Corporativo Neuchatel sets a new standard for Class A commercial office spaces in Mexico City. Developed by global real estate firms Hines and Ivanhoé Cambridge, it includes the city’s first truly high-performance office tower.
With a prime location in Nuevo Polanco’s premier mixed-use development, the 19-story building features exceptional amenities and flexible 24,200-sq.-ft. floor plates designed to maximize daylight and city views. Tenants enjoy convenient access to nearby restaurants, services, cultural centers and museums in Polanco, one of Mexico City’s most desirable neighborhoods.
HOK’s design establishes a striking entrance to the development, featuring an angled northern facade and massing that align with the plot’s geometry. Sculpted corners accentuate the tower’s gateway presence, improve views and integrate it into the urban landscape. The main facades have slightly reflective floor-to-ceiling glass and vertical accent fins for shade and texture. Non-reflective, transparent glass on the corners further enhances the gateway aesthetic.
The site design prioritizes pedestrian connectivity and inclusive, functional public spaces. A pedestrian green space runs east to west, offering a series of lush courtyards and patios for respite from the busy city. A tree-lined north-south boulevard connects the tower to the dense Polanco neighborhood to the south.
A new public plaza, inspired by Mexico City’s historical traditions and Polanco’s rich artistic heritage, lies at the intersection of these pedestrian paths. Elegant shell-shaped pods provide versatile outdoor spaces for events, performances, vendors, rotating art installations and a dedicated children’s play area. Integrated lighting ensures safety and activity during evening hours, with the Eye of Mexico—a large digital art sculpture designed by art collectives Ouchh and MASSIVArt—serving as the central civic feature. This sculpture presents urban and mobility data for Mexico City via interactive light displays, with vivid colors and a reflecting pool at its base, creating a captivating nighttime destination.
The tower’s two-story, permeable base seamlessly integrates public spaces with an exterior garden, creating a hospitality-inspired lobby for work, conversation and relaxation. This versatile lobby is a dynamic, mixed-use space that transforms from daytime to nighttime, featuring a café/bar and a library/lounge. Expansive glass folding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows foster a strong connection between the outdoor spaces and the surrounding community.
Premium building amenities include a fitness and wellness center, a fully staffed conference center, coworking space, bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging stations. The design enhances pedestrian connectivity by locating parking underground.
