Panama 2019: F&F Tower, Panama City

Panama City has enormous contrasts: some of the most stunning new high rise buildings in the world, and some of the greatest concentrations of poverty. This F&F tower is visible from the Corredor del Sur when you come from the airport or the Crowne Plaza through the city on the way to the interior. Lily was nearby the other day and sent this pic. I usually get pics from a greater distance, often from a moving car along the Corredor.

The F&F tower won an architectural award in 2011 as one of the best designs of the year. The tower is often compared with Al Tijaria Tower in Kuwait, and Evolution Tower in Russia.

You might wonder how the poor feel about buildings like this when there isn’t enough money for food or health care or housing. The answer is they are very proud of their beautiful city, and the stunning high rise construction that draws the attention of the world.

The F&F tower is an office building. Clearly any office on any floor would have spectacular views of the city.
