LALO is part of the Ocampo Movement (MOCA), an integral plan with the goal of reviving Monterrey city center. This project was conceptualized to be the city’s new icon on Av. Morones Prieto.
LALO comes from the concept of creating a new sense of belonging for neighborhood life in the Loma Larga area.
This project is a development that includes apartments, a hotel, and commercial spaces in a 42-floor tower, in addition to underground parking and an annexed parking module. The building faces the north and south, which is why we decided to give a subtle curvature to the envelope with the goal of maximizing the perimeter and the number of apartments per floor.
The commercial area houses 39 stores on 3 floors. Terraces connect to the stores in order to create a more attractive experience for the visitor.
The hotel runs from floor 4 to 15 of the tower. The hotel amenities, meeting rooms, a restaurant, and gym, are on floor 4.
The multi-family component includes 286 units, divided in 7 types of apartments that meet market-identified demands. The distribution scheme of the apartments consists of a central hallway that divides the units with the view toward the north from those that face south. Each floor has 11 apartments with service areas located at the far ends.
The amenities are distributed into two parts: on the 8th floor we included exterior areas for social gatherings. On the 16th floor of the lower, there are spaces for indoor activities.
