Torre Altus



The Torre Altus was built between 1994 and 1998. It was for some years the tallest residential building in Latin America. The project of architects Augusto H. Álvarez and Adolfo Weichers, it stands today at 174 meters with 47 floors. Augusto Harold Álvarez (1914-1995) was a student of José Villagrán García and he’s best remembered for his work on the Torre Latinoamericana.

Though the is way off the tourist circuit, it’s so tall that it’s often inquired about. As it is, it’s simply a very prominent building in a distant and exclusive neighborhood.

The tower is served by 11 elevators and each floor has an average floor area of 611 square meters bringing the building total to some 61,000 square meters. The building has survived some seven strong earthquakes, built atop 100 concrete piles drilled to 25 meters.

Residents enjoy a private party room, gym, spa, swimming pool, heliport, and more. Now approaching 25 years of history, it looks out on the Santa Fe and Lomas areas and a landscape that has changed dramatically.
