36 apartments in Bogota

New York, March 4, 2014 – Richard Meier & Partners to design first project in Bogota, Colombia. The Vitrvm development will consist of two towers with a total of 36 apartments and will be located along Septima Avenue in the north section of the city. The project is contextually inspired by the beauty of its immediate surroundings and it aims to reflect and to engage the beautiful gardens and large trees at the Chico Park and the Seminario Mayor.

Vitrvm, the first project in Colombia designed by Richard Meier & Partners is located on a prominent site along Septima Avenue in Bogotá. With impressive views towards the city and in direct relationship with the secluded Seminario Mayor, one of the largest and most important seminaries in Colombia, this 13 story residential project consists of two towers. The site is surrounded by the greenery of the nearby mountains and the landmarked Chico Park. A ravine and water gorge delimits the property to the north and serves as a buffer and separation to the neighboring property delineating the unique angular shape of the site.

Jorge Estrada, Owner and executive director at Icono Urbano, comments: “When we started our Vitrvm project, we were looking for an architect who could embrace and respect the unique characteristics and qualities of our site. It is very gratifying for us at Icono Urbano to develop this important project with the prestigious firm of Richard Meier & Partners Architects. Their expertise, dedication and design quality is reflected in the project. The sales of the apartments have been very strong even at an early stage of the project and we have no doubt that Vitrvm will become a reference project for Colombia.”
