Quick City Overview: Santiago de Chile












City: Santiago de Chile
Place: Quick City Overview









Within the collection of latin american capitals, Santiago de Chile is quite an interesting case. Though it has a wide range of architectural styles of the last centuries, it definitely stands out for its more recent buildings and corporate towers, which by the way are mostly concentrated in the Financial District. It is in this place where the highest of the gems of Chile is located: the Costanera Center, designed by the famous architect César Pelli, a modern skyscraper of 300m. high who is surrounded by a huge mall of almost 10 floors and 3 other towers. A few kilometers away is also the Historical Center with examples of older styles, widely used in other countries of the region (mostly Argentina), such as the french Beaux Arts public palaces and other smaller buildings related to the stock exchange businesses. And among the concrete jungle, some colonial houses. This probably is the most captivating thing about Santiago de Chile: the central neighborhoods have a strong international cosmopolitan style, while the metropolitan areas look a lot more like the other biggest cities of the Andes, such as, for example, the capitals of Peru, Ecuador or Colombia.

Santiago de Chile: Financial District












City: Santiago de Chile
Place: Financial District







The Financial District of Santiago Chile, friendly known by the people of the city as Sanhattan, follows the same wave of construction of new neighborhoods of the capital cities of the world, since the late 1980s till the 21th Century. Interestingly enough, though these new district share the same logic, they actually are very different from each other, unlike other older styles such as the Beaux Artes thoughout the world (outside of France) or the International Style, to name a few. The new sub-neighborhood of Sanhattan was born because of two strategical reasons: the big size of the terrains and the transportation advantages. Within Sanhattan are located two of the biggest icons of Chile: the Titanium Tower and the Costanera Center.

Santiago de Chile: Costanera Center












City: Santiago de Chile
Place: Costanera Center








The Costanera Center Tower is one the pieces of a bigger complex who also has a huge mall of almost 10 floors and three other corporate towers. This skyscraper is one of the most relevant examples of the international modern architecture in Latin America. When it was finally finished, it quickly became an icon for Santiago de Chile thanks to its height, which makes it an easy target throughout the city and indirectly acts as geographical point. The mall itself also became one new meeting point for the people pf the city, along with the waves of tourists (mostly from Argentina) who go there and buy technological and clothing products. Lastly, the “Sky Costanera” Observation Deck on the last floors, where you can feel the wind, the sound of dozens and dozens of people, and the gorgeous views of the city.
