McBains Cooper México consolidates its presence in the region
McBains Cooper Mexico’s team was actively involved in a series of Sustainability workshops organized by Prudential and AECOM on 16 February in Mexico City. The workshops were attended by renowned professionals such as Claire Bonham-Carter, AECOM’s Director of Sustainability and Sustainability Expert Mauritius Athie, from the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
In these images, we can see Felix Cañez, from our Mexican office, defending and leading the arguments on behalf of our team in an interesting (and sometimes heated) debate about the rationale for the selection of one of the proposed sites.
McBains Cooper Mexico continues to consolidate its presence in the region, leading some of the most important projects, by size and reputation, in that country such as the Mitikah tower in Mexico City and the development of a new city in the middle of the desert, in the border with the United States.
With over 60 stories high, Mitikah is one of the tallest buildings in Mexico (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:Rascacielos_en_Latinoam%C3%A9rica) and one of the highest in Latin America. This development, which may become an icon for Mexico City, was designed by Cesar Pelli, known for its tall buildings and responsible for the Petronas Towers, the World Financial Centre, Bank of America Corporate Center in New York and La Torre de Cristal in Madrid, among others.
The San Agustín project is effectively the creation of a new city in a 900- hectares in the middle of the desert in the state of Chihuahua. New infrastructure such as water and electricity provision, roads and drainage for the new city will be provided which will include an industrial park, housing and hospitals among others, in one of the largest and most exciting projects in Mexico
