San Isidro financial or business district is a great opportunity area, with a great image and economic potential, but at the same time, physically and functionally divided into two by an urban gap with “Paseo de la Republica” highway running north-south. It is a very important urban problem.

The main objectives of the intervention are:

  • To knit the city together. Ease mobility and transversal accessibility.
  • Equip San Isidro Financial District with open spaces in order to create a “functional attraction pole” on the new areas.
  • Have a great number of pedestrian areas, such as parks, squares or public spaces.
  • Reduce or eliminate the environmental impact Via Expresa has on the area.
  • Keep Via Expresa´s functionality.
  • Economically sustainable intervention.
