The Mexico City Aristoteles Polanco Center occupies the entire fifth floor of an elegant building right in front of Parque Lincoln, a beautiful city center park named in honour of Abraham Lincoln to commemorate his opposition to the Mexican-American War. The center enjoys uninterrupted, panoramic views across the park's green spaces and lakes. It is in the south of Polanco district, which is an upscale, multicultural area inhabited by influential politicians, artists and business people. This is the city's leading district for the retail sector, with many upmarket stores offering clothing, furniture and jewellery, and it also contains many big name commercial and professional services businesses. A number of national and international economic development organisations have offices locally.
