From the architects. The site is located in the north of the city of Cuernavaca, enjoying the best climate in the city. The Tlaltenango colony enjoys excellent location and history, and is now a central point of connection with the city of Cuernavaca and its greater area. Nuevo Tabachin Street is a midpoint of the neighborhood within a canyon with little topography, the perfect place to lay low and to have a better lifestyle.
Nueva Tabachin is a concept of contemporary-sustainable lifestyle integrated into a new way of life in cities. The infrastructure that NT integrates in a short, medium and long term, will give its residents the quality and comfort required in a city with so much diversity and prosperity.
The development has 24 loft apartments with leisure features and privileges that many people in Cuernavaca wish for in the future. With a pool, spa, steam room, multipurpose room and communal garden area, this concept lies within the first of its kind for water recycling, collection and cleaning for local use and irrigation.
The energy efficiency is based on international specifications, which add value to the development with state of the art technology and passive design in its architecture.
NT adapts to the new lifestyle of cities in which both exercise their profession independently and the atmosphere is socially stable, young and fresh coexisting with the environment and fully enjoying the services offered.
The site contains vegetation that will be respected in accordance with the relevant regulations; thus the vegetation will not be diminished. On the contrary, we propose to integrate it into the design and make the most of it. We will implement the necessary downspouts and the sewage treatment plant for water reuse in irrigation of green areas, car wash and toilets.
The apartments are arranged so as to have the greatest amount of natural lighting and ventilation, to optimize power savings.
The project is designed with internal growth, which few developments consider in their added value, as well as its pre-programming, giving an extra value to the whole project, as well as a process of growth coupled with the manual re-densification of the project.
