This Development in Yucatán Has Residents Seeing Green

2022 Best of Year Winner for On the Boards – Multiunit Residential

Located in Yucatán’s coastal capital, Mérida, the 122-unit condominium complex, slated to open August 2025, reinterprets the city’s history and culture through a contemporary lens. The eco-minded development by Pininfarina of America is made up of a pair of towers—15 and 17 stories, respectively, connected by a five-story base—that, thanks to stacked setbacks reminiscent of Mayan pyramids, create a “green valley” of lushly planted terraces between them. This vertical open-air core blurs the line separating the built environment from nature, providing each apartment with a generous outdoor space that represents up to 75 percent of the unit’s total square footage. Further promoting the “green lifestyle” concept, amenities will include a second-floor deck with alfresco gathering and coworking areas, plus a swimming pool.
