The ceremony comemorating the laying the first concrete for Reforma 432, a planned 54 level tower, was recently held in Mexico City. Reforma 432 promises to be one of the most luxurious skyscrapers of all Mexico.

By uniting several lots of land into a single lot stretching from Reforma Avenue to Tokio Street - the project opens up the possibility of turning Manchester Street into a pedestrian walkway, and gives this side of the facade a singular urban quality.

The ground floor is reserved for access lobbies leading to the different uses of the tower. There is a lobby for the residential area and a large space for general access to the commercial, hotel and office areas. Besides these important access spaces, the ground floor also houses a large commercial area that extends towards the pedestrian walkway created on Manchester St. ending in Tokyo St.
Above the entry level, there are two levels of commercial space destined for luxury shops and restaurants, offering their services to the residents of the tower, as well as to the general public.

Seven levels of office space with their own parking follow the commercial floors. Above Level 10, there are four “technical” floors distributed throughout the building. These floors exist for structural reinforcement, mechanical rooms, and provide recreational areas for the residents, including a gym room and a games room.

Twenty-eight floors of residential space are distributed between Level 11 and 40. The tower is topped off by 11 floors reserved for the Buddha-Bar Hotel, including guest rooms, a technical floor, and a green terrace with a breathtaking view of the city.
