Notes:
Boari also undertook the construction of the Edificio Central de Correos (1902-1907), Mexico City, the first building in Mexico to use reinforced concrete. The exterior was faced in white stone, and the decorative details show a hybrid revival of Italian Renaissance and Hispano-Flemish style. It is an early example in Mexico of a large project given a specific functional role.
