urban pole.

World Trade Center Montevideo, WTC Montevideo Free Zone Towers 1 and 2, Hilton Garden Inn and Montevideo Shopping are situated in the most strategic location in Montevideo. During the last decades, the realization of these outstanding real estate, commercial and business projects has consolidated this modern urban pole as the best and most complete in Uruguay. The wide range of accessible services and the unique location in the city, a few minutes from the Port and Carrasco International Airport and with spectacular views of the Port of Buceo, have also contributed to this consolidation.


World Trade Center Montevideo comprises six towers: WTC 1 and WTC 2 with 22 floors each, WTC 3 with 19 floors, WTC 4 with 40 floors, WTC Montevideo Free Zone Tower 1 with 24 floors and Tower 2 with 20 floors along with two three-storey buildings called WTC Plaza and WTC Avenida. There is also a large central square called Plaza de las Torres, whose Paseo de las Esculturas stands out crowned with a magnificent sculpture by Pablo Atchugarry, a renowned national artist. These buildings compose the most important AAA business complex in Uruguay.

International reputation.

The idea of aiming at commercial decentralization originally conceived and promoted by architects Ernesto Kimelman and David Ruben Flom together with Estudio Luis E. Lecueder, a renowned firm with vast experience in the real estate business in Uruguay, has been put into effect through the consolidation of the Complex. Credibility, an international reputation, service excellence and contribution to the urban development of World Trade Center Montevideo’s sphere of influence are only some of the characteristics of the added value that the brand offers.


World Trade Center Montevideo is only 20 minutes away from Carrasco International Airport and 15 from the Port of Montevideo. It is next to Montevideo Shopping, the first shopping mall of the country, in the area of greatest growth in the city. It combines a strategic location and high quality services in a gorgeous natural setting in harmony with the environment.


The towers and buildings which compose the Complex have a diaphanous-floor structure which adjusts to the specific needs of each company willing to settle into them. Its electronic brain centralizes energy supply, security control and maintenance of equipment and facilities. A sophisticated system supports an excellent level of surveillance and provides comfort as well as protection to thousands of people who enter the Complex every day.
