22@ District nowadays
22@ Barcelona’s project is building a new compact city, where the most innovative companies co-exist with research, training, and tech transfer centers, as well as housing (4,000 new subsidized residences), facilities (145,000 m2 of land), and green areas (114,000 m2). This new city model coexists with the neighborhood’s industrial heritage thanks to the Industrial Heritage Protection Plan. This plan is written jointly by 22@Barcelona and the Barcelona City Council. It should be noted that 114 elements of architectural interest have been preserved (like chimneys of old factories).
If you like modern architecture, you definitely cannot miss a walk around this neighborhood.
