Miró Rivera Architects and Ibarra Aragón Arquitectura Design Monterrey Tower

Home & Garden

Torre Citica, a 25-story mixed-use development in downtown Monterrey, Mexico, is being designed collaboratively by Austin, Texas–based practice Miró Rivera Architects and locally based firm Ibarra Aragón Arquitectura. Slated for completion in December 2018, the project is set for installation over the city’s thoroughfare, Venustiano Carranza, which connects to the nearby municipality of San Pedro Garza García.

Designed to accommodate improve the pedestrian experience, the structure will be fixed atop a polygonal site with extended frontage. The first two floors will house a variety of dining and commercial spaces that will open to a public green space shaded by a network of steel tubing. A grand staircase will anchor one corner of the design to serve as a threshold between the street and onsite amenities. Two separate volumes will house eight floors of offices as well as 87 residences spread across nine floors. Vertical trellises along the facade will operate as solar screens.

Six levels of parking will be crafted the commercials spaces to deliver a framework to shoulder the hanging vegetation—a nod to the jungles of Central America. The framework will also link all three units of the structure.
