The undertaking seeks to bring together public and private efforts involving developments for the benefit of the community, and to contribute to the reconfiguration and consolidation of the urban image of this fast-changing part of the city, in alignment with the existing morphology. 


In order to make its development functionally viable and to bring quality to the collective use of the open and public spaces proposed by the project, road infrastructure works were carried out – the opening of the continuation of Colombes Streetas well as sanitation, lighting and conditioning of the public pedestrian spaces surrounding the area.
