The World Trade Center IV is the tallest private building in Uruguay, used for first-class offices.

It has 46 levels, with 125 m above ground and 4 basements. It has a total of 53,500 m2 built.

The structure is made of post-tensioned, in situ, reinforced concrete.

Due to its great height and location close to the coast, for the development of this project a wind tunnel study was contracted to the firm CPP Inc., located in Fort Collins, Colorado, United States.

In this study, a scale model of the building was manufactured, and tests were carried out to determine maximum pressures on the cladding and structural loads due to design-level winds, as well as to assess the comfort of pedestrians during windy conditions.
