Apple Antara features a pavilion design with large 23-foot-tall sliding glass doors that create a 20-foot-wide entrance, complete with curved corner glass panels allowing natural light to flow into the store. Inside, there is also a Forum and 8K Video Wall for Today at Apple sessions, nestled among indoor trees.

And he/she is right. Mexico City IS the largest city in North America (the continent as you state,) being larger than New York and L.A.

Large sliding glass doors. Mexico City climate. Most all glass exterior.

Is the previous GIANT wind farm suppose to cover the air conditioning cost? How does that work?
Mexico City is not as hot as many people think (21 celsius degrees average) and that Polanco area where the store's located is populated by large buildings and trees that project large shadows, thus many sidewalks and malls are actually pleasing to take a stroll on even on hot days. Besides, the local city government has subsidized water and electricity costs so executive offices and luxury flats proliferate the area to attract international investments. The zone is also home for celebrities, politicians, soccer players, and high-ranking executives. Privilege is the norm there.

Those 2 curved glass panes alone cost a fortune, bet you can buy a decent car for the money those cost.
