Set to become an icon, Edificio Plaza Alemania is designed and built to exact standards unmatched in the capital city, marking a milestone in the country’s emergent international profile.
Sited on the Rambla, Montevideo’s distinctive shoreline promenade and greenway, the Class A building features floor-to-floor heights of 3.5 meters and the highest standards of construction, finishes, equipment, and amenities. The facade’s fritted glass fins passively shade the floor-to-floor, low-energy, triple-laminated unitized glazing panels to dramatically reduce energy consumption. The building’s compact core, post-tensioned floor slab construction and efficient structural load distribution enable generous, extremely flexible floor plate dimensions, at least 2.8 meters clear from finished floor to finished ceiling, and full-height windows that bring in natural light and beauty.
Edificio Plaza Alemania meets the new and evolving demands of the modern workplace by providing a thoughtful package of amenities and services that creates value for forward-thinking tenants. These amenities include a generous lobby with co-working space, café / bar, sky lounge, showers, lockers, bicycle storage, integrated public plaza, and valet parking.
Edificio Plaza Alemania’s total area of 13,390 square meters occupies the western portion of a new municipal public plaza that is also designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects. The Plaza Alemania not only provides a manicured green space that frames the experience of the building and its occupants, but also ensures that no other building will ever block its views along the Rambla, towards the city, or out to the water.
The project is designed to meet the latest international standards for construction, fire safety, resiliency, and environmental sustainability (LEED Gold certification).
