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.
