Atlas Obscura BD Bacatá

Financed by 3,800 ordinary Colombians, the BD Bacatá was the world’s first crowdfunded skyscraper. Unfortunately, both the skyscraper and its financial backers have been left in limbo as Colombia’s tallest building waits for completion.

Great things were expected from the Bogotá Downtown Bacatá. Not only was it to become the tallest building in Colombia and the first skyscraper built in the country for 35 years, it was also going to be the world’s first crowdfunded skyscraper. Lofty goals indeed, but for now, at least, things are very much up in the air.
