Rio de Janeiro: The construction of Rio Towers, designed to be the largest office building in Rio, finally started, almost two years later than the initial estimative.
Located in a 8550 sqm lot, the building with more than 100000 sqm of rentable area will be the largest in Rio de Janeiro.
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Aflalo e Gasperini Arquitetos Associados, the building will feature a glass curtain wall and granite facade, as well as two helipads (one for each phase of the building).
The building will be built in two phases, the first phase is scheduled to end by 2008.
