The Embassy of the United States of America in Mexico City is the diplomatic mission of United States of America to the United Mexican States. The embassy’s chancery is situated on the Paseo de la Reforma, Colonia Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City.

The current chancery building began in 1960 and was completed in 1964 at a cost of US$5 million. At the time, it was the second largest US embassy building in the world.

In 2011, the United States Department of State announced plans to build a new US embassy in the Nuevo Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City. Estimated price of the new embassy is US$763 million.

On February 13, 2018, construction of the new embassy began. The estimated cost is nearly US$1 billion ($943 million), and it’s expected to be completed by 2022.
