Description
- Architect: Office of Metropolitan Architecture (Rem Koolhass)
- Engineering: Arup
- Development: Grupo Danhos / Pontegadea
- Investment: 600MM USD

- After their successful project Reforma222, the developers try to have a new one, their choice was one of the most famous and recent Pritzker prize to create a great landmark, an iconic project who makes an improvement for the zone, the city and the architecture, the history and date of the project suggest the terms; An iconic design who takes unique elements of the ancient country┬┤s design, a monumental element pyramid-shaped but functional for the XXI century, a great tower who makes at the same time their own contribution to the celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the country. The place of the project -closer to the main forest of the city- makes the environment,a deteriorate old gasoline station converted to car-agency was the selection, but may be that was the worst choice, the inhabitants closer to the project takes furiously as a personal fight by their ignorance of the benefits of the project and their prejudices against towers. Meanwhile the project was announced by the city's government, but political adversaries takes it as a way of auto-promotion. The project has to be cancelled to have no good behavior around.

Replaced by the project Pedregal 24 (Corporativo Virreyes)
