Just south of Bellas Artes is the Torre Latinoamericano, one of the cities tallest buildings. In fact, until recently it was the tallest buildin in all of Latin America, but it no longer holds that distinction. On my first evening in town, I decided to gain some perspective of the city by visiting the observation deck of this glass and steel skyscraper. It costs 40 pesos to visit and you'll get off a few floors beneath the actual observation deck in the gift shop and snack bar area. There's another elevator from there that takes you up to the observation deck where the views out over the sprawling city are very thorough. However, I didn't find Mexico City to be especially beautiful from on high. Some cities are majical from on high (New York, Rio, etc) and others just need to be seen from street level to truly appreciate.
