Madrid Nuevo Norte Project is the large-scale urban regeneration of Madrid. This project will improve many people’s quality of life by generating thousands of jobs, creating new green spaces and quality public spaces, designing a new model for public transport and building key infrastructure for the city. The intervention will develop a large empty urban space currently occupied by the railway sidings leading out of Chamartín Station, forming an old industrial wasteland and brownfi elds. This big eyesore splits the north of the city in two, divides neighbourhoods and creates serious traffi c problems. The project opts for an innovative city model, based on the most sustainable town planning standards of the 21st century.
