The Revolution Tower


The Revolution Tower is one of the latest additions to Panama’s growing high-rise buildings which are transforming the city into a modern metropolis.

The Revolution Tower is a controversial “corkscrew” tower complex of modern offices in one of the most prestigious real estate areas in Panama City, just a few minutes away from the banking center.

The construction of this stunning high-class office tower started in 2008 and will be finished this year.  It consists of 52 floors.  The tower will be used to accommodate modern offices and fall under the category of high-rise twist-scrapers.  Its main construction materials are tainted glass and reinforced concrete.

The Revolution Tower is a magnificent example of contemporary urban architecture which is sure to raise many brows in Panama City transients and locals alike.  I’m sure it will be an impressive landmark in the heart of Panama City’s banking and business center.  It’s office space ranges from 2,000 to 6,500 square meters with private, secure working areas and a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and glittering urban lights at night.  The last height (including the spire) is 242.90 meters.

The developer of the building is F&F Properties Ltd. Inc. and the architect is Pinzón Lozano y Asociados.  F&F Properties Ltd. Inc. is one of the Central America’s leading real estate developers and responsible for many of the architectural landmarks on the city’s skyline.  Among its gorgeous buildings projects are:  the Venetian Tower, the Vitri Tower, Ocean Two, The Panamera, the Twist Tower, the Titanium and the Revolution Tower amongst many others.

The Revolution Tower is currently 92 percent sold and is located in Calle 50 and Calle 56 in Panama City, Panama.  I took many pictures of this tower, but only selected 12 of them to include in this blog.  Not all of them will be included in a single blog post.   It would saturate the readers with too much pictorial information.  Instead, I will include two or three images of the building per post, to give you ample time to flavor this unusual “corkscrew” design edifice which stands out amongst the crowd in the middle of the metropolis.

Below are two pictures of the base of the Revolution Tower.  Enjoy.  (Click on the images to expand them.)

I encourage you to return tomorrow to discover the rest of the structure of this controversial building in the vibrating capital of Panama in the middle of the Americas.  Will be waiting for you here.  Good Day.
