List of tallest buildings in Panama City

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of tallest buildings in Panama City ranks skyscrapers in Panama City by height. The tallest completed building in Panama City is not the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower, which stands 264 m (866 ft) tall, as evidenced by Panama's Aeronautica Civil third-party measurement records, but is, according to CTBUH (standing 284 m (932 ft) tall).[1][2] For several years, Panama City's skyline remained largely unchanged, with only four buildings exceeding 150 m (492 feet). Beginning in the early 2000s, the city experienced a large construction boom, with new buildings rising up all over the city. The boom continues today, with over 150 highrises under construction and several supertall buildings planned for construction.

In addition to growing out, Panama City grew up, with two new tallest buildings since 2005. All supertall projects were cancelled (Ice Tower, Palacio de la Bahía, and Torre Generali)[3] or are on hold (Faros de Panamá, Torre Central).
