Torre Mayor

Architect: Zeidler Partnership Architects and Adamson Associates Architects

The tallest building in Latin America, Torre Mayor rises 738 feet above Mexico City's most important avenue, Paseo de la Reforma. Built by Toronto developer Paul Reichmann and inaugurated in 2003, it was downtown Mexico City's first important skyscraper since the devastating 1985 earthquake. The green-glass and stone tower features 98 mammoth shock absorbers to protect the structure from a temblor of up to 8.5 on the Richter scale.
