This new residential structure is destined to become one of the most desired park front addresses in Mexico City

Named for the Ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer, Arquimedes’ dynamic façade finds inspiration in the geometrical theorems Arquimedes de Syracuse is credited with proving. Using cutting edge design technologies, FR-EE has designed this residential building as an iconic new address for Mexico City’s famous Polanco neighbourhood, known for its cultural diversity and rich architectural heritage.

Situated close to Chapultepec Park, one of the largest parks most popular tourist destinations in Mexico, every residence in A7 possesses exceptional park views through floor-to-ceiling windows fronted by generous balconies that are unique for each unit.

A luxurious marble-clad lobby sets the mood with glass curtain walls framing a serene verdant landscape and custom water feature beyond. Exclusive amenities are located on both the ground floor and the rooftop, offering residents elegant and luxe spaces to relax and entertain. A lap pool, spa amenities and state-of-the-art fitness centre overlook the garden and are conveniently accessible from the lobby. 

The rooftop houses flexible function rooms, private and public dining areas, a full bar, and terraces overlooking Chapultepec Park and the city’s skyline. Located in one of Mexico City’s most desirable neighbourhoods, A7 is minutes from Masaryk Avenue’s shopping, vibrant restaurants, and destination nightlife, as well as a diverse cultural scene with galleries, theatres, and museums. A7 is destined to become a Polanco icon, and one of the most desired park front addresses in all of Mexico City.
