Captured from the 20th floor in the Pacific Point building in Punta Pacifica, built by Pacific Development. The views are of the Bahia de Panama (bay of Panama), San Francisco, and Costa del Este in the foreground. Construction in Panama continues to build right up to the water line and shows no signs of slow down with the recent building tax exoneration extension.
Captured mid-morning on Via Veneto in El Cangrejo. Making a right turn at the MacDonalds on Via España, you turn onto Via Veneto which is a commercial 2 way street. Many shops are located on Via Veneto including Manolo's Restaurant, The Veneto Casino at Windham Grand Hotel, the development offices of Bala Beach, Torres de Alba Aparti-Hotel, Restaurante Pomodoro, and Restaurante Wine Bar to name a few. In addition to being the back entrance to the Hotel El Panama, this street has it's fare share of "red light" traffic as well as many jewelry and electronic shops.
Captured in front of the Crown Plaza hotel built by Herman Bern on Avenida Manuel Espinosa. Located one block from Via España, the El Carmen church, and close to the University of Panama, this 2 lane street is one of the more narrow 2 lanes you will find in Panama City. Even on scooter, it's tough navigating through mid day traffic.
Video taken from the entrance to Ciudad de Saber (City of Knowledge) where many international organizations have their regional headquarters. USAID, COPA, Spanish Embassy, are just a few. Clayton is located in the reverted areas (areas revertidas) which were once considered the Panama Canal Zone. Running along side the road you will note the Miraflores Locks (background) and the railway for the Panama Canal Railway Company which takes commuters and containers to the Atlantic ports in the city of Colon.
A view of the city from Torre Generali in Obarrio. This video was taken from about the 25th floor, and sweeps towards San Francisco, Costa Del Este, Panama View, and the bay of Panama.
