Ice Tower was a supertall skyscraper project in Avenida Balboa, Panama City, Panama, which was cancelled in 2007. The planned height of the building was 381 meters (1,250 feet), which would have 104 floors, increased from the original proposal of 80 floors .[2][3]

In March 2007, excavations began for the construction of the foundation of the building. However, three months later, in June 2007, the project was cancelled.[4] Ice is the third cancelled supertall skyscraper project in Panama City after the Torre Generali (cancelled in 2001) and the Palacio de la Bahía.[5]
