Desos Mexico, a new urban center for the Santa Fe District in Mexico City, will be a mixed use development containing class A Office space, Luxury Residential Condominiums, Specialty Retail, Spa and Fitness Center, a Theater, and, a Gran Turismo Hotel. The cornerstone of the development will be “Torre Mexico – Popocatepetl”, a 50-story mixed tower (hotel, office, retail) containing over one millions square feet of program.
The 25 acre site is divided into three sensible precincts in order to promote a lively and live-able lifestyle in an emerging region of Mexico City. As such, the framework plan (“Spin Concept”) promotes a grand boulevard (“Paseo Libertad”) juxtaposed against the National Park to the south, and the carefully arranged building program to the north. Given the property is located at the far southeast end of the Santa Fe valley, and the major feature / geological features is to the north, Popocatepetl (volcano), through-vistas between buildings becomes a spatial determinant similar to block morphology.
