Informations

The Torre Colpatria (English: Colpatria tower) is a 50-story skyscraper in the downtown area of Bogotá, Colombia. It's the third largest building in the nation and the fifth-tallest in South America. Constructed from 1973 to 1978 and opened in 1979, it has a complete height of 196 metres (643 ft), becoming the tallest skyscraper of Colombia and holding this title until 2016, when the south tower of the BD Bacatá was topped off. The main headquarters of the Colpatria Bank are located in the building, in addition to a large number of other banks and financial corporations have offices in it. The building lies at the intersection of 26th street and 7th avenue, in the heart of the city's downtown.



Since 1998 the Colpatria Tower was illuminated nightly with thirty-six color changing Xenon lights. But, in 2012, the Dutch lighting company Philips replaced the old lights with a 120-meters-high LED system to enhance the lighting of the construction and project high-definition pictures. . Due to that, and also because it was the tallest skyscraper in Colombia for almost 40 years, the building is a landmark in the nation and dominates Bogota's skyline along with other structures like the BD Bacatá, the World Trade Center, FONADE and Colseguros buildings.

Informations

The Prime Tower, also called'Maag-Tower' in a previous stage of preparation, is a skyscraper in Zurich, Switzerland. At a height of 126 metres (413 feet ), it was the highest skyscraper in Switzerland from 2011 until 2015, when the Roche Tower at Basel (standing at 178 metres (584 feet )) was finished. The building is situated near the Hardbrücke railway station. The tower replaces an industrial facility that's been demolished. According to its developers, the tower's construction, which took 15 years to plan and execute, was a financial success, with its valuation based on rental rates exceeding the building cost by CHF 110 million.The tower and its two companion buildings, Cubus and Diagonal, are used primarily as office buildings. Due to its opening in December 2011, the tower hosts the'Clouds' restaurant on its top floor, a conference center, the Hotel Rivington & Sons on the ground floor, in addition to the offices of Deutsche Bank Schweiz, Homburger AG, Transammonia, Korn/Ferry International, Citibank Switzerland, Infosys, Repower AG, Ernst & Young, Zürcher Kantonalbank and consulting firms.
