The Torre Libertad is known to most Mexico City residents as the St. Regis Hotel. On the Glorieta of Diana the Huntress, one of ten along the Paseo de la Reforma, it’s a landmark skyscraper perhaps even more so for the weight of the others on the other end of the same block.

The building went up between November 2004 and January 2008. It officially opened in June of 2008. With a commercial area on the 3rd floor, there are seven levels of underground parking.

The architect was César Pelli of Argentina. He’s best known for his work on the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. In Mexico City, he also designed the Residencial del Bosque 1 & 2 in Polanco and the Coca Cola Building.

The building is 150.1 meters tall and has 32 floors. It stands on 200 concrete and steel piles that penetrate to a depth of 60 meters. The tower can theoretically withstand an earthquake of 9.0 on the Richter scale.

There are only thirteen St. Regis Hotel & Residences in the world.  For some international guests it will be a thrilling place to stay. For most Mexico City residents, the Torre Libertad is a bright shiny point on the skyline. It’s also a very well-known landmark on the Paseo de la Reforma.
