MONTERREY | Synchronicity | 160m | 40 fl | Canceled

Monterrey, México

Synchronicity is a mixed-use development, and the second project being developed in a joint venture partnership between Orange Investments and CIM Group, Inc. (Los Angeles, California). In December 2007 the Venture acquired its first parcel for the development of 70,000 mixed-use meters, to begin construction in the first quarter of 2008.

In December 2007 a sought after 2.8-acre parcel was made available to Orange in an off market transaction. Because of Orange’s close ties with the land owner, and previous experience with projects in the submarket (Aqua Condominiums, and Connexity mixed-use development) Orange was chosen over other highly motivated buyers. On March 5, 2008 the Orange and CIM closed their purchase on the land.

The Synchronicity mixed-use development, as currently envisioned, will consist of approximately 36,000 net sellable meters directly adjacent to the recently completed Aqua Condominiums (90 units) and Connexity, a 15,000 square meter development that began construction in the 4th quarter of 2007

It was designed by Michel Rojkind, although it looks kinda Frank Gehryish.

why not? if you live inside, you don't see the building itself.



I would not like to live in one of the cubes sticking out of the facade though - or maybe, I would? I haven't decided yet ....

I'd love to live in one of those cubes, specially when you'll probably have the Sierra Madre Mountains' view just right outside your window



Here's some more information about the architect
Michel Rojkind,

Synchronicity to grace the Monterrey skyline

Tuesday, June 17, 2008
By Matt Garcia

Monterrey, Mexico (NCS) - Monterrey, Mexico has always been considered the most industrial city in that nation, and one of the most progressive towns in Latin America. Located in the northeastern part of the country, Monterrey more closely resembles a city in the American Southwest than one in Mexico.

With a solid and modern infrastructure and a high quality of life, Monterrey has evolved into an economic powerhouse. However, as recently as 1969, the tallest building in Monterrey was only a 30-story high-rise known as Edificio Latino. At 308 feet (94 meters), the height of the small tower was nothing to brag about and the city’s skyline remained flat for many years. But that all began to change in 1994 with the construction of the 420-foot (128 meters) Torre Comercial America, an office building located in the suburb of Valle Oriente, in the municipality of San Pedro Garza Garcia, which is an upscale community situated only a few minutes away from downtown Monterrey.

Resto de la historia

Al proposito, de acuerdo al articulo, la torre va a tener 39 pisos y va a medir 140 metros, no 160. ¿De que fuente sacaron los 160 metros?

Nice article!... Thanx for posting it Italocittadino!

I love this tower´s design, definitively one of my favorites, and according to the article, they seem to have changed the location, now we may see something like this in a near future:

More news of Synchronicity...

Synchronicity to grace the Monterrey skyline



Tuesday, June 17, 2008
By Matt Garcia

Monterrey, Mexico (NCS) - Monterrey, Mexico has always been considered the most industrial city in that nation, and one of the most progressive towns in Latin America. Located in the northeastern part of the country, Monterrey more closely resembles a city in the American Southwest than one in Mexico.

Six years later, a taller structure would be built; the 43-story, 548-foot (167 meters) CNCI Tower. The CNCI Tower was built next to theTorre Comercial America, creating the first real cluster of buildings in the city. Since then, a number of proposals for high profile buildings have been landing on the local city council’s desk, including proposals for the Torre 40, a 48-story, 590-foot (180 meters) tower designed by American architecture firm HOK, and the Torre Fundadores, a 70-story, 951-foot (290 meters) structure designed by Mexican architect Enrique Norten, recipient of the 1998 Mies van der Rohe Award.

The latest of these proposals is a 39-story building designed by Michel Rojkind of Rojkind Architectos, a Mexico City-based architecture firm known for its innovative style and forward thinking. Synchronicity, as the project is entitled, is a 459-foot (140 meters) mixed-use tower, being developed by a joint venture between CIM Group and Orange Investments. The structure will consist of residential, commercial and retail space including such amenities as a gymnasium, restaurant and swimming pool. The building will also be located in the Valle Oriente neighborhood, not far from the existing Torre Comercial America, CNCI Tower, and the proposed Torre 40 and Fundadores towers.

The design of the tower is made up of several cubes stacked on top of each other, creating an irregular Lego-like structure. The façades are a combination of white concrete and square-shaped glass windows. If built, Synchronicity will bring a new style in architecture to the city; a more creative, original and unique design that breaks away from the more conservative architectural approaches currently found in Monterrey.
