Due to the redesign and recovery of the Historic Centre of Mexico City, Paseo de la Reforma, one of the most important avenues of the city, re-emerges as the most beautiful commercial, cultural and historic avenue of the metropolis. In recent years, distinct real estate property developments of exceptional importance and magnitude have been developed on this avenue. One of these new developments is the Plaza Residences building; an emblematic building.
The building is flanked by two cultural landmarks that enroot it with the historic past of the area, the Monument to Columbus and the Monument to the Revolution. The shape of the building gives richness and movement to the urban context. Plaza Residences becomes a sculpturesque object that acts as a showcase that defines the Monument to Columbus on one of the most sightly corners of Avenida Reforma.
In response to the Columbus traffic circle, the building, with its glass interior façade, is erected in the shape of a boomerang.
