The Glorieta Insurgentes Tower stands as a landmark in Mexico City with an elegant and timeless design, which articulates Chapultepec Avenue with the Insurgentes Roundabout taking its semicircular shape & detonating it vertically to develop an office building of 26 levels above ground with a 393.70 ft height. The Tower has direct access to the public transportation hub connecting the plaza through a new pedestrian path underground, encouraging the use of public & alternative transport in a city where movement is a major issue.
The conception of the project included the principals of comfort and experience of the inhabitant, functionality, sustainability and energy efficiency with LEED Platinum Certification, transit-oriented development with TOD Standard Silver Certification, seismic resilience, construction quality, durable materials, and ease of maintenance.
The office slabs offer wide comfortable spaces that are surrounded by a double layer efficient low-e glass curtain wall allowing 360º panoramic city views and natural light. On the 8th and 10th floor there are landscaped roof gardens representing 20% of the plot area.
The Tower is a Smart Building with 57.9% in energy savings and up to 100% water savings during rainy season, due to a combination of design strategies & technologies which include: totally automated lighting & shading system with occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, dimming & scheduling through the entire building that calculates the optimal settings taking into account orientation conditions; efficient façade design with thermal gain blockage; air conditioning with a cost effective VRF System; roof solar panels producing approximately 50% of common space lighting; total water treatment including harvested rainwater & wastewater; a Building Management System to control access, fire detection, pumping systems, water treatment plants, energy sub-metering, making it a building with optimal operation with zero over cost; one of the Mexico’s most sustainable and energy efficient High Rises.
