here are the renders by S.O.M. proposal













BBVA Bancomer Operations Center

Mexico City, Mexico

The design for the Operation Center Building is the result of an award winning competition entry. The project, part of a planned development within a dense urban setting, relates to its residential surrounding context through massing and scale. The project is conceived as a bundle of vertical volumes shifted at their intersections to create points of articulation – gardens. The building’s lively tectonic character establishes a sense of scale and visual dynamism that will contribute to the area’s pedestrian character and will create an interior environment conducive to productivity. Targeting LEED Silver certification, the project optimizes building efficiency and promotes a healthy interior environment. The project’s sophisticated glass façade is wrapped by a screen of vertical staggered louvers that are calibrated to the angle of the sun in order to reduce solar heat gain while maximizing views and filtering daylight. The project will promote environmental sustainability throughout its structure, as well as energy- and water-saving features integrated within the design.

Project Facts

Site Area: 4,660 m2
Project Area: 160,000 m2

that's part of a separate project, it's also under construction already, but this one is at Polanco not Reforma. I'll bring construction updates in a bit, but like i said, that's a separete project

Thank you, even though I don't post as much in the Guadalajara section, I enjoy your great updates of Puerta de Hierro, you take really good pictures.

That separate section of the building i believe runs through the entire height of it. If i'm right, those are the emergency stairs. Many buildings in Mexico city use similar systems to incorporate these stairs, sort of like sometimes is done in New York.
