I don't think that they are ugly, I think that the design is ok, but not appropriate for the height of 100 metres...

Para todos los nay-sayers de este hilo, deberían tomar en cuenta que El Salvador todavía es una economía emergente y proyectos como éste significan mucho en la vida económica de un país que aún trata de salir de una crisis económica y social. Antes de criticar y ser tán "Hollier than Thou", lo siento no sé como traducirlo así que busquenlo en su diccionario español-inglés, deberían de mostrar un poco de respeto y simpatía. A veces si no se tiene nada bueno que decír es mejor no decír nada.

English version
For the nay-sayers in the thread you should take in account that El Salvador is still an emerging economy and projects like this one mean a lot in the economic life of a country that it still is trying to come out of an economic and social crisis. Before you criticize and act "Hollier than Thou" you should all show a little respect and sympathy. Sometimes when we don't have anything nice to say is better not to say anything at all.

sure is a 104 meters? it looks shorter 24floors because 2 are underground comes to 4.7m a floor way to high for a residencial building.

Not bad for Salvador it would have been better if the towers were not so close to each other it makes it look like a single massive building. the ones that are gona go infront are nice.

I understand is 28 counting the 2 levels underground, so it's 26 floors plus 2 underground. It's confusing I know but that's how it is.

Well, if it makes you feel good: Beautiful towers, especially the cladding! Good for El Salvador!

This is an Skyscraper forum and people will discuss the design of buildings, regardless of the country they're at.

The design of this building is average for me. But you can't ask people for sympathy towards a development just because it is in an emerging economy.

There is a difference between constructive criticism and plain arrogance and some people here that's all they exhude, sorry but just read the postings, if they are going to criticize they should elaborate not just interject. I am not defending the towers, I know they don't have the best of designs but for the country that may be alright, maybe it was a mistake from the person that posted this thread under highrises to begin with.
