Acuarela · Life and Community

Conceived as a vibrant development, Acuarela is in the heart of the Zona Real (on Paseo Valle Real and Paseo La Toscana). Within nearly 30 acres, the community will include an esplanade, fountains and green areas surrounded by a mall, eight residential towers, three Class A corporate buildings and a first-class hotel, meeting at a welcoming acre and a half central park providing recreational areas and unparalleled landscaping.

Acuarela is designed to establish the Zona Real as a space where families have the best services within a verdant setting that integrates work spaces, housing, entertainment, shopping, culture and cuisine all in one place, to promote harmonious living with an awareness of a nascent urban community. Its design will guarantee accessibility and allow the circulation of bicycles and pedestrians, activating the area and creating better throughways. In addition, the project will be entirely inclusive, as it will have signage for people with special abilities.

This urban community is a development of Grupo DMI, a Mexican company with more than 23 years dedicated to launching the cities of the future. It has developed more than 242 million square feet with concepts characterized by innovation and integration with the environment, among them Andares, the most important mixed-use development in the western part of the country and a cultural icon in Guadalajara. The architecture of the master plan is the responsibility of the international firm CallisonRTKL, which will unite elements that define the essence of the city with others that define its future, thus creating a space for the creation of a community that will balance tradition with modernity.

Its sustainable and intelligent design was developed to reduce its ecological footprint and allow organic integration with the environment. Energy consumption will be reduced by implementing features such as an intelligent parking system with mobile payment, air conditioning systems, lighting levels that meet optimization requirements and smart facades, among others. Water reuse systems are planned through a treatment plant, along with rainwater collection systems and ultra-low consumption sanitation systems to achieve savings of up to 20 percent. Acuarela also plans to implement a program of reduction, collection and reuse of solid trash such as cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, metals and organic and inorganic waste to protect our soil.

Due to its strategic location in the heart of the Zona Real, Acuarela is surrounded by some of the best universities in Jalisco, medical centers, malls, private subdivisions, cultural and sports centers, corporate corridors and financial services. It has easy access from the Guadalajara Metropolitan Zone’s main roads, and the city’s most iconic entertainment points, such as Andares, PALCCO, Museo Trompo Mágico, Auditorio Telmex and Estadio Akron, among many others, can be reached by various means of transportation in a matter of minutes.
