The tower is awesome. I used to reject the idea of this building, having such a plain wall facing Reforma Ave and another one facing north. But it has turned out to be quite interesting. The reason is the design and construction process. Imagine a 57 story-800 ft tall tower with no columns or obstructions inside, no pile foundations, subject to strong earthquakes, and virtually hanging over a 1930s preserved mansion. I believe this tower has more in common with a suspension bridge than with a skyscraper... As far as I┤m concerned, no building has been built like this one.
This one should be groundbreaking for future skyscrapers worldwide!

I never expected to see such an intimate picture of the future lobby of Torre Reforma; it gives a great sense of the real scale of this wall, it's HUGE already!
