La Isla Merida

Merida, Mexico

La Isla Merida is a large new town center that will define the new center of Merida, the largest and most historic city in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The project is designed based upon a careful study of Merida’s unique architectural heritage. While capturing the essence of Merida, the project will bring its world-class retail offerings that have previously been unavailable to them. The town center includes two department stores, cinema, gourmet grocery, a food and beverage area overlooking a man-made lake.
