Torre Mayor

Notable Building in Mexico City

The Torre Mayor stands like a sentinel before the gate to Bosque de Chapultepec. The green-glass tower soars 225m above the capital. The earthquake-resistant structure is anchored below by 98 seismic shock absorbers. Unfortunately, the building’s observation deck is permanently closed. It gave up its title of tallest building in Mexico City when taller Torre BBVA Bancomer and Torre Reforma were built.
