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.”
