Arboleda, an urban mixed-use community now under development in Monterrey, Mexico, incorporates principles of sustainable design and green building and will be compliant with the LEED for Neighborhood Development standard. The development is designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects in collaboration with landscape design firm Office of James Burnett on behalf of Mexican developer One Development Group (ODG).
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 , 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.
