Monterey, Mexico

The music of Mexican composer Agustín Lara informed master plan design for an undeveloped waterfront adjacent to the Santa Catarina River in downtown Monterrey. A desire for connectivity and an in-depth analysis of the context informed the creation of a series of cultural, retail, park and plaza spaces infused with installations of public art. These spaces collectively form a pedestrian corridor that links new development to the city’s existing urban fabric and ends at La Gran Plaza, or Macroplaza—the 7th largest plaza in the world.

On the site are plans for an office, residential, hotel and retail tower on a multi-level retail base and above a grand public plaza. Pocket plazas defined by varied uses such as retail, dining, office, art and greenspace come together to form a pedestrian corridor that links the tower to adjacent cultural venues. Green ‘sky gardens,’ placed across the building’s upper residential floors, open to surrounding neighborhoods and mountainous vistas.
