Panama City skyscraper sprawl
Taken from the top of the lookout tower in Panama Viejo this photo depicts the furthest eastern reaches of Panama City’s incessant spread.
Although the image looks like it could be of a single giant structure, it is actually a conglomerate of numerous buildings built along side one another. Note the number of cranes. Half of buildings in the Panama City skyline have a crane perched on top. Also notable is the similarity in form between this building conglomeration and “the middle finger.”
These buildings are being constructed in the middle of a drained tidal wetland, most likely in anticipation that the city will enjoy a stunning and vibrant future and eventually spread to engulf it.
