About Torre Libertad

Torre Libertad is on the Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City’s grand historic boulevard. Near Chapultapec Park on a stretch of the thoroughfare recently reinvigorated by new development, the building overlooks a prominent roundabout featuring the landmark Diana Fountain. In response to this historic site, the design of the tower is simple and sculptural. The tower is a curved, triangular form with a carefully proportioned curtain wall of clear glass and white aluminum sunshades. The corner facing the Diana Fountain features an undulating facet that catches the changing light while framing a view of the fountain. This facet tapers as it reaches toward the sky and curves outward as it approaches the ground, creating a canopy over the entry.

The tower houses the St. Regis Hotel, with 189 guest rooms, and the St. Regis Residences, with 100 apartments. The tower’s plan and structural system allow for generous layouts for each unit. Residents and visitors enter the ground-floor entrance into a lobby atrium. The hotel reception is on the fourth level, which opens onto a wide landscaped terrace.
