The Faro Monarca Tower stands 285 meters tall with 80 floors and an 850-car parking structure located 5 levels below-grade. The tower is a mixed-use building that includes offices, 200 hotel rooms, 400 condominium units and a convention center. Nearby the tower is a religious site with a chapel. The tower also includes direct access to the popular metro cable system.

Located in the foothills of Sabaneta, a suburb of Medellin, this structure stands to be not onlty the tallest building in Sabaneta, but in Latin America as well.

YAS Architecture has teamed with a local developer, a Colombian A/E team and has created a multi-disciplinary team specializing in tall structures to lead the design effort for this project.

Compared to the previous designs, I think that this is a really great design and really looks like it belongs in Colombia. What do you all think?



good thank you

the faro is awesome but it would be better to build it in CBD.
