Consultatio ended its emblematic tower: Catalinas Norte
The company officially presented its AAA office project, of which 23 floors (34,000m2) were sold to Banco Francés in 2013 for 1.2 billion pesos. Consultatio kept 10,000 meters (7 floors) and will be moving its main office to the new tower in August.
The project is located on the last available site of the Catalinas area in Retiro, at Puerto Madero northern entrance, the political and financial city hub. On a base of almost 6,000 m2, it has a total surface of 76,000 m2 distributed in 33 floors. It is the area’s tallest tower with the largest surface per plant (1,760 m2). The tower has three underground levels of parking space for approximately 500 vehicles, as well as freight elevators and power generators to fully supply the building electricity needs.
The tower has Gold LEED certification. From the beginning, the project was conceived with the idea of design and quality parameters for a power-efficient building, with excellent performance refrigeration systems, savings in water consumption and green spaces with native plants. On the other hand, there are bicycle lanes (to discourage car use) and there are special parking places for hybrid cars.
Eduardo Costantini received the award to the best 2014 developer for this project. It was given to him by Asociación de Profesores y Directivos de Programas de Real Estate (APPI) as it is an innovative project, the second tallest and sustainable building in the city.
The tower is one of the most modern building in the country and one of the most important ones in Latin America, with the highest environmentally sustainable standards.
