The Torre Latinoamericana is a skyscraper in downtown Mexico City, situated in the historic city center. Its central location, height, and history make it one of the city's most important landmarks. It is widely recognized internationally as an engineering and architectural landmark since it was the world's first major skyscraper successfully built on highly active seismic zone. The skyscraper notably withstood the 8.1 magnitude 1985 Mexico City earthquake without damage, whereas several other structures in the downtown area were damaged.
The Torre Latinoamericana was Mexico's tallest completed building for almost 27 years, from its opening in 1956 until 1982 when the 211.3 m tall Torre Ejecutiva Pemex was completed. Although the structure of the Hotel de México had already surpassed it a decade earlier, it wouldn't be finished until 1994.
