Parla Este will be more than 20.000 inh. It has a 25% of total population now.
Parla Este (Parla East) is in Parla, a metropolitan city of 110.000 inh. in Madrid Metropolitan Area, it's one of the most humble & it has lots of inmigrants (Latins, sub-Saharan Africa, Romanians, Bulgarians, Chinese, Moroccans...)
Parla has tram only for the city, it conect with the metropolitan train... The tram crosses the new neighborhood Parla Este.

Thanks! :eek:kay:
Yes, Madrid have lots of sprawls and I hate it, I don't love very much the PAUs (Parla Este is a PAU) but it's not bad... The badest of new PAUs is there are few shops in some years, probably in 10 years it's a neighborhood with lots of life and shops... But today the most people are in the park and they're in the bars areas of Parla Este

I located this locality or development site on Maps Google. It's amazing how many cluster localities like this there are in the Greater Madrid metro area. The more peripheral ones are like small satellite towns that are completely or partly isolated. Some you can tell will merge with each other and the continuous Madrid urban area. But some--especially the more distant ones--seem like they will remain isolated for a very long time. But the Metro reaches some of these which is good. The Cercanías regional rail reach some of the others.

But again, there are a lot of localities/satellite towns like this on the periphery. Although I located a few big single-family neighborhoods or localities (Rivas Urbanizadas & La Moraleja), most were rather small (Marisiera, Puerta de Hierro, La Cabaña, Somosaguas, & along the A6 near Majadahonda) and ALL seem to be big, rich homes with swimming pools. In other words, you don't see the much larger number & percentage of medium-class detached, semi-attached or row single-family house neighorhoods like you see in London, Berlin or Greater Paris. Just look around the outer parts of London, Berlin & Greater Paris and then the same around Greater Madrid. I mention those 4 cities because they are Western Europe's biggest urban areas. I think this is part of the reason why Greater Madrid is more compact than those other 3 urban areas. Madrid maintains a very high-density throughout much of its urban area compared to those other 3. Interesting difference. Are single-family houses (either detached, semi-attached or rowhomes) largely discouraged there?

Pavlemadrid, are all the buildings shown new developments? Some look quite modern and fresh, but others are dull and 70´s looking.
Yes... All the blocks are news. Some are really ugly and others are relatively nice.
In all the new PAUs (amazings neighborhoods) of Spain there aren't many people in the street, but usually they're very connected with the centre of the city (Madrid or Parla in the neighborhood) and have at least one mall. The malls do hard the commercial live in the new neighborhoods... :(
