Panama City – The City of Skyscrapers

Panama’s Banking District

Located in the city center, Calle 50 to be exact, you can see an array of tall commercial buildings within walking distance of each other. An interesting thing to note about this city is that most of these buildings are named after a bank. The majority contains as much as 40+ floors not accounting for the parking floors which ranges between 10-12 floors.

“El Tornillo” the most remarkable one of them all (pictured  below) also known as the F&F Tower / BBA is located obliquely opposite the exclusive Soho Mall (seen on the left).
