This proyect will begin in 2016 in the first half of the year. Its programed to be completed on 2018 ,first months , for the height this would require 2 years, although as I have said before... I highly doubt that 330 meters would be the final height. Look the other tower on construction here in MTY, KOI, it started as 220 m and its being constructed now for 279m... inverstors always do that in this part of the world.

And the investor of this project plans to build LatAm tallest, as new taller supertalls have been announced in Mexico City then theres a chance that they will increase this tower's height

Monterrey Set for Supertall



Monterrey, Mexico – 03 March 2015
Facebook Facebook Tweet Twitter E-mail Email Print Print
Torre Insignia is a new supertall skyscraper proposed for the Mexican city of Monterrey. If built, it will rise to a height of 330 meters.

Developed by GIM and designed by HKS, the scheme is to be the anchor landmark for Del Valle City, a mixed use master plan for the New Leon area.

The extreme height of the scheme is inspired by the famous mountains around Monterrey that dominate its backdrop. The design of the tower tapers to a narrow peak of extruding façade elements, which will be topped with rotating observation levels and a 30-meter-tall mast, something rarely seen in the days of sleek and aerodynamic supertalls. On the corners of the building, the cladding peels away, revealing recessed sky terraces that grow larger as the tower shrinks.

The tower would contain a luxury hotel with 300 rooms, 180 apartments, 18,000 square meters of grade-A office space, plus cultural facilities and retail that would be integrated with the surrounding landscaped area.

If the tower is completed before the Tower at Isla de Marchi, a proposed 335-meter tower in Argentina, Torre Insignia would be the tallest building in Latin America. It is still too early in the planning phases for both projects to accurately predict construction timelines.
Reminds like the Lotte tower in Seoul!

Building height in America is not determined by the developers' desires, but by a cost analysis. Monterrey can't have a 400+ m tower right now. Maybe Mexico City, and even that is unlikely in the next 3-6 years. Good luck!

Por lo pronto Monterrey tendrá una de más de 270 m. Tal vez la Ciudad de México será la siguiente en los próximos 2-4 años.

Monterrey has never been particularly poor. It just has a horrible income distribution, almost as bad as in the US.

I agree. Mexico is not a poor country at all. There is a lot of wealth. For Americans to understand the situation, the problem with Mexico is that it's wealth inequality has been for decades what the US is increasingly turning into in the past few years. More wealth going to a handful of people. Mexico seems to be improving in that aspect and increasing it's middle class finally.

This statement is completely stupid and pointless with all due respect.

Of course Cost Analysis is part of the equation. An then again we all know Mexico City has a lot of wealth and income power. But Monterrey, on particular the San Pedro Garza Garcia county, has an income parity and per capita GDP a lot higher than Houston for example. And we are talking about more than 100,000 citizens just in this county.

I see appartments here going at 1 and even 2 MM USD like we never saw it 2 years ago. Sum to all this the fact that the soil in Monterrey is ideal for supertalls since is not a sismic zone as Mexico City (Cost equation again) and that the energetic reform in Mexico, actually holds Monterrey in the richest Gas and Oil reserves and in a quite strategic geographical position... ( less than 2 hours from Texas)... and then you'll see that if is not Insignia, in less than 2 years we will have the first 400+ in this city , an probably in Latin America.

Although I do think this will be much more higher than the already stated 330 mts... we see this with all towers here... they increase their height at least from 10 to 15%.
