FARIA LIMA
SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL

This development consists of a 58,000-sq. meter office building and a 2,000-sq. meter multipurpose building on an unusually large site along the main avenue, Faria Lima in São Paulo, Brazil. The site conditions offer a unique opportunity to create an urban space with the two buildings facing and defining the public plaza. Visually the plaza will extend over Faria Lima to create a larger entity with a future development across the avenue.

The local zoning limits the maximum height to 124 meters but the building will still tower above its neighbors. The office tower will incorporate green elements in its design to make use of specific site conditions in the climate of São Paulo, Brazil. The building will offer attractive office spaces in a modern building of elegant but simple design.

The construction methods and components for the project will be forward-thinking and sustainable. Faria Lima will be designed in general conformance with categories established by the United States Green Building Council Reference Guide for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) principals.
