CONTAGEM | Via Expressa Complex | 171m | 40 fl x 2 | 104m | 30 fl | Pro

With an area of 368,870 m², the Via Expressa Complex is one of the biggest developments in the history of the Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte, one of the most populous metro areas in Americas. The land where the complex will be built mixed use is on the banks of the Via Expressa (Expressway) of Contagem, Água Branca neighborhood, where it worked an old water park.

The two glazed towers promise to impact with a hint of floating floors without visible pillars and huge spans. The project is in the proposal stage and is awaiting approval of the Municipality of the city of Contagem and environmental agencies. Architecture was developed by FarkasVolGyi last year and hired by Multipar Group, which is the same behind the hotel Golden Tulip Belo Horizonte, which should be ready by the 2014 World Cup.

The project of Via Expressa Complex is developed by FarKasVölGyi Architecture Company. All images below belongs to that company for reserved rights.

To support larger spans, the two tallest towers in metal frame will use the concept x-bracing, cross-linked steel, similar to what occurs with the Renaissance Tower in Dallas and the John Hancock Center, located in Chicago.

This project lacks soul. It's too clean and sterile.

REPORT

A deficit club controlled by an association of firefighters and more one flat land totally free, both with roughly the same size. It is in these two areas, on the banks of the railway and expressway, which is being designed the building complex of Contagem. It's what I could see visiting the place this month.

The two towers of 171 meters (About 561 feet) and 40 floors and over other 30 floors are designed to be built on the land of the club. The three towers of 28 storeys and three 23-floor towers are planned to be built on the land vacated today.

So far, the two towers of 40 floors of the Via Expressa Complex will be the second and third tallest buildings in the brazilian state of Minas Gerais, and it's been losing only to the commercial tower of 85 floors Andradas Complex, taking into account buildings under status of projected, approved, under construction or completed.

According to the administration of the firemen’s association, Ascobom, there are comments about a possible change from the place. The fact is that the Acquaplay club is today restricted to members of categories such as firefighters, police and military association itself. It is not a water park, which has a strong marketing can attract not only local visitors, but also as visitors of other cities. The movement at the club was very low in extended weekend of easter, for example.

The conservation of the club is also not the best. Dirty and dusty in external areas, no pedestrian control in the ordinance, defaced walls, old facilities, internal space barely tapped with large empty points, among others.

A positive point is that unlike Andradas Complex, no illegal occupation of land and residents in nearby Via Expressa Complex. To make the project feasible, simply the Multipar Group must acquire the two lands according to Roberto Justus, Multipar executive member*, that are available in the documentations.

The subway station Novo Eldorado, a expansion project planned to be built by Metrominas** will be nearby the Via Expressa Complex. The subway station is important, as will create synergy with the complex for purposes of economic feasibility of the project.

The renders are pretty bad, though.
