Acalli

Acalli

Developed by Promotora Vivela S.A. de C.V., Acalli is a two-tower residential complex comprised of 60 one and two-bedroom apartments on the historical Hacienda la Gavia street of Mexico City. The residential project seeks to blend modern architectural design, high-quality construction, and green building strategies to promote and adopt sustainable practices within Mexico’s residential building sector.

As such, Acalli’s towers feature energy-saving lighting systems and water-efficient faucets in its apartments and environmentally-friendly building materials such as honeycomb clay blocks. Because of Acalli’s green design, each household is expected to realize US$20 estimated reduction in utility costs per month.

Residents will enjoy Acalli’s amenities such as playgrounds, gardens and other open areas, as well as close proximity to recreational, commercial, educational and medical facilities such as Galerias Perinorte, Tecnológico de Monterrey and Hospital General 57.

Promotora Vivela S.A. de C.V. intends to fulfill its vision of promoting resource-saving practices in Mexico by EDGE-certifying its future projects. Acalli has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
