Su historia comienza en 1969 cuando el entonces presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva anunció con gran entusiasmo la construcción del Hospital del Empleado ó de Ochagavía (por el lugar donde estaba emplazado) que iba a ser el más grande de América del Sur, con capacidad de 1200 camas y 84.000 m² construidos. El diseño del hospital se termina en 1970 y comienzan las obras en 1971 durante el gobierno de Salvador Allende con gran propaganda del gobierno. Después del golpe de Estado y durante los primeros meses de la dictadura de Pinochet, las obras fueron paralizadas totalmente y en 1976 se construye el Hospital Paula Jaraquemada para suplir la demanda de la zona sur-poniente de Santiago por lo que el hospital de Ochagavía quedó en total abandono ganándose el apodo de Elefante Blanco:


Durante más de 40 años el elefante blanco estuvo en total abandono por lo que se convirtió en foco de delincuencia, el tráfico de drogas, prostitución y en prácticamente terreno libre para cualquier actividad ilícita, además de que a su alrededor creció la comuna de Pedro Aguirre Cerda, que es una comuna de bajos recursos por lo que siempre fue un lugar estigmatizado que no traía más que problemas a sus vecinos.
Durante esos 40 años nacieron varios proyectos tanto para demolerlo, terminarlo o transformarlo pero por uno u otro motivo nunca llegaron a buen puerto; hasta que el año 2013 fue comprado por una empresa de logística y almacenamiento y empezó a ser transformado en un centro de servicios pasando a llamarse Núcleo Ochagavía:


Fue inagurado el año 2016 y gracias a sus plantas libres se pudo convertir a un uso mixto, que va desde bodegas de almacenamiento y servicios de logística a oficinas, comercio, centros de salud, servicios municipales (hasta la Municipalidad funcionó en el edificio mientras el nuevo edificio consistorial era construido). El terreno anexo será transformado en una plaza cívica para la comuna como parte del proyecto de revitalización.

The new interior works much better with the 1930s architecture

Ummm this is the opposite of revitalization :Oh no:
That street looks way worse after. Why did they remove the nice timber structures? it was such a cosy and charactered street before and those trees and plants and ivy were just beautiful. Now its just wide and generic and boring looking

There were probably many other streets in peru that needed some form of revitalization much more than this did

It wasn't cozy at all. That picture was taken early in the morning. It was certainly crammed at night. With all the bars and pubs open, you could barely walk. The timber structures were removed because the tenants illegally closed off parts of the public street to expand their retail space with the permission of corrupt mayors. Originally, they were only allowed to put canopies and tables, as seen in the black and white photo.

Agree to disagree I suppose. I dont see anything wrong with cramped, in fact I think most roads today are far too wide.I would much rather walk down the street before it was changed.It was reminiscent of streets youd see in old french and italian towns, visually at least. But having read the article it seems it was mostly changed for security reasons which is fine, thats justified then.

I can underastand that street before with those "constructions" looked in some way cosy and had some kind of charm. But on the other side, this type of privatization of public spaces is really something, that should't happen anymore. I have nothing against seating like in the first pic. But once these terraces start to separate from street life, build various palings (Idk how it was in this case in Lima, but they often make it illegally) street becomes less pedestrian friendly. You can walk through street like that but that's all - there's no reason to stay and spend time there.


If it will be revitalized like the render shows, i.e. trees will be plant, benches added and new activities created (like fountain where children can play) I think it will definitely improve the space and open it for people of all social classes.
