The Constitución 999 Tower in Downtown Mexico

Based in Mexcio City, Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos was founded in 1973 by Juan Sordo Madaleno, who has been honoured the architecture studio’s winning design for the 227m Monterrey’s high skyscraper tower in downtown Mexico.

The architect was tasked to develop the Constitución 999 tower along Constitución Avenue in the Mexican city’s downtown area. Completed in 2017, the building comprised of stepped roof gardens, sports facilities, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, and a fitness centre.

“Integration, appropriation and revitalisaton are the three factors that became the design bases of the winning project,” said Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos.

As part of the design architecture, the stepped roof gardens has risen around the latticed glass skyscraper in this mixed-use complex. What’s striking about this building is its “diamond-patterned” facade that made up the main structure with tall glass windows.

The full height of the tower will offer views from the top of skyscrapers, including views of all surrounding buildings. The location of the tower takes centrestage and it is also the point of convergence of the other four plazas.
