10/10 !!! The tower is so beautiful and innovative ! Besides, the project preserves an old house at the very corner which is admirable... Cool to see construction started !

I examined the site of the Torre Reforma on Wikimapia and saw that a "gay disco club" may have occupied the site. That disco club was probably demolished to make room for the tower and mostly that historic edifice's new place.

That place is not going to be demolished, the old mansion is going to be part of the the project.

TORRE REFORMA

The best of this tower is that will match very well to the Torre Mayor , Paseo de la Reforma and Torre Bancomer (preproject on design).

Btw, the demolished buildings were some small, old, ugly and commercial buildings, but i dont have a pic, for sure we may find some one in the mexican forum

Indeed as far as I know the old mansion is going to be part of the whole project as cafeteria and restaurant. I also know that the house is going to be moved but not demolished.

I like how they're preserving that building, looks really good. As for the tower itself, I think it looks great, a good partner for Torre Mayor.

Great, finally there is movement on the site! I can't wait to see the tower rise!

Here is another view, although not rightly "to scale" but it gives us and idea of how great it will look!

I love how it fits perfectly with the Mayor and the St. Regis.

Beautiful 10/10. With Torre Mayor near it, the block will look amazing. Its a shame for the nice old building, but the Torre Reforma its just incredible.
