Ten years later (2012) thanks to the political management done by the actual State Govern of Puebla and the Infrastucture Department, it was possible to rise up this building.

As the first step, a road modification was done by the main access to the Cultural Center, creating two new road entries for vehicles and pedestrians, also with and exit on the oposite side creating a conection with the Ignacio Zaragoza Boulevard. This intervention allowed us to create a new shape for the terrain where the new building was going to take place, also oppening space for new green areas and pedestrian roads. This way the central part of the land  was enable for the location of the Info-Box.
