Construction of the Gran Torre Santiago began in 2006, not long after the first time I went to Chile, but paused during the global recession of 2008. Though the mall at its base had opened in 2012, the tower had not been finished until much later, and only now, in August 2015, had its long awaited observation deck opened. I headed up for a visit. In daylight, the winter smog looked pretty ugly, but as night fell there was pretty awesome views.
