One thing that is new is the construction of a new Metrobus line along Reforma. This will be the seventh Metrobus route, and, unlike the others, this one will be served by double-decker buses. The bus stops have already been built along the boulevard.
Another change is the addition of a bike lane along much of the boulevard.
And there is still the graffiti denouncing the disappearance of the 43 students in 2014.
Once upon a time, the Reforma was lined with elegant buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Very few of those buildings still stand.
The construction of new high-rise buildings continues. I had not noticed this nearly completed structure previously.
Some random shots along the Reforma...
I can never walk along the Reforma without taking some pictures of the iconic Monument to Independence... "El Angel". Here it is from a different angle.
The shimmering Torre Diana is perhaps my favorite of the new buildings constructed along the Reforma. It houses offices for a number of international firms including AT&T.
I had no idea what meaning behind this sculpture was. I did some research and discovered it commemorates a tragedy that occurred in 2009 when 49 children died in a fire at the ABC Day Care Center in Hermosillo, Mexico.
This rather bizarre piece of sculpture in front of the Mexican Social Security headquarters is entitled "The Angel of Social Security", and celebrates the 70th anniversary of that government agency.
By now I had reached that section of Reforma near the entrance to Chapultepec Park that in recent years has been a hub of skyscraper construction. The newest structure, Chapultepec Uno, is nearing completion, and in this photo appears to be attached to the Torre Mayor (to the right), which used to be the tallest building in Mexico.
Chapultepec Uno will be completed next year. At 771 feet tall, it will be the third tallest building in the city. It will contain offices, residences, and a Ritz Carlton Hotel.
Here Chapultepec Uno, the Torre Mayor, and, behind it, the Torre Reforma seem to merge into one massive structure.
The Torre Reforma, with a height of 807 feet, is currently the tallest building in the city.
I do not care for the style of the building. This side looks unfinished to me. And the other side is an ugly expanse of concrete.
Right across the street is the Torre Bancomer. It is for the moment, the second tallest building in Mexico City. I am not fond of its style either.
