From Dezeen.

R432 by Rojkind Arquitectos.

This skyscraper by Mexican studio Rojkind Arquitectos is about to commence construction in Mexico City.

Called R432, the project unites 12 plots of land and will extend 52 floors into the air.

The first three floors will accommodate restaurants and shops, with residential apartments above them on 35 storeys.

The tower will also include leisure facilities for inhabitants and a hotel at the summit.

The interior will be divided into 70 square metre units that can be joined horizontally or vertically to create differently-shaped living units.

Rojkind Arquitectos getting ready to break ground for a new High-Rise in Mexico City’s prestigious Reforma Avenue.

Reforma Avenue has been one of Mexico City’s main avenues since the second half of the 19th century, and is one of the most important avenues and city hallmarks due to its symbolic value and urban quality.

R432, on Reforma Avenue, has achieved the best construction conditions for its type of building. It is a project that fully embraces its urban condition. The building opens up to the street, and the street, fully guaranteeing safety, comfort and privacy enters into the building.

By uniting 12 lots of land we have a single lot stretching from Reforma Avenue, to Tokio Street, opening up the possibility of turning Manchester Street into a pedestrian walkway, giving the side facade a singular urban quality.

Of the 52 floors of R432, the first 3 are reserved for commerce and luxurious restaurants, offering their services to the occupants living on the higher levels of the tower while connecting them with the city, rich with experiences of an urban environment.

In total, five floors will be dedicated for parking and 35 for housing. There will also be floors dedicated to technical operations as well as recreation and entertainment of the inhabitants, including a gym, play area, swimming pool, massage area and jogging track.

The top 9 levels of the tower will host the Buddha Bar Hotel, which promises to be one of the city’s most enviable locations, enriching the lifestyle of the tower’s inhabitants.

This skyscraper doesn’t just multiply the base area by its number of floors; it also intensifies the potential for the use of the building. The greatest challenge is not just to pile one floor on top of the other, but rather to imply them with one another, or better yet, to complicate them into each other.

The tower is divided into blocks or zones, that are identified by a theme or rather by an ambiance based on Gaston Bachelard’s Imagination of Matter; each of them implying colors, textures, smells and sounds. Starting from the ground up; Earth, Stone, Metal, Crystal, Water, Rain, Seeds, Plants, and Fire.

Starting from the basic 70 square meter unit that is generated by the structure of the tower, the housing elements can be made by combining two, three or more of these units; horizontally, vertically or in a combination of both, allowing for different spatial and functional configurations.

Your home can occupy several levels and enjoy different views, creating a unique combination that will set it apart from the rest.

I like the idea of customizable units for the apartments. Never done before in a tower.

Umm.. it looks okay but if that is how it will look in real life, then Mexico City better get a new design. I hope it's one of those things where the renders look like shit but the actual building looks amazing because those renders look wannabe visionary to me. I understand that most Mexicans here love it and they should cause it's in their country, but my non-native commentary is a little less biased IMO.

This will definitely stick out when it's made, now if only I could afford an apartment in it. Love the idea of customizable floors, and with so much glass I wonder if they'll use solar panels to power the thing.

It just screams eco-friendly building to me.

It should be moved to prep. They are clearing the site now. This is really an excellent building. I personally think that it could turn out better than Torre Reforma.
