Seguros Monterrey unveils New York Life Tower in Mexico2 August 2012
Mexico-based Seguros Monterrey New York Life, a wholly owned life insurance subsidiary of New York Life, has opened a New York Life Tower, a 32-storey tower in Mexico City’s central zone.
Designed by Jean Michel Colonnier, the New York Life Tower, sheathed in reflective glass, is 500 feet tall. Approximately 2,500 employees and agents, or about 36% of Seguros Monterrey New York Life's workforce, will work across 15-stories of the new tower.
New York Life said that the tower's design was inspired by the El Angel de la Independencia (The Angel of Independence) monument, built to commemorate the centennial of the beginning of Mexico's War of Independence, celebrated in 1810.
The tower, which utilizes the abundant natural light of the setting to create a bright and open working environment, has achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Seguros Monterrey New York Life offers specialized life insurance and major medical expense services through 183 locations and more than 5,000 professional agents.
