3. SF
4. DC
5. Boston
6. Chicago
7. Mexico City
8. LA

Information taken from the Mexican forum, all credit to them.

Other Angles. It matches greatly with Torre Mayor's back:

It has a great impact on Mexico City's skyline

This is how the floors will be used:

Properly speaking, the title of this Thread should say "PREP". If I'm not wrong, "U/C" means tha the foundations are done and the first columns start rising.

They finished the demolition of the Construction that used to be at the site.



(By ominorg of the mexican forum.)

Now they need to move this historic edification to make room for Torre Reforma. Notice the Proximity with Torre Mayor (in the background of the pic).



(By ominorg of the mexican forum.)

This is how this histioric edification looks now, before being moved:



(By /-/_E_C_T_O_R 8§8 of the mexican forum.)

Once at its new position, it will be integrated to the Project. Caffés and Restaurant will be located here. This will be awesome when done.
