A NEW NEIGHOURBOOD ON THE OTHER SIDE
The extension of Zona Franca, located at the southern side of Gran Via, can also become a way to imagine the future for this area. The project suggests the transformation of a site next to the river side into a neighbourhood well Connected to Bellvitge housing State.
The new district is structured along the sea-mountain oriented streets, i.e., those streets that follows the historic irrigation system of the Llobregat Delta. The towers are placed in-between the hospitals, at the intersection of Gran Via and the new links between Hospitalet and Mercabarna.
From a more general and metropolitan point of view, this option generates large urban spaces north of the Gran Via and a system of new links between Bellvitge and El Prat.
