The Mercat of Sant Antoni is reborn

The remodeling works of the Mercat de Sant Antoni are complicated, long and expensive (about 70 million euros) but they are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. They began in 2009 and will not end until the beginning of 2018. The architects Pere Joan Ravetllat, Carme Ribas and Olga Schmid opted for a complete renovation of the square, which only preserves the precious iron structure and the emblematic green facades. So long closed to the public has meant that this Saturday will generate long queues of people who wanted to see its metamorphosis on the occasion of the only open day convened by the 48 H Open House architecture festival. About an hour wait to enter.

Those who manage to enter can see the recovery of the interior courtyards of the market as public squares, creating new meeting spaces, new stops and parking in two underground plants. Of course, it is essential to wear suitable shoes: hard and closed. So neither sandals nor heels.

The archaeological museum

One of the focal points of interest is that Sant Antoni recovers about 30 meters from the 1st century Via Augusta and one hundred meters from the 17th century bastion of Barcelona that have been musealized to make known this archaeological heritage.

The market of Sant Antoni was built in 1882 by Antoni Rovira i Trias, the winner of the 1859 municipal competition convened by the Barcelona City Council to urbanize the Eixample and finally developed following the plan of Ildefons Cerdà. It was the first that was projected outside the walls and is one of the most outstanding examples of modernism. In the shape of a Greek cross and crowned by a large octagonal dome, it occupies the entire city block.

At the front door stands the shield of Barcelona, ​​crowned by a bat. The metal sculpture, typical of the markets of this time, opens a space that occupies the whole block of the Eixample of Cerdà, a surface large enough to accommodate the stalls that supplied the Sant Antoni neighborhood in the past and today.

Barcelona will urbanize the surface of the underground cleaning center of the Joan Miró Park

The Barcelona City Council will redevelop the surface of the future underground cleaning park being built in the Joan Miró park in the Eixample district. The Government Commission has initially approved a project budgeted at 3,6 million euros that foresees to act on a total of 11,400 square meters of the park that remain front in the Tarragona street and its encounter with Aragó and Diputació streets.

The urbanization plans to create a future square designed to become an agora or space for civic meetings around the monument of Joan Miró, with rest areas on the lawn and points of contemplation of the monument surrounded by water. The project includes providing the square with a dry fountain and a pergola to develop activities and protected uses of the sun, which will also be used to install photovoltaic solar panels needed by the cleaning park.

The access from Aragó street will be done through an inclination of the asphalt of the sidewalk towards the agora of the new square. And the entrance from the Tarragona street will become possible through a step of very gentle slope that will approach the sculpture. The work will be developed in two phases, with a total duration of 14 months. The first, which will last seven months, will address the part of the square not occupied by the firehouse and the different actions required in the areas affected by the construction of the new cleaning park, currently under construction. The second, with a duration of seven months, will correspond to the space occupied by the current fire station, and will be carried out once the building is demolished, but with no scheduled date.

The future of the cleaning center


Since April 2016, works in the basement of Joan Miró Park have been underway to build the new technical and logistic center for cleaning services on the left side of the Eixample. It is scheduled to start up in February 2018 with a capacity for 290 workers and 70 service vehicles, which will be located in an underground building of 3,556 m2. It will replace the work centers in Comte Borrell street and partly those in the Alí Bei and Mallorca streets, from where the service is currently provided pending the construction of the new work center cleaning.

The future park of cleaning, therefore, will allow to maintain the proximity and the efficiency of the service, making compatible this activity with the rest of the neighbours, something that did not happen with the one located under diverse buildings of the block between the avenue of Roma and the València and Rocafort streets, that generated numerous complaints for noises and bad smells

Värde buys land in Barcelona from Oaktree and Alza: it acquires land in [email protected] District for 50 million euros.


The US fund has been negotiating since August the purchase of eight parcels of land in the 22 @ district of Barcelona. The floor has a building area of ​​52,000 square meters, more than 90% of which correspond to offices.

The US fund Värde Partners closes an operation in Catalonia in the most tense week of political conflict. The company has finally closed the purchase to Oaktree and Alza Real Estate of a land portfolio in the 22 @ district for 50 million euros. The grounds, known in Barcelona as Can Ricart, have 52,000 square meters.

Värde signed the purchase of these lands on October 2, where he will build office buildings and houses. The lot belongs to what remains of the historic Can Ricart textile factory. In total there are several blocks included in a grid between the streets of Bilbao, Perú, Marroc and Espronceda, next to the Central Park of Poblenou.

Alza Real Estate, presided over by Tomás Alarcón, took possession of these lands in 2009, when they acquired them from the Ricart family, owners of the old factory. The real estate company says on its website that the area has a total buildability of 51,710 m2 for office buildings with a maximum height of 13 floors. A small part is planned to be dedicated to residential lofts and parking.

Hard Rock leads the race for the hotel in Port Fòrum


Two projects compete for accommodation of about 500 rooms in Sant Adrià de Besòs


[...] According to QID Studio, one of the architects' offices that designs the project: "At the moment there are at least two initiatives on the table," said Artur Fuster, the owner of the office.

In any case, the study confirms two data. "The project is underway, yes, and it will be a major intervention," he remarked.

[...] "There would be an intervention in a land of about 30,000 square meters, the best in the area, unaffected by the hotel moratorium in Barcelona and easy to build.It is not a work between walls in the city.For the price of the land, - 500 rooms - would be 140,000 euros each. It is not crazy ".

