Panama is world famous the Panama canal. Other than that is it not very well known. So for many in the rest of the world, Panama might look like a unlikely place for skyscrapers and tall buildings.

Even the famous US Investor Donald Trump choose Panama for his first skyscraper investment outside of United States by building the sail shaped 70 storey Trump Tower Hotel in Panama City. That Trump Tower is currently not only the tallest building in Panama but also the tallest building in Latin America. Just imagine tiny Panama having the tallest building in the whole of South America beating its giant neighbors with densely populated cities and booming economies like Brazil and Mexico!
Starting from around 2000, Panama city saw a rush in skyscrapers and now there are more than 150 high rise building are in this city. There are many more tall buildings currently under construction in this country and new proposal for even taller buildings are constantly coming out. The latest in this is a proposal for a new 320 meter or 1050ft tall skyscraper called the Central Tower.
