Costanera Center is an ongoing development and construction of four skyscrapers being built in the Central Business District of Santiago, Chile. The tallest of the four buildings Torre Gran Costanera, designed by César Pelli, will be 300 meters in height,[1] making it the tallest building when completed in South America and second tallest in the Southern Hemisphere behind only Australia's Q1 on the Gold Coast at 322 m tall. The other three buildings will be shorter.

The tower will feature two hypermarkets: Santa Isabel and Jumbo, a six floor mall with more than 200 stores, a food court with a panoramic view with space for more than 2,000 people and two hotels, one with four stars and the other with five stars.

Construction was put on hold in January 2009 as a consequence of the late 2000s recession, as the developers were concerned that they would not be able to find tenants if completed by the originally proposed date.[2] After the recession was reaching to its end, Cencosud announced the construction will be resumed in December 16, 2009.
