They are renders. In the website it doesn't mention it is a completed project. I must say that the renders are quite realistic though

Son renders. En la web no se menciona que el proyecto esté terminado. Pero tengo que decir que los renders son muy realistas

Transforming La Rambla from a social and local perspective

The interdisciplinary km-ZERO team, made up of 15 experts from different fields, will be tasked with rethinking La Rambla from an integrated, local, social and urban perspective. The views of local residents will be present throughout the entire process, with four cooperative groups involved. The goal is to regain La Rambla as a place for strolling and for community life, without any major urban changes.

The winner of the competition to transform La Rambla is the interdisciplinary km-ZERO team, which will now be tasked with rethinking the avenue with an integrated, physical and social vision, along with local residents. Over the next six months, residents will also be involved as the team will puts together a strategy for regaining La Rambla as a place to stroll and for community life, without a major overhaul but guaranteeing balanced local and general use. In the autumn of 2018 the executive project should be ready, with work to then begin at the start of 2019.

Local participation will take the form of four cooperative groups so that citizens are involved at all times in the process. The social and urban project will promote long-term housing policies, accessibility to La Rambla and new local commerce to help offset the amount of commerce based on tourism. Janet Sanz, the Deputy Mayor for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility, explained: “La Rambla is alive and transforms at the same rhythm as the city does, but in the last few years it has been through a vague period which hasn’t motivated citizens to make it their own”. Sanz added: “The challenge is to recapture the essence of La Rambla and to do so taking into account how everything happening there has an impact on the whole city. That means a different competition, like the one which has been held, worthy of the symbolic, physical and emotional dimension of La Rambla”.

Memorial in homage to victims

Action to be carried out on La Rambla includes a memorial explaining the attack there and paying homage to the victims. The process will also see local entities take part in the memory workgroup at the Ciutat Vella district office and the commission on memory programmes.

I see way too many projects of this type in Barcelona on these pages.
They are clearly not intended for local residents. The few locals who can afford this type of apartment are not going to live on this area, but are living in Pedralbes etc.

What Barcelona needs is housing for the middle class, not this type of luxury housing for tourists or people who are only going to spend a few weeks a year there. (But at some point in the future those who buy such place will realise that they are living in a dead neighbourhood where nothing of the original Barcelona that they liked is left, except for the buildings themselves...)

There are several new housing projects all around Barcelona and its suburbs, but unfortunately they are either small developments or dull and ugly buildings that I personally find not interesting to get posted in here. However, I totally agree with you in the fact that the gentrification process exists in the centre districts, and it is a pity that investors leave locals apart.

you can't know that... there are lot of rich people from Barcelona that like to live at those places

and if the person that buys that flat is a foreigner, doesn't matters, because he will become a resident.

We can't be hypocrites saying that poor immigrants are welcome, but not rich immigrants. I'm a poor immigrant, so that's why I don't like that kind of comparison, everyone should be welcome. Those buildings are old and need a lot of investment to be restored, so that money of foreigners or local people with lot of money is welcome, because that's how those places can remain in a good shape.


My city, Palma, had a completely destroyed old quarter, nowadays, thanks to the foreigner investors it look absolutely beautiful, and lot of locals complain about that, and for me that is completely hypocrite because locals didn't wanted to invest on those old buildings, so without all those foreigners, our old quarter would still looking like a war zone.

I understand that we need a more integrated cities, but it depends on the government, that should build public housing on every neighborhood and control turistic flats, but private buildings that are restored are a good thing!

Another step towards covering the Ronda de Dalt

The first phase of work to cover the Ronda de Dalt ring road between the Mercat de la vall d’Hebron and the Institut Vall d’Hebron has now been completed. The two lanes affected by the work, one in each direction, are now open to traffic again. The project will help create a calmer area around the road and allow for the creation of a zone for pedestrians and outdoor activities.

The construction of the foundations for the central support wall means the roof will now be able to be built over the ring road between the neighbourhoods of Sant Genís dels Agudells and La Teixonera. The wall was completed on Monday, following two months of work, meaning the two affected lanes between exits 5 and 6 could be re-opened to traffic.

Work is due to resume as from January 2018, with the construction of two side walls on the same section between the Mercat de la Vall d’Hebron and the bridge on Av. Jordà, prior to the roof slabs being put in place. No traffic lanes need to be closed in order to carry out the work and consequently no disruptions to traffic are anticipated.

The project to cover the Ronda de Dalt will help reduce noise, pacify the local vicinity and allow residents to enjoy greater connectivity between neighbourhoods which are seriously divided by the road at present. The characteristics of the new space and the activities which can be organised there will be decided with the participation of local residents and entities via the Ronda de Dalt monitoring commission.
