This tower is too big, is not high or tall, but it is big, broad.

Mortgages are still possible, but more difficult to obtain.

Megapolis is a good buy for the price and the split on rental income that it will provide. The developers own the Decapolis next door and the cheapest room is $249 per night and it is rated #1 on TripAdvisor and over 80% occupancy.

Is it possible for the person who takes pictures of Megapolis to take a picture of Los Faros De Panama? I heard rumors that it restarted construction. Thanks.

If they don't build the supertall part of this project, the whole thing will be a gigantic piece of shit. With the exception of Tower Finnancial Center, the Revolution Tower and the other finnancial buildings, the city looks like something out of the 70's. They need some more tall, glassy, buildings.

Couldn't agree more. At least this one is finally getting a side cladded. White is nothing special in a sea of other buildings just like it. But I was so tired of looking at the exposed concrete.

Panama needs some glitzy glass towers.

Don't worry, they are coming, slowly but coming, in a few years the city will be full of them believe me, specially in Calle 50.

A great many of these buildings are condominiums, not office towers which is why you see all of these structures with balconies. I visited Panama City and looked at real estate because I considered retiring there at one point. It's quite impressive to see in person.

I'm assuming you chose not to retire there then?

That's right, for a couple different reasons, first I had the feeling that I would never fit into the culture and my spanish isn't very good. Also, I was concerned about having to purchase health care because the coverage I have with my retirement plan wouldn't cover me in Panama. It was a tough decision though because I saw some beautiful new condominiums with views of the Pacific Ocean and the city in the price range of $85,000 to $100,000 and I thought the people there were very friendly. I think that the high rise projects that are being planned or are under construction will make this city even more impressive in the future.

I would agree to an extent. Panama has a lot of buildings of nearby height so the "imposing" aspect of it wouldn't really work like it would definitely do in Pyongyang
