The institutional presentation of the Madrid Nuevo Norte project took place on Friday, 27 July. The project, which will be developed on 235 hectares in the north of Madrid, will be a milestone in urban regeneration, sustainable mobility and job creation for the capital.
The event took place at Palacio de Cibeles, which houses Madrid’s City Hall, and was attended by the mayoress, Manuela Carmena, the Minister of Public Works, José Luis Ábalos, and the president of DCN, Antonio Béjar. Also on hand were the authorities from three public administrations and representatives of all political parties.
The Madrid City Council Delegate for Sustainable Urban Development, José Manuel Calvo, hosted the event, which he opened with a detailed, technical description of the project. Calvo stated that “the City Council of Madrid is firmly committed to this project, to innovation and sustainability, to creating a fairer, more balanced and more sustainable city,” emphasising the quality of this new public space. “We have achieved a cutting-edge project, a state-of-the-art project, a benchmark for the 21st century Madrid that we all want,” said the Head of the Urban Development Area.
