The tower's only crane it's currently being dismantled. Some of us believe it's to bring in a stronger crane and also to relocated, but there's nothing set on stone.

Cheers

After a very long wait, the first column has arrived!!!
From now on, it's a fight to completion along side Torre BBVA Bancomer on the other side of the street.

Nice! It was about time this thing could start to show some real progress. Up until now all the construction work has been done below the ground.

In the next few weeks we´ll finally start to see the tower grow upwards...that´s real exciting!

Modernity doesn't make a city beautiful, people always forget that. There's cities in Mexico and Canada that i'm sure are worth the nomination...

There's no crane anymore so this one is doing the job right now. We also don't know when the bigger crane arrives.

Pues si caminaras por esos edificios no están tan feos. Es un gran contraste entre los edificios de baja y alta altura, pero no es feo.

No, la torre mas alta de México va a ser la Torre KOI en Valle Oriente-Monterrey con una altura no confirmada de 330 metros. Si quieres saber mas sobre esta torre te invito a que leas su hilo en este misma sección de "skyscrapers" en este link:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1437365

Si quieres información mas actualizada en español, puedes también leer en su respectivo foro en la Sección de Monterrey en SSC México aquí:

I don't only look at modernity. But I also wouldn't go as far as to say that modernity DOESN'T make a city beautiful. Under the circumstances modernity can indeed make a place look beautiful.

I also think of other cities, which are not modern, as beautiful. For instance, Guadalajara or Guanajuato in Mexico I think they are beautiful, and they are not modern at all. But also Toronto, where I live, is very modern but it's also very beautiful.

Why did they change the Torre Reforma 432's design??? The original one was so awesome...I'm really disappointed.

New design :
