CDMX: El Centro


Contributor Reed Rickert created this beautiful video of the central district of Mexico City.  The focus of the video is the Torre Latinoamericana, one of the city's most recognizable landmarks.  Built in 1956, the 45 story tower stands just over 180 meters (just under 600 ft.) tall.  While it's only the #8 building by height (as of early 2019), it has the distinction of being the first skyscraper built in an active seismic zone, and its performance during the devastating earthquake of 1985 is considered examplary.
