Island eso parece mas el Residencial Martin Pena... no dejaste ningun espacio para la naturaleza que es lo mas importante y bonito de esa area... prefiero que conserven esas areas verdes y constuyan edificios mas altos en el area de Hato Rey para viviendas, comercio y oficinas

@Island: Acuérdate que eso es mangle y había un video en el hilo del Canal que nos mostraba el canal antes y como es ahora. Se debe dejar mucho espacio que en torno se puede usar como ecoturismo y darle valor a este desarrollo nuevo.

Estoy de acuerdo que debe existir muchas areas verdes en la ciudad. Por lo menos, creo que Avenida Cesar Gonzalez debe cruzar el canal. Still, I think that eventually, that entire area will become developed. They should, however, definitely preserve some portion of it. I'd say the area west of PR-22 between Canal Martin Pena and Canal Puerto Nueva should be preserved, as well as the entire north coast of the canal. It's close to Parque Central and it would be difficult to create roadway access to that area if it were to become developed.

Other areas around the San Jose lake need to be preserved too. There is a good amount of green space near Isla Verde that could be used for ecotourism

Tránsito isleño:

Está muy chévere el esfuerzo que hiciste con la maqueta que hiciste, pero creo que ya mucho de tus propuestas ya son realidad. Por lo menos la mayoría de los mangles alrededor del caño ya restaurado son parte del Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan, un área protegida gracias al Consorcio creado a raíz del hundimiento de la barcaza Morris J. Berman. También te informo que el Acuaexpreso está funcionando regularmente actualmente en dicho canal y da servicio de Hato Rey al Viejo San Juan.

Hay algunos segmentos que marcas como posible reserva natural que son propiedad del Municipio y que serán desarrollados como parte de nuevas atracciones como nuevos parques y ampliaciones al existente Parque Central.

Creo que sería mejor que te enfocaras en la parte del caño que aún no se ha restaurado.

hmmm, maybe not without extreme opposition.

I have an idea. Why not put the rail yards next to the shipping port?

San Juan takes charge of permitting within capital city
By : MARIO SANTANA
mario@caribbeanbusinesspr.com
Edition: July 30, 2009 | Volume: 37 | No: 30

ARPE and Planning Board transfer permit powers to City Hall’s Permits Office



If you are a developer who recently bought a parcel of land in Santurce, a retailer planning to open a new store in Hato Rey or a capital city resident who simply wants to expand your Río Piedras home, this is important news for you. In San Juan, the municipal government is now in charge of the permits process.

So, if your project, whatever the size, is in San Juan, don’t go to the Commonwealth Regulations & Permits Administration (ARPE by its Spanish acronym). Since mid-July, the place to file permit requests is the San Juan Municipal Permits Office.

Director Luis Martínez Pueyo is hoping permitting by San Juan will be speedier than through ARPE.

The San Juan Permits Office, on the fourth floor of the Land Authority Building on Chardón Avenue in Hato Rey, is open on weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

San Juan is the sixth municipality to take over permitting within its borders from ARPE and the Planning Board. However, the high concentration of retail, commercial and residential spaces makes the capital city a special case.

A recent report on shopping-center activity shows the importance of San Juan for that sector. According to the report, 32% of all retail sales islandwide last year were made in San Juan, reaching $11 billion last year, far more than the $6.9 billion posted in Bayamón and the $5.2 billion that changed hands in Caguas.



San Juan Mayor Jorge Santini and Gov. Luis Fortuño signed the agreement in mid-May, clearing the way for the transfer of permitting powers to San Juan. The actual transfer, however, went into effect July 15, Martínez Pueyo explained.

San Juan’s permits process and restrictions

There are only two limitations to San Juan’s permitting powers: if a project whose permit is requested changes the density of a certain district or, if the permit requested changes the use of a structure from residential to commercial, then ARPE (or the proposed new agency that may replace it in the future) retains its jurisdiction, Martínez Pueyo said.

In any case, the permit request must first be filed in San Juan’s Permit Office, not at ARPE, he added. The San Juan office will transfer the permit request to ARPE if it finds in an initial evaluation that the municipality doesn’t have jurisdiction to issue the permit requested.

There is no deadline for San Juan to determine whether it has jurisdiction over a permit request or to transfer a permit request to ARPE, said Martínez Pueyo, who added that in most cases it could be done in 10 days.

Martínez Pueyo acknowledged that because of the high value of land in the Condado area, many permit requests are for multifloor residential and commercial projects that alter the density of the district. Therefore, the San Juan Permit Office probably will have to transfer those permit requests to ARPE.

