Sevilla is creating land for new homes. Last Thursday, the board of the Urban Planning Department at the Town Hall of Sevilla unblocked urban development projects that will allow the construction of 3,000 homes.
According to ABC, the three areas of the city where these projects are located include: the plot of the former Cruzcampo and Abengoa factory in Nervión (land owned by Heineken); the plot of the former glass factory in Miraflores; and several unused plots on Avenida de las Ciencias in Sevilla Este.
According to the forecasts set out by the Town Hall, work may start on the first developments at the beginning of 2019. The main plot corresponds to the former Heineken site where 1,900 homes are going to be built (800 of which are going to be subsidised properties).
