About This File

The Torre Latinoamericana (English: Latin-American Tower) is a skyscraper in downtown Mexico City, Mexico. Its central location, height (188 m or 597 ft; 44 stories) and history make it one of the city's most important landmarks. It is also widely recognized internationally as an engineering and architectural landmark since it was the world's first major skyscraper successfully built on highly active seismic land. The old skyscraper withstood the 1985 Mexico City earthquake without damage.

The Torre Latinoamericana was Mexico City's tallest building from 1956, when it was built, until the 1984 completion of the Torre Ejecutiva Pemex, which is 22 m higher (although, if one subtracts the height of the television transmitter atop the Torre Latinoamericana, it had already been surpassed in 1972 by the 207 m-tall Hotel de México, which was subsequently remodelled and turned into the World Trade Center Mexico City). It is situated on the corner of the Eje Central and Madero Street.

YES!!!! I screamed like a teenage fangirl when I saw this.:) I love this building! There was an old model here in the STEX, and it was good, but underscaled, well, the time has come to retire it. Thank you for remastering such an iconic landmark for SC4.

On a more serious note, this tower has withstood three major destructive earthquakes, 1957, 1985 and 2017. It is truly a simbol of our resilience, I don't know, it warms my heart to see it stand proud on the skyline. Once again, thank you for this.

Excelente diseño!! Que gran trabajo haces, sigue haciendo edificios latinos por favor!! Me gustaría que hicieras de mi ciudad Lima la Torre del Banco de la Nación que es el actual edificio más alto con 135.5 metros y también te pediría algunos rascacielos residenciales de Panamá como The Point, Ocean Two, Vitri, etc, ya que casi no hay rascacielos residenciales en SimCity, todos son de oficinas, ojalá puedas hacerlos, saludos desde Perú!! :)

      Installation Instructions:
      Extract the file folder and copy it to your SimCity 4 Plugins folder (usually MyDocuments/SimCity 4/Plugins). Buildings can be found in Landmark menu, sorted by plop cost.
      Most files have been packed in a .dat file which is required, do not delete. The two different lot files (landmark and ploppable with jobs) are left as seperate files and so that they can be used alone or both at the same time.  
      The DarkNite version (DN) requires SimFox's Day and Nite Mod.
      Warning:
      Only use either the MaxisNite or the DarkNite version, you cannot use both at the same time!
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Note:  Due to the nature of the building shape anti-alliasing had to be enabled on this model. Enabling anti-aliasing can sometimes produce grafic glitches when two anti-aliased BATs are overlapping each other.

      Chase Tower was built in 1959, to be the headquarters for the National Bank of Detroit. The building has gone through a number of name changes, reflecting a series of mergers, and was christened with its most recent name in 2006. The most consistent name for the building is "The Cheesegrater", coined for its facade of alternating windows and marble panels. Detroit's first skyscraper, the Hammond Building, built in 1889, was demolished to make way for Chase Tower.
       
      Chase Tower is surrounded by several Detroit landmarks, including One Detroit Center, The Guardian Building, The Penobscot Building, and Campus Martius Park.
       
       
      There five lots included. CO§§§ and CO§§ growables, ploppables, and a landmark. They can be used at the same time without any conflicts. Ploppable and landmark versions will appear in your Landmarks Menu.
       
      If you're playing a German or Spanish copy of the game, the query will automatically read in German or Spanish.
       
       
      Dependencies:
       
      One Flag, Many Nations by Pegasus
      International Day of Peace from the Official SimCity 4 Website
       
      These dependencies are a mod that allows you to choose which nation's flag will appear, and then the flags themselves.
       
      Please note that not having these dependencies will not result in brown boxes, error messages, or game crashes. The only thing that will happen is that no flags will show. You must be product registered and logged in in order to download from the official SimCity 4 website.

      The Olde Building was built in 1927. It is designed by Albert Kahn, with sculptural work by Corrado Parducci. The building sits across the street from the famous Lafayette and American Coney Islands, on the corner of Griswold Street and Lafayette Boulevard, in Detroit, Michigan. Its address is 751 Griswold Street.
       
      It once housed headquarters for Olde, which was bought by H&R Block, who then had offices in the building. Recently, H&R Block moved to the nearby Dime Building, and The Olde Building is currently being marketed as retail on the first two floors, and lofts above.
       
      This month, a member of the Detroit online community, Jeff Colby, died. While I didn't know him in real life, and I didn't know him very well online, he was very helpful on the forums when I asked for help on Barry Sanders Project buildings. He's provided reference photos and histories for many of my Barry Sanders Project buildings.

      The Vinton Building was named for Robert K. Vinton, grandson of the founder of one of Detroit's oldest building firms. Designed by Albert Kahn, the steel framed building was constructed in 1917 and features Italian Romanesque influences with elaborate terra cotta detailing on the upper levels. Early advertising boasted of high speed elevators and direct daylight in every office.
       
      In 2005, a group of entrepreneurs led by former Detroit Lion Robert Porcher purchased the building with plans for residential condominiums and commercial space. Renovations began shortly afterwards, assuring the building's continued livelihood.
