Rogers to build banking headquarters in Mexico City

  • Comment

The BBVA Bancomer Tower will be built by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners in collaboration with Legorreta + Legoretta, announced the Spanish banking group

The new headquarters in Mexico City will have two buildings: the BBVA Bancomer Tower at the Paseo de la Reforma and the BBVA Bancomer Operating Centre at the Parques Polanco Complex.

The BBVA Bancomer Operating Centre will be built by architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM).

Rogers said: ‘We are thrilled by the opportunity to work for BBVA Bancomer on such a unique project for Mexico City and to collaborate with Legorreta + Legorreta, one of the world’s leading architectural practices.’

The façade of Rogers’ design draws upon Mexican architectural heritage and incorporates a reinterpretation of a traditional celosia screen.

The proposed building will accommodate 4,500 employees across 50 storeys. The 225 meter tall structure is scheduled for completion in 2012.

BBVA Bancomer anticipate the new headquarters will allow for savings of 25 per cent on energy and 30 to 50 per cent on water.

The unconventional design ‘creates a new hierarchy of vertical communities or “villages” with open areas where staff and visitors can meet and enjoy spectacular views across the city,’ said Rogers.
