Located in a primarily residential area south of Bogotá, Arrecife 106 makes its mark on the skyline. The 14-story apartment building offers residents a spectacular view of the city from the building’s rooftop, which has a playground for children and barbeque and social areas for adults. Arrecife 106 has 43 residences that include one, two and three-bedroom unit types that come in varying sizes.
Developed by Construcciones Arrecife SAS, Arrecife 106 has environmentally-friendly construction materials and additional green features to conserve natural resources and reduce utility costs for residents. The building’s insulated roof and walls ensure that residents remain warm in Bogotá’s colder climate without requiring heat, while low-flow showerheads and faucets help residents save water. Energy-efficient lighting in common areas and outdoor spaces reduces operating costs.
With over 40 years of experience in the Colombian construction sector, Construcciones Arrecife SAS has built more than 35 projects including residential buildings, offices and hotels in Bogotá and Barranquilla. The company is committed to developing buildings that are modern and functional, but also sustainable. Arrecife 106 has received final EDGE certification from CAMACOL.
