Security on the Roof Top, Torre Mayor

The roof of the Torre Mayor has a helicopter landing pad for evacuation in case of emergency.

Like other buildings in Mexico City, the roof of the Torre Mayor has a helicopter landing pad for evacuation in case of emergency. During an earthquake, it can be easier to evacuate people from the top than at street level.
