Its opening is planned for August 2010. To date, some 90 thousand square meters have been constructed, 35% of the 265 thousand in total.

Commercial director Rosella Violi informed Prensa.com: "The building has allocated 80% of its sales and the customers have been from United States, Venezuela, Colombia and Europe for the most part."

The promoters have no fear that the buyers will abandon their contracts for which they made a 20% down payment with 80% left on the balance. The possibility of defaults could affect the project’s funding and this is precisely the reason why Moses Cohen, chairman of the Banking Association of Panama, advises caution in regard to evaluations.
