New design :
That's not Torre Reforma... That's the new design for tower R432.
Torre Reforma continues with the same design originally planned.

Thats not the correct thread, Torre Reforma (this one), its number is 509, and its avenue is Reforma, so it's Reforma 509, the other will also be on Reforma but in the Number 432, so it's Reforma 432, two totally different towers.

No, this tower is Reforma 483, Reforma 509 is on the other side of Torre Mayor, the one currently awaiting for the existing building to be demolished. Reforma 432 is further down Reforma, like two blocks away on the east bound side. Neither Reforma 509 nor 432 have started, both are awaiting to solve their respective issues. Hope this clear things up.

cheers

Oh you're right, R509 is Punto Chapultepec.

Ok, so today I'm bringing an update by forumer Gerardos from SSC Mexico. According to information obtained by him through someone involved in the project, the tower has kept a good pace. According to the source, most of the work has continued throughout the basements due to their complexity. In one of the previous updates we saw that there was already columns on site ready to be inserted and then buried inside a concrete column, this was supposed to start today. What this person says is that unlike the tower across the street (Torre BBVA Bancomer) they are trying to finish the basement first before starting with the upper structure, so yeah, that's the update. He was also given some pictures which are below.

Cheers

That's quite a complex construction site to work on.

No quiere decir que haya 35 niveles bajo el nivel de la calle. Se refiere a que hay entre 10 y 12 sótanos que dan una excavación de -35 m. aprox....

It´s not a number of floors underground, but the depth of the excavation, 35 meters, or about 114 feet below ground... So we have around 10-12 basements, not 35!!!!

Cheers!

Update by /-/_E_C_T_O_R 8§8. The pictures show steel ribs distributed all over the perimeter of the "open book" structure that makes up the building.
