spears are missing but in Panama you can get the occupation permits before the whole building is completed. The fire deparment makes sure everything is safe and give the go.

This pics are from May 14th.

Thanks for the photos CHI3.

The tower is actually starting to look nice with the sunshine on it. I hate the grey concrete but when the sun shines on it, it looks white. White is way more stylish and condo like, way better than the concrete commie look. I also like how the entrance/lobby turned out.

Marking its 16th property, and its first in Latin America, Hard Rock International today announced that the Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is expected to open in December 2011.

Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis, which brings the acclaimed "Hard Rock Hotel experience" to an ever-popular global tourist destination, is developed and owned by Megapolis Investment Group and will be managed locally by Decameron Hotels & Resorts.

Located on Balboa Avenue, and connected by bridgeway to the cross-street Multicentro Mall and the Megapolis Convention Center, currently under construction, Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is situated on more than three-quarters of an acre, with lush landscaping and an oversized, free-form infinity pool with private cabanas.
