While any official groundbreaking ceremonies have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, progress continues at the Merida’s U.S. consulate complex at Via Montejo.

The new U.S. Consulate promises a “secure, resilient, and sustainable platform for diplomacy,” government officials said. Seattle-based Miller Hull Partnership is the design architect BL Harbert International is contractor. The US$150 million project is expected to be completed in 2023.

The consulate will be much grander and more contemporary than the current compound on Calle 60.
