MEXICO CITY | Torre Mayor | 738 FT / 225 M | 55 FLOORS | 2003

This 55 story building along the Reforma in Mexico City is one of the main anchors of the MC skyline. I was completed in 2003 and was designed by the Ziedler Roberts Partnership of Canada. The building is the tallest in all of Latin America, eclipsing the Parque Central Towers in Caracas by 13ft.

The building is essentially a point ended elliptical prism overlaid onto a rectangular prism. The top and bottom end of the elliptical portion of the building is sheared off, created an openness at the base of the building and a distictively shaped top.

There is an observation deck at the top of the tower.

I was in Mexico City in January 2005 and took some photos - unfortunately I didn't get to go to the obs. deck due to severely limited hours at that time.

The building also has a very distinctive lighting scheme, which I don't have a photo of.

Even if you are 1 in a million, there are still 7,000 people just like you...
