Case Study

Jajalpa Office Park One-of-a-Kind Sustainable Office Park Brings New Energy to Mexico City

Ocoyoacac, Mexico

The Challenge

To create a unique commercial office park that stands out from other offerings around Mexico City.

The Design Solution

Defined by surrounding green spaces and water features, a manicured park serves as the building’s main entrance and offices will look out over the tree tops and toward the nearby mountains. More than 80 percent of the building’s materials are sourced from local suppliers and 90 percent of the water is reused on-site for irrigation and other needs. A concrete and glass skybridge will connect the first phase of Jajalpa to the office park’s future buildings. The building’s location, efficient floor plan and commercial services differentiate it from other real estate offerings throughout the Mexico City region. A feature staircase encourages users to be more active while also providing illumination for the park at night. The park, dining and retail amenities encourage community engagement, while also providing space for local commerce to develop.

The Design Impact

Jajalpa Office Park is a low-impact, commercial building that offers quality experiences for the user through its design, which combines natural lighting, ventilation, green and open spaces, and sustainability. Expected to open in 2019, the project is seeking LEED Gold certification and its concept makes it one of a kind in the Mexico City area.
