Progress is underway in Mexico as the new U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara celebrates its topping out today!

Located on an 8.5-acre site in the Monraz neighborhood along Guadalajara's western border with the city of Zapopan, this multi-building project supports the continued expansion of U.S.–Mexican diplomatic, security, and commercial relations and embodies #StateOBO's goals for safe, secure, functional, and resilient facilities that provide a robust platform for U.S. diplomacy abroad.

We look forward to its completion in early 2023!

Today, the U.S. Consulate General in Nogales celebrated the completion of the outer structure of the new consulate building in the Colonia Jardines Kalitea district of Nogales, Mexico.

Consul General Laura Biedebach led the topping out ceremony, accompanied by the Governor of the State of Sonora, Alfonso Durazo Montaño; the Mayor of Nogales, Juan Gim Nogales; and Mexican and American officials.

The design of the new Consulate will include a variety of energy-efficiency strategies including photovoltaic (PV) arrays, stormwater retention and infiltration, and local or regionally-adapted plantings and is on track to achieve LEED Silver certification with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

#StateOBO is proud to support the new U.S. Embassy in Ankara as construction nears completion! The new campus will resemble the architectural style prevalent in much of the surrounding region and will incorporate several high-performing and sustainable features including low-water-use plumbing fixtures, climate-appropriate landscaping, and rainwater harvesting.

This milestone is a testament to the dedication of the entire OBO team and its partners. Congratulations to all involved!

#StateOBO recently celebrated the ribbon-cutting for a new residential apartment complex for the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa. The new residences, located in close proximity to the Embassy campus, helps advance OBO's Diplomatic Residential Initiative by improving the lives of U.S. diplomats and their families through the provision of seismically safe, and secure housing in a rapidly growing urban environment.

This diplomatic housing project, developed by Verdant Ventures and Gateway Real Estate Africa, is the first of its kind in Addis Ababa and was selected for the Best High-End Residential Award at the 5th annual African Property Investment Awards for Elevation Residences. Congrats to all who played a role in this important project!
