SAO PAULO | WTorre JK | 34 Floors | 151m | 495ft | U/C

- In March 2007 a crane was assembled atop the building, the same month that construction resumed after several years on hold.
- The first project designed by Aflalo & Gasperini Arquitetos for Eletropaulo was modified by Arquitectonica when WTorre Empreendimentos bought the unfinished building from Eletropaulo.
- The total number of floors was increased from 32 to 35, but when construction resumed (in 2007) the top four floors were demolished, reducing the building height to 28 floors. Only then the 7 new floors were built.
- Four construction workers died on June 25, 2007 during the installation of a second construction crane atop the building.

This mixed-use development consists of three phases. The first phase of the project involves the design of the building facade and interiors for a 90.430 m² existing structure to be fitted out as an office tower, including floor plan layouts and interior design of lobbies and common area. This phase also includes the construction of six levels of underground parking with a total of 164.349 m².

Phase two involves the new construction of a 5-star hotel of 22.790 m², with 216 rooms and a new retail/entertainment center. The Shopping Center Iguatemi is an upscale mall with four levels, 6 movie theaters and an amphitheater. The shopping center will serve as a podium above which rises the hotel tower. A 59.615 m² bridge connects the second level with the phase 1 office building across the boulevard. The second phase also includes the construction of a new 17.375 m² office building.

The third phase of the development consists of building a virtual museum located on a skybridge connecting the mall and a site across the street adjacent to a park. Being renovated by the developr and donated to the city. The virtual museum will host exhibitions from major museum around the world. Total construction for phases one and two is 354.545 m²


The site for the complex is located at the intersections of Nacoes Unidas Avenue, Juscelino Kubitchek Avenue and Chedid Jafet Avenue, in Sao Paulo. This is one of the most prizes areas in the city. Included on the site is the most upscale store in Brazil, Daslu which is being incorporated into the complex.

This building was half built. They stoped in the late 80's!

So the city had this horrible structure for almost or more than 20 years!

Now it will be awesome

o topo "oco" rendeu vários metros a mais


Para ter uma noção da escala da obra, observem escavadeiras no fundo do buraco.
