Lomas de Chapultepec
Lomas de Chapultepecby Ciudad de México Sotheby´s International Realty
The neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec is a highly acclaimed neighborhood, widely popular for its wealthy enclaves housing upscale mansions and colonial style homes. After its establishment in the early 1920s, the district or Colonia gradually grew popular among migrants fleeing from the prime city neighborhoods during the Mexican Revolution time. Today’s Lomas de Chapultepec, however, is an upscale urban park with many high-end homes in swanky neighborhoods, a century-old castle-turned-museum, a well-appointed zoological park and an amusement park, and many museums offering an up-close cultural experience to all visitors.
Amid all its urban settings and ritzy communities lies the Chapultec Zoological Park, which ranks high among the list of top local attractions. This zoological park, since its inauguration in 1926, entertains its patrons by offering them an enjoyable and up-close animal viewing experience within its 13.5 hectares of lush setting housing more than 200 wildlife species. What makes the zoo unique is its Victorian style caging, hoofed stock and wild hippos bred and raised within the zoo’s advanced facility. The zoo has giant pandas, which is quite uncommon in most American zoos, and many other exotic animals within its premises.
A majority of the colonial style mansions in Lomas de Chapultepec feature a unique architectural style, often referred to as the Califoniano style with pitched roofs, stone carvings around the large windows and sunrooms. While the local government in association with the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes works towards the protection of these colonial homes built during the Mexican Miracle Era, there are a few owned by wealthy immigrants and prominent upper-class Mexican families. Some of the private homes, which average in millions of dollars, are still some of those great value proprieties that interest most overseas investors looking for an amazing real estate return on investment.
As the colonia grew in size and flourished, there are many real estate developments all around the neighborhood. Apart from many high-end shopping districts, commercial and business hubs, the colonia has various foreign embassies, upscale restaurants, and luxury apartment complexes too. That’s the major reason why Lomas de Chapultepec is an ideal district in Ciudad de Mexico for real estate investment.
