The Torre BBVA México, built and still widely referred to as the BBVA Bancomer Tower, was for but a moment the tallest building in the country. Finished late in 2015 it was officially opened in February of 2016. The Torre Reforma just across the street, opened within a few months, and was, alas, a few meters taller.
On Paseo de la Reforma in the western reaches of the Colonia Juárez, it’s directly in front of the Torre Mayor. At 235 meters up to the heliport, an extra 15 meters of antennas don’t actually add much to the official height. In fact, they’re decorative. The building is also almost connected at the ground level with Metro Chapultepec.
The building boasts some 60 stories at 4.30 meters each, and at 3.7 meters on the seven parking levels. The building’s total floor space is 185,000 square meters which is impressive considering that the entire site is but 11,000 square meters.