San Juan’s territorial planning regulations provide, according to a formula that takes into account the square meters of proposed projects, how many residential units can be built on a piece of land before the project alters the district’s density and the municipality loses its jurisdiction, he added.

Martínez Pueyo made it clear the transfer of a permit request to ARPE is an exception to the rule that the city government will handle permit requests.

As with the permits process at ARPE, requests handled by San Juan require the endorsement of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct & Sewer Authority; Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority; and the Fire, Health, Transportation & Public Works and Natural & Environmental Resources departments.

If the proposed project will have a significant environmental impact, it must comply with Puerto Rico’s Environmental Policy Act, Martínez Pueyo explained. The first analysis to decide if a project needs an environmental impact statement will be done by the municipality, but the final word rests with the Commonwealth Environmental Quality Board, he added.

San Juan neighborhoods’ particularities

Besides its muscle in business activity, San Juan’s diverse neighborhoods distinguish it from other municipalities, according to Martínez Pueyo. Within its borders, San Juan has several communities with their own unique character including Old San Juan, Condado, Miramar, Santurce and downtown Río Piedras.

Permitting in Old San Juan and Miramar is governed by a Planning Board regulation for historic sites that gives a major role in the decision making to the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, he explained. Condado and Santurce construction permits are governed by special Planning Board regulations. The Río Piedras urban center is covered by a special law aimed at revitalizing the area.

Notwithstanding, Martínez Pueyo said the San Juan Permits Office has jurisdiction over all permit requests in those neighborhoods. He said the Planning Board’s special regulations for these districts will be enforced as usual, with the evaluation of compliance and the final decision of granting or denying a permit now in San Juan’s hands.

He said that although the San Juan Permits Office has the same time goals as ARPE—no more than 30 days to make a decision in most simple cases—the fact the municipal office will handle fewer cases than ARPE’s San Juan regional office would help it meet that time frame.

Martínez Pueyo explained that for some types of projects, especially those where the new use will be the same or very similar to the previous use, the law allows permit requests to be filed with a certification by an engineer or architect of compliance with all regulations. In those cases, the permit should be granted in no more than five days, he said.

If a permit requires some discretion from the office’s director, such as permitting a building that would be taller than the height set for a district, a special committee would consider it first and submit recommendations. That committee is composed of the Territorial Planning Office director and two members of the private sector named by the mayor.

The San Juan Permits Office is now in operation with 34 employees, including five inspectors; eight engineers or planners in charge of technical evaluations; eight clerical personnel to take permit requests; a lawyer with two aides to deal with legal matters; the director; his deputy and administrative staff, including human resources. Martínez Pueyo anticipated the staff will increase to 36 as soon as the office contracts an additional engineer and inspector.

The office’s inspectors must visit all sites where a permit is requested, except those where the law allows the filing of the permit request by certification of an engineer or an architect. At least 10% of those requests by certification will be subject to random audits by the office, Martínez Pueyo explained.

Eso está en veremos porque esos proyectos, al ser tan grandes, podrían cambiar grandemente la densidad del área y por lo tanto podrían caer bajo la jurisdicción de ARPE y da la misma sht... Eso sí, que bueno porque ahora habrá más agilidad.

davost, it could be built in that area, a little closer to PR-22 than on your map because I think the area you put it is supposed to be developed. I just wanted it as close to the central station for capacity reasons.

That's pretty close, right? And it has easy access to freight. and it could go anywhere here. I honestly would prefer it go under San Juan rather than on the surface because San Juan is so developed, but I don't know you tell me.

It doesn't need to go under San Juan to access Hato Rey though. The portion through Minillas to VSJ and out towards the airport would be underground though. HOWEVER, I am considering replacing the portion between Minillas and SJU with a different routing along PR-8 since the gov't is talking about extending PR-8 to Hato Rey.

Una pregunta: alguien sabe que es lo que se esta contruyendo en la Avenida
Barbosa??? Al lado de John Dowey college estan contruyendo en ese espacio
y pues es una esquina bastante grande. No va a hacer un mega proyecto obviamente
pero esa gente hasta removio el canal de la laguna que pasaba por ay en la contruccion.

No creo que sea nada del otro mundo pero tengo curiosidad pues hace par de a~os se
rumora que iban a poner un walgreens ay. Cuando paso ahora mismo el
letrero dice "proyecto: plaza barbosa".

Al menos por la parte ambiental no fue aprobado... Sólo el arquitecto Jaime Fournier sabrá qué pasará con el proyecto.
