New Stories for an Old Newspaper

Torre La Nación Tower
Buenos Aires, Argentina

This highly visible project for Argentina’s national newspaper, La Nación, transformed the paper’s neglected, 1950s-era low-rise headquarters into a commercially viable, Class A office tower.

The project for La Nación added 16 floors to the building’s existing six-story structure without disrupting operations.

The requirement to reuse the existing foundation without modification meant building lightly and designing a steel transfer truss system on top of the base structure to distribute column loads.

HOK maximized the tenant views while honoring setback restrictions via a defining facade that bends backward at a graceful 10-degree arc. With flexible, deep floor plates, sweeping views, ample natural light and a distinguished identity, the building filled rapidly despite the challenging market.
