Madrid Nuevo Norte addresses the main urban challenges of the coming decades, including environmental responsibility, talent retention and sustainable employment.
This initiative will create a healthy environment to live and work, where getting around on foot or bike will be easy; an environment that will further the cultural values of Madrid.
Madrid Nuevo Norte’s urban design tackles the significant challenges cities will face in the coming decades. Madrid’s pioneering urban regeneration initiative takes into account aspects that were overlooked in other urban developments, putting Madrid at the forefront of state-of-the-art urban planning. This city model combines economic development with urban sustainability, designed to ensure the well-being of the people who will live and work in the area and all Madrid residents.
Sustainable mobility is at the heart of Madrid Nuevo Norte. The project was designed to make it easier to live, work, access health and educational facilities, shop or enjoy leisure and sports activities without travelling long distances. Its streets, with large public spaces, are meant to be walked. All basic daily needs will be available within a walkable or cyclable radius. Thirteen (13) kilometres of cycleways will help connect the new development to the surrounding neighbourhoods.
