Mítikah Tower

The Mítikah Tower is a mixed-use office and residential tower. It’s the tallest building in Mexico City at 267.3 meters tall with 68 floors. The building was begun in 2008, and with some interruptions, continued through completion in mid-2021.

Today the tower dominates San Sebastián Xoco, one of the original settlements of Benito Juárez. That statement alone begins to describe the controversy over the tower project. It was designed by the Pelli-Clarke-Pelli architecture studios. The same firm design the Torre Libertad/St. Regis Hotel & Residences and the Polanco Torres Gemelas, also in Mexico City. They’re likely most famous for the Twin Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The other office tower, at right in the photo above, is by architect Richard Meier, not without his own controversies.

Today, the Mítikah Tower complex includes a retail area. It’s sometimes called “the biggest shopping center in Mexico City.” Arranged onto five floors, it includes 280 separate retail spaces. Whether it’s reaching the projected 50 to 60,000 visitors a day has yet to be seen as the complex is still quite new.

Convenient to Metro Coyoacán, the complex is often a stop on a walking trip south to the Coyoacán Center. Even closer is the Cineteca Nacional, a true treasure for the neighborhood.
