Torre Glorieta Uses Buzon Pedestals and Porcelain Pavers in its LEED Platium Certified Urban Regeneration Project
Soaring above the vibrant heart of Mexico City, close to the intersection between Avenida Insurgentes and Avenida Chapultepec, stands a recently-constructed tower building that is intended to serve as a driver of economic growth. The building is strategically located at a nerve centre and major transport hub of Mexico’s capital and stands out in particular for its iconic configuration and topography. Designed by Mexican architects Sholem and Yoram Cimet, Torre Glorieta 20 epitomizes the process of urban regeneration that has transformed Mexico’s capital after years of decay, finally enabling the area to fulfill its potential through targeted interventions and huge private and government investments. The tower rises 26 stories to a height of 118 meters and extends over a floor area of 60,000 square meters. It consists mainly of offices and has an eco-friendly architectural structure that attains excellent standards of energy saving, in particular the exacting requirements of LEED Platinum certification.
