|The Torre Bacatá dominates the skyline in this view from La Candelaria.|
|Calle 19, in front of the Bacatá,|
is already congested and chaotic.
The adjoining streets are already chaotic and congested, and this new mini-city will compound that. The Bacatá will contain offices, luxury apartments, a hotel and a shopping mall. And there's little open space, and no green space nearby. How about the quality of life for the residents of this new superstructure and those living nearby?
|20th Street, behind the Bacatá:|
narrow and already busy.
|Carrera 5, on the tower's eastern side, is narrow and pepetually traffic-jammed.|
|What will cars and trucks entering and leaving this garage on 19th do to traffic?|
|The only nearby public area is Las Nieves Plaza, the haunt of prostitutes, alcoholics and drug addicts.|
|Bogotá's skyline, and the Bacatá, seen from near the Central Cemetery on 26th St.|
|Bacatá, with dramatic architecture.|
|In a nod toward public space, the Bacatá provided this wide sidewalk on Calle 19.|
