The Madrid City Council has initially approved the urban development project for the site of the former Clesa factory in the district of Fuencarral-El Pardo, according to Inmaculada Sanz, the municipal spokeswoman.
The project, by Fuencarral Agrupanorte, a company owned by Metrovacesa, has a budget of 2.2 million euros and is expected to take one year to complete.
The intervention will involve adapting the surroundings of the old Clesa building for public use when it is put into service. At the same time, it will provide the neighbourhood with a new green space.
Specifically, the actions contemplate the creation of a paved walkway that will border the factory and connect with Francisco Sancha Street. This promenade will be developed along its route accompanied by trees and landscaped areas and will include a children’s area and a number of recreational areas.
The total surface area of the area is 38,000 m2, of which 19,570 m2 are for tertiary services, 10,380 m2 for green areas, 7,000 m2 for public services, 600 m2 for rail transport, and 360 m2 for public roads.
