Like most cities in Latin America, Buenos Aires architects and developers have been slow to embrace green building principles when designing new buildings. But a new AAA office tower is breaking from the pack and setting a new standard for sustainability in Buenos Aires.
Rising above the world-famous Avenida 9 de Julio, The Altman Eco Office (Lima 1111) is the first building in Argentina to achieve LEED Platinum Core & Shell Version 2009 pre-certification, industry recognition of the incorporation of regional materials and sustainable strategies during the entire construction process.
The Eco Office features a sleek aluminum and double glass curtain wall exterior; twelve levels with open, flexible floor plans; an 8th floor amenity level with fitness center and cafeteria; a 9th floor common terrace; a 13th floor common area for social events and four underground levels with 57 parking spaces. For commuters, the location is ideal at the intersection of Avenida 9 de Julio and Autopista 25 de Mayo meaning visitors can avoid the closed street chaos of the Microcentro.
A FIABCI Excellence Award recipient, Altman Eco Office will consume 50% less water and 28% less energy than the typical Buenos Aires office building thanks to recycled water, double glass, photovoltaic cells for energy production, solar panels for water heating and high-efficiency HVAC systems. The building also features designated parking areas for bicycles with private lockers and showers for cyclists…another important corporate nod to the Mejor en Bici network.
With flexible floor plans ranging from 241 to 413 m2, the Altman Eco Office is now available for occupancy. For more information, call 15.4444.4040 or complete the form below.
