Torre Reforma in Mexico City

Torre Reforma


Surrounded by some of the nation's most impressive monuments, the Paseo de la Reforma is undoubtedly Mexico City's spine, crossing through the heart of the 21-million-inhabitant metropolis. Ever since the municipality implemented a renewal scheme in 2003, the tree-lined street is in the midst of a major urban renaissance, with not only new gardens and trees sprouting along the arterial, but also several highrise office towers. In the Cuauhtémoc area, Fondo Hexa, S.A. de C.V. is currently erecting what has recently become Mexico's tallest edifice, the Torre Reforma.
Torre Reforma
The 246-metre tower, characterized by a diamond-shaped upper portion and concrete cladding on three of its facades, will eventually bring 45,000 square metres of leasable office space across 57 floors. Fourteen clusters of three floors each will enable future tenants to rent ample and continuous spaces at once, while the digital Hexa Concierge service will facilitate business operations such as the pre-registration of guests and the booking of the common areas.

Indeed, a series of public and private amenities throughout the building will anchor the Torre Reforma in its surroundings. At street level, a historic mansion was integrated into the project and transformed into a commercial destination connecting with the innovative Food Hall concept situated on the first underground level of the tower. Further up, a sky lobby comprising an auditorium with a 120-person capacity, meeting rooms rentable by the hour, reception halls for up to 200 people at a time, and a fully-equipped 2,500-square-metre gym conceived to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for the tower's employees.

The new skyscraper designed by LBR&A Architects is also a model of environmentally friendly architecture, a growing trend in the booming city. Targeting LEED Platinum certification, the southwest side of the highrise will be coated with a Duovent glass façade, consisting of two layers of glazing to improve the building's thermal and sound insulation. Finally, 80% of the materials used for the Torre Reforma's construction are produced locally, with 20% of them being recycled products.
