Cidade Matarazzo will house the largest urban forest in the world. More than 10,000 trees native to the Brazilian Atlantic forest will be planted on the property grounds, vertically engulfing Jean Nouvel’s Mata Atlântica Tower and laying out a green corridor that will start at Paulista Avenue and extend through than 50,000 square meters. Amidst the noise and bustle of Av. Paulista, Cidadade Matarazzo will be a world apart.

Visitors will be able to walk about its gardens and catch a glimpse of the charming village of historic buildings that will have been fully restored by Groupe Allard. An unprecedented refuge in this Latin American capital of culture. A place of “calm urbanity and incredible trees,” as architect Jean Nouvel said.

The project will be signed by landscape designer Louis Benech, internationally recognized as one of the best in the world. His projects include the Princess Garden at the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro and the gardens of the Louvre and the Versailles Palace fountain.

To stay, live, visit or shop in this oasis is to surrender to the privilege of being in a magical place that is historical, contemporary, Brazilian, and global at the same time.
