Tampico bets on the development of mixed-use buildings


Tampico began to bet on innovative projects such as mixed buildings, which house homes and businesses in the same space.

Carlos de la Rosa, Secretary of Urban Development of Tampico, affirmed that in the city there is a potential for vertical growth in the face of territorial saturation.

For this reason, the Territorial Ordering Plan in Tampico was modified in important avenues to give the opportunity to said developments”.

“Homes and businesses can be combined, that is the opportunity that you have in Tampico, it is the future,” said the secretary.

Nuevo León and Jalisco, successful cases of verticality

On the other hand, the minister recognized that the state is imitating the construction of mixed buildings in Nuevo León or Jalisco.

“There are success stories in cities like Monterrey, San Pedro Garza García, Mexico and Guadalajara where mixed vertical developments are successful.”

He explained that the greatest advantage of this type of construction is the comfort that it represents for citizens to have everything in a certain perimeter.  

“You don’t have to leave an area to shop because there are anchor stores. Companies give priority to these spaces that avoid saturation of roads and speed up the dynamism of commercial areas”, he added.
