There is a clear trend in leading cities worldwide towards urban transformation that is above all the result of social and demographic evolution. Rural areas are becoming urban areas and the different sectors of the city undergo regeneration, reconciling densities and land uses to trigger development.
Sordo Madaleno has designed “Parque Toreo” as a mixed-use complex and a prime example of this phenomenon of urban transformation. The site is located in Naucalpan, State of Mexico, the most developed suburban area with significant commerce to the north of the Federal District. It measures 51,753.60 m2 and includes access to Periférico Norte, Av. Rio San Joaquín and Av. Parque de Chapultepec. It is currently under construction and the first stage will be completed in winter 2014.
“We believe that Parque Toreo, as a focal point of reorganization, it will trigger the recovery of the Toreo-Naucalpan corridor and of the Toreo-Reforma zone.” Javier Sordo Madaleno Bringas
From the start, the master plan was conceived as “a great park,” an urban space that comprehensively unites different uses. This park contains a shopping mall, auditorium, hotel and three corporate buildings for office use covering a total of 440,580 m2 of built area by the final stage.
