While in the center and north of the country skyscrapers are a common sight, as in Mexico City and Monterrey, in the southeast there are still no high-rise buildings. But that's about to change.
In Mérida, Yucatán, called "The Sky," a landmark new project will be built, rising to a height of 160 meters, with the aim of housing offices, clinics and department stores. It will be ready in 2023, but the pre-sale of its spaces began in 2020, during the pandemic.
It will be developed by SkyCapital, which has other properties in the state, such as SkyPark and SkyWork.
The tower is estimated to reach 39 or 40 stories, which will include a rooftop terrace, a rooftop restaurant, meeting space, a wellness center, and six stories of parking infrastructure.
It also is planned to include Building Management System (BMS) technology, fire fighting systems, access control, voice and data, and a water source heat pump HVAC system, among other systems.
Arup will be the main engineer. The company is also working on the final stage of the Sagrada Familia in Spain.
The skyscraper will be developed on an area of 10,456 square meters, 35,000 square meters designated for offices and clinics, 300 for commercial areas, and 2,500 square meters for restaurants. The project will have 20 elevators.
