One of Mexico City's most iconic buildings is the Latin American Tower.  When it was completed in 1956 it was the tallest skyscraper in Mexico and in all of Latin American.  Its innovative engineering has enabled it to survive three major earthquakes without damage.

After more than 60 years the tower is showing its age.  For some time there has been talk of giving the building a facelift, although because of its status as an historic monument its exterior look cannot be changed.  On this trip I noticed that a large swath of windows have been replaced.  When the facelift is complete the building should look like new again.
