ODG is constructing Arboleda (Spanish for “grove”) in the prosperous San Pedro Garza Garcia suburban municipality in the southwest area of the Monterrey metropolitan area. Monterrey, Mexico’s third-largest city, is capital to the northeastern state of Nuevo León.

According to Pelli Clarke Pelli [9], the 26-acre Arboleda site will include residential and commercial development centered around a large central park and incorporating generous green space and native plantings. All buildings will be LEED certified.
