Gallery: Richard Meiers’ Prismatic Liberty Plaza Will Bring New LEED Co...

 
Elevations of the three towers.

Liberty Plaza is a series of three, fifteen-story buildings on a long narrow site, which is bordered by three avenues and the commercial district. Across the street is the nature reserve with views of the city, mountains and distant volcanos. Landscaping around the development including planting of native trees, ivy covered living walls, bamboo and permeable paving to help infiltrate water.

The buildings are envisioned as carved and shaped prisms with south facades expressed with external louvers to maximize energy efficiency. The louvers on the hotel are slightly different than those on the office buildings and have operable windows. Balconies and landscaped terraces and gardens climb the facade connecting guests visually with the nature reserve across the street. The project is expected to be one of the first LEED certified developments in Mexico City and will achieve sustainability by incorporating energy and water efficient systems to minimize consumption.
