San Pedro Garza Garcia, Monterrey, Mexico
26 acres / 11 hectares
Arboleda will be a premier mixed-use development in San Pedro Garza Garcia, one of Latin America’s most prosperous suburbs and an important corporate center. The master plan, a collaboration of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and the Office of James Burnett, will create a new urban village on a 10.5-hectare (26-acre) site next to the Club Campestre Monterrey golf course with views of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
The development will include a vibrant commercial zone and a secure, private residential area, both organized around a central park. Called The Leaf, the park takes its name and elliptical plan from the leaf of the live oak tree, a variety found on the property.
Arboleda will offer an array of living options. In the residential area, residents will live in three towers and 35 smaller-scale urban villas. Two midrise apartment buildings will offer another option in the commercial district. This lively, walkable neighborhood for business and entertainment will also include office towers, shops, restaurants, a hotel, and a cultural center. The cultural center will link the commercial and residential zones and will be an amenity for all of San Pedro Garza Garcia.
Arboleda will be compliant with LEED for Neighborhood Development, a system of design that integrates the principles of smart growth, urbanism, and green building. In addition, the buildings will be LEED certified.
