Sanhattan

Sanhattan

Sanhattan (portmanteau of Santiago and Manhattan) is the unofficial name given to an area of commerce in northeastern Santiago, Chile with many new and expensive buildings housing offices, restaurants and hotels. Two new skyscrapers are being built: Titanium La Portada, which will be 192m tall, and the tallest building in South America, Torre Gran Costanera, at 300m tall. The area is located in the south bank of the Mapocho river and is shared mainly by the municipalities of Las Condes and Vitacura, and also partly by Providencia.

The name is rarely used by locals and many will not understand the reference.