[...] It should be remembered that the plot of land in front of the marina of Sant Adrià de Besòs has been the object of several brands. First it was speculated with the arrival of Marriott to the zone.

Then, SB Hotels was the one that probed the possibility of acquiring the land. In addition, it should be remembered that the chain that runs Marc Aladó already operates the Diagonal Zero, an accommodation located at the southern end of the iconic artery of Barcelona.

The plot is owned by 50% of the Tegui family, founder of the well-known brand of automatic door openers, and a Barcelona real estate office. Both have agreed to sell for a price that would exceed 20 million euros.

Amazon maintains its commitment to Barcelona: it will build a new logistic center in the Zona Franca


Amazon redoubles its commitment to Barcelona. The group has rented a plot of land from the Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona to make it the fifth logistics center of the US group in Catalonia. This is a 20,000 m2 site on which a 9,300 m2 warehouse is being built, according to Expansión.

The US group has paid 7.6 euros of rent per square meter per month to promoter Goodman, according to sources close to the operation. Amazon has not confirmed or denied the operation, which is expected to be signed during the third quarter of the year.

The decision to locate the new logistics center in Zona Franca is due to the willingness of Amazon to establish itself strategically near the city of Barcelona, ​​taking into account the proximity as a key factor for the distribution of last mile products.

Around the warehouse where the US company will be installed, Goodman plans to build another one of approximately 10,000 square meters, whose tenant has not yet been found.

With this, Amazon already has five logistics centers in Catalonia (El Prat de Llobregat, Castellbisbal, Martorelles and Eixample), and among its next plans is the installation of a research and development center in artificial intelligence, which will occupy more than one hundred people.

How the walls of the Model prison will tumble

The former prison will become a green lung, opening up to the public and in particular the residents of the Esquerra de l’Eixample neighbourhood. The transformation will be agreed by local residents and entities, revitalising the area and prioritising the creation of green space, affordable public housing and local municipal facilities, while preserving historical heritage and memory. A road map will set out a calendar for action to be taken and investments to be made.

After decades of demands from local residents, on 10 January this year a deal was signed with the Government of Catalonia to close down the Model prison, which will become municipally-owned as from 2018. An urban renewal period now begins to turn a site which for years was a closed space with its back to the neighbourhood into a revitalised space which is open to citizens. The Deputy Mayor for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility, Janet Sanz, stressed that this is a historic moment: “We’ve managed to make the closure of the prison a reality and now a world of possibilities open up to the neighbourhood, the district and, ultimately, the city”, she noted. “The Model is now an uncut diamond, a large space, which can be used for many things and which can transform an entire neighbourhood”, added Sanz.

Future uses


The transformation of the site will be based around four main themes. Firstly, a boost for nature and green space, with at least 14,000 square metres of greenery (equivalent to more than an entire block in L’Eixample). Secondly, the construction of 150 affordable flats, as set out in the Right to Housing Plan. Thirdly, the construction of municipal facilities, due to the historical lack of public land in the district.

Finally, the site will include La Model Espai Memorial, a venue for cultural activities and exhibitions on the history of the prison. “The building has high memorial density”, stated the Commissioner for Memory Programmes, Ricard Vinyes. “Hardly anyone knows that this was a women’s prison from 1955 to 1963”, he noted. Vinyes also listed some of the aspects which will turn the space into a memorial centre: “Signs for individual visits, organised guided and themed tours, an athenaeum of memorial entities, a documentation centre and a memorial transmission area”.

Calendar


Since the deal to close down the prison came into effect, the process is under way for it to change hands in January and become municipally-owned, with contracts for services, security and maintenance all in the process of being transferred. Studies are also being carried out to assure the future uses of the space and a public debate is being prepared to agree on them

Once the Model becomes municipally-owned, a second stage will get under way, with the lower floors and other suitable areas being made available to neighbourhood entities for social, cultural and community use. These immediate uses will run simultaneously to the public debate, in order to build in demands from local residents and entities and define uses in keeping with the requirements of the regulations on municipal participation, serving as the basis for updating the master plan for La Model, drawn up in 2009.

In 2019, the definitive transformation stage will begin and in 2020 work should get under way. During this term of office, a total of 4.9 million euros will be invested in the project.

The neighborhood of Sant Antoni will recover 26,000 square meters for the people

In 2019, neighbors of Sant Antoni will recover 26,000 square meters that are now used for vehicles for citizen use. It is the horizon marked in the Superilles program for one of the densest neighborhoods of the city and that is implanted according to a process of participation carried out with the neighborhood. The first step is the transformation of the crossing of the Comte de Borrell and Tamarit streets into a large public square of more than 10,000 square meters.

The actions will prioritize the spaces of seating and leisure, increasing the urban green in front of the private mobility. In fact, this is the criterion that governs all the interventions that will be carried out in the neighborhood. As stated by the Deputy Mayor of Ecology, Urbanism and Mobility, Janet Sanz: "The city demands a democratic redistribution of available space, reducing the traffic of the most polluting vehicles, to cover the needs of the neighborhood" .

The Sant Antoni Market, an opportunity for the neighborhood


The second phase of the intervention will act on the spaces adjacent to the market building, which will also become places of citizen use with a total area of 6,000 square meters. On the other hand, the Market of Sant Antoni enters the last six months of works, with the adaptation of the environments and the construction of the marquees that will surround the building and that will serve as headquarters for the Sunday book market.
