CMI invets in shopping centers

Corporación Multi Inversiones, also known as CMI, is preparing the expansion and remodeling of five projects in Guatemala.

Almost ready. Pradera Zacapa, in the eastern department of Zacapa, will be inaugurated in November. It represents an investment of $15 million for a 69-store commercial complex, according to comments Felipe Antonio Bosch Gutiérrez..

The final stretch of 2019 becomes opening season for CMI, the real estate arm of Corporación Multi Inversiones (CMI), which in October began with the expansions of Pradera Chimaltenango and Pradera Xela, as well as the remodeling of Pradera Escuintla, and will continue later with the opening of Pradera Zacapa and Pradera Petapa.

Pradera Zacapa, which will have 13,500 square meters of construction area, plus 18,000 square meters for parking, will be inaugurated in November. The investment in this single-level complex, which includes 69 stores and approximately 350 parking spaces, amounts to $15 million.

CMI invets in shopping centers

This is the first shopping center in which the company will incorporate a solar panel system, the first pilot project to generate complementary clean and renewable energy for use in the complex, by means of 7,000 square meters of panels mounted on the roofs of the infrastructure.

Depending on solar radiation, the firm anticipates that these will generate half of the energy required by the Pradera Zacapa CMI operation.

How will this initiative be formed?

The initiative, which will be environmentally friendly, will highlight aspects such as efficient lighting with LED lamps, energy-efficient air conditioning systems and treatment plants.

It will also use polyurethane sheets for the roof, bedroom glass and waterproofing with a high reflectance value, which will minimize the impact of heat.

The façade will respond to the renovated design of the Pradera shopping centers. The concept adopted will include green walls and natural plants native to the region, which will be maintained by means of a drip ferti-irrigation system that, compared to traditional systems, will save 40% of water.

When did this construction start?

Construction began in December 2018 and has generated around 600 job positions for local workers, indicates Juan Pablo Caballeros, engineering and construction manager of Multiproyectos CMI.

Pradera Zacapa will be the brand’s thirteenth shopping center and will have two anchors, Cinépolis movie theaters and a La Torre supermarket.

In addition, there will be 20 kiosks, a food court with seven restaurant options and capacity for 300 diners, and an area that will be connected to a pergola and a park with a green area. The project is located in zone 3 of the departmental capital of Zacapa.

Expansions and remodeling

In Escuintla, the company is finalizing a total remodeling of the image and the creation of new uses within the original building. To this end, it is investing approximately $5 million, explains Natalia Cozza, the company’s community shopping center manager.

Among the investments the company is currently making is the inauguration of the expansion of the Pradera Chimaltenango shopping center. This is something innovative and will surely benefit the Guatemalan community.

Vizcaino Reserve

With a total of 35 World Heritage Sites, Mexico is the seventh country in the world, and the first in America with more sites recognized by UNESCO, some of these places stand out for their cultural value, while others stand out for their natural peculiarities. A good way to know a lot of them, and at the same time get some of the cheap flights to Mexico, would be traveling through the following states that have almost half of the Patrimonies of Humanity of Mexico.

Jalisco: Tequila-land

The Camino Real was the most important commercial route of New Spain, along the way there are many towns, monuments and buildings of historical relevance. It is a shared cultural heritage, but the elements of the road that have been declared as heritage in Jalisco are, the center of Lagos de Moreno, the historical set of the Town of Ojuelos, the bridge of Ojuelos, the Hacienda de Ciénega de Mata and the cemetery of Encarnación Díaz.
Hospice Cabañas. The impressive architecture and the murals of José Clemente Orozco make this building one of the most identifiable in Guadalajara and throughout Mexico.
The valleys of Tequila and Amatitán have been dominated for centuries by endless fields of blue agave. Tequila is one of the most characteristic drinks of Mexico and a very important part of the national identity.

Jalisco community

Guanajuato

Both San Miguel de Allende and the sanctuary of Jesús de Nazareno date from the seventeenth century and are great examples of the Mexican Baroque apogee, which undoubtedly become a pleasure to admire.
The underground streets, the alleys, the impressive colonial architecture and the color of its buildings are some of the characteristics that make Guanajuato one of the most identifiable cities in Mexico and the world.

Guanajuato houses

Baja California Sur

The Gulf of California is one of the most important natural protected areas of Mexico, the aquarium of the world, as Jacques Cousteau called it, is home to many species of marine mammals, birds and fish. This heritage includes 40 islands of the Gulf of California, the El Vizcaino biosphere reserve, the Bahia de Loreto and Cabo Pulmo national parks, the Cabo San Lucas protected natural area and the Balandra wildlife protection area.

Beach od baja california

The murals of the Sierra de San Francisco are witnesses to a culture that flourished in northern Mexico 2 thousand years ago, due to the aridity of the region and the difficulty in accessing the caves in which the paintings are located. These are the best-preserved examples of rock art in the world.

The coastal lagoons of San Ignacio and Ojo de Liebre are shelters where gray whales come every year to reproduce, other mammals of the world including the monumental blue whale, also arrive annually at this site of incalculable natural value.

We still have a long way to go between the different assets that Mexico has, but you could start with these and save so you can take advantage of the low seasons and save with one of the cheap flights to Mexico to complete your visit to the Patrimonies of the Mexican humanity.
