Text description provided by the architects. The aggregation of 6 lots with a potential for development gave rise to the proposal of a mixed-use urban complex: public parking, retail, offices and housing. The idea was to add new buildings to existing ones, and to develop housing projects near the residential area of colonia condesa, and commercial projects towards Insurgentes avenue -one of the most important avenues in Mexico City. Hence, access to housing units is always through the residential neighborhood, whereas access to the rest of the commercial and public programs is through Insurgentes avenue. Existing adjacent services, such as the Qi Center, designed by us, and El Molino pastry store, were taken into account, in designing a commercial and parking space that could function smoothly between them.

Amsterdam Tower is part of a mixed-use complex made up of two buildings facing Amsterdam street, and two buildings facing Insurgentes avenue, with a common plaza between them. By transfering rights, this merger allows us to reach a height of 19 stories, making this tower the tallest in this area of Insurgentes avenue. The tower will contain a parking lot in the first two floors, office space in floors 3, 4 and 5, and housing on the 6th floor and above. The apartments have been designed taking maximum advantage of orientation and views towards the south and the condesa.
