Hey guys, I came across this article yesterday and I thought I would share with you. You might already know about this project but here it is anyway. I hope you guys can read English.

Cheers


(KKP Architecture Report – April, 2006) These days the race for building the tallest skyscraper in the world is back in full gear. At one point in history the United States seemed to have a monopoly in this area, but that is no longer the case.

Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Shanghai and Dubai are all new members of the elite “Super Tall” skyscraper club.

This does not mean the U.S. has lost its edge at all. Recently a 2,000 ft tall tower designed by the renowned Spanish artist and architect – Santiago Calatrava – has been proposed for the city of Chicago. The tower has been named “Fordham Spire” and it is scheduled for completion in 2010.

This phenomenon is also spreading to other parts of the world and there seems to be important projects popping up in other countries in Asia, Europe and Latin America. One of these projects is currently in the works for Mexico City.

The project is being developed by Japan’s Nishimatsu Construction Co., Ltd. and a Mexican consortium based in Monterrey, Mexico.

The design and exact location has not been disclosed but the tower is expected to be 403m to the roof and 100 stories high. 40% of the building will be assigned for commercial space, 35% for residential and 15% for retail.

At this point the project is in the early planning stages and the developers are still trying to get financial backing for their tower. In an interview last week – they expressed quite a bit of confidence in their venture and they believe the project will materialize sooner rather than later.

Assuming this tower gets built, it will become Mexico’s tallest skyscraper. This title has been held by Torre Mayor at 225m, since 2003, also located in Mexico City.

Although the name has not been officially given to the press – it is believed to be Platinum Tower, due to the color and texture of the façade.

We would appreciate a lot if you could confirm this information giving us your source, 'cause it sounds very unlikely to be true.

Hay les va una traducción no muy buena ..pero paque nos demos una idea....parece improbable pero ojalá pronto se sepa algo firme


" En estos días la carrera para construir el rascacielos más alto al mundo esta en su apogeo. Alguna vez en la historia los Estados Unidos parecieron tener el monopolio de este área, pero ya no es el caso.
Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Shanghai y Dubai son los nuevos miembros de la elite " Súper Alta " el club de rascacielos ”.

Esto no significa que EE UU haya perdido su lugar en absoluto. Recientemente han propuesto a una mega torre de 2,000 pies diseñada por el renombrado artista y arquitecto Español Santiago Calatrava, para la ciudad de Chicago. La torre ha sido llamada " Fordham Toser y esta programada su terminación en el año 2010.

Este fenómeno también se extiende a otras partes del mundo y allí aparecen proyectos importantes en Asia, Europa y América Latina. Uno de estos proyectos es para la Ciudad de México.

El proyecto está siendo desarrollado por la Compañía de Construcción Nishimatsu de Japón y un consorcio mexicano con base en Monterrey, México.

El diseño y la posición exacta no han sido revelados pero se espera que la torre tenga una altura de 403 mtros. a la azotea y 100 pisos. El 40 % del edificio será asignado para el espacio comercial, el 35 % para residencial y el 15 % para la venta al por menor.

En este punto el proyecto está en las primeras etapas de planificación y los impulsores de este proyecto todavía tratan de conseguir el apoyo financiero para su torre. En una entrevista la semana pasada - ellos expresaron bastante confianza en su empresa y ellos creen que el proyecto se materializará más pronto de lo que se espera.

La edificación de esta torre lo convertiría en el rascacielos más alto de México. Este título ha sido ostentado hasta hoy por la Torre Mayor de 225m. desde el 2003, también localizado en Ciudad de México.

Aunque oficialmente no hayan dado al nombre a la prensa se cree que la llamaran la Torre Platinum, debido al color y la textura de la fachada".

Bueno seria maravilloso pero hay que tomar siempre estos reportes con cautela y no emocionarse mucho hasta que sea un rumos mas sustentable con algun render o comentado en algun periodico, seria increiblemente alta y por estar en la ciudad de mexico seria una iversion de no menos de 500 millones de dolares, habra que esperar.

pero ahora que leo con mas atension si parece una broma dice "The design and exact location has not been disclosed but the tower is expected to be 403m to the roof and 100 stories high. 40% of the building will be assigned for commercial space, 35% for residential and 15% for retail." disculpen pero 40 + 35 + 15 no da 100% seria un error algo ridiculo para empezar.
