DescriptionEdit

It has 20 floors for offices, five for parking and a shopping plaza. It was developed by Grupo Agrisal and is described as an "intelligent building". A particular feature is the glass that makes up the structure, which occupies 13,000 square meters of low emissivity that limits solar heat input and ultraviolet light, but takes full advantage of natural light. The structure was inaugurated on 1 December 2009 and is the second highest tower of El Salvador. It is also amongst the most complex and modern buildings throughout Central America.

One of the main innovations of the Torre Futura is the implementation of a first-class shopping mall, called Plaza Futura, which has 3,000 m² and has exclusive restaurants and a viewpoint where you can see much of the city. Torre Futura was designed by KMD Architects. Its construction was overseen by the firm MR Melendez Arquitectos, headed by the salvadoran architect Manuel Roberto Melendez Bischitz.
