Arcos Bosques Torre I or Arcos Bosques Corporativo Marco I and Torre II

Teodoro González de León
1996; 2008

Paseo Arcos Bosques is one of the most exclusive shopping centers in Mexico City. These two skyscrapers, Arcos Bosques, house offices and shopping areas to the Santa Fe business district. Torre I was originally the tallest building in Mexico City. However, now this first, known whimsically as El Pantalón, is surpassed in height by a number of other buildings in Mexico City. Still, Torre I, is a remarkable building, 530 feet tall, with two parallel towers of 31 stories, joined at the top with a lintel of sorts of an additional four floors. Its neighbor, Torre II, has 34 stories, is about the same height, and includes a five-star hotel.
