A gigantic hole west of the Mall San Pedro is the site for a gigantic office center.
The project is Centro de Negocios Sigma and not an extension of the mall as many believe.
Daniel Solano, manager of the development project, said that the structure is supposed to be 50,000 square meters. That’s about 538,200 square feet. In addition, the completed structure will have 700 underground parking spaces.
The completion date is April 2013, he said. Work began last month. The general contractor is Van der Laat y Jiménez S.A.
So far the site is marked by a procession of dump trucks carrying away soil that was removed to provide a foundation. Some footers are in and workmen are beginning to put up rebar for concrete pilars.
The building is supposed to be environmentally friendly, said Solano. There will be 20,000 square meters of rental space. That’s about 215,300 square feet. The location is on the Bulevar Barrio Dent.
