Town Hall of Madrid Approves Construction of 400 Homes on Land near Barajas

3 May 2018 – Eje Prime

The Town Hall of Madrid is promoting housing in the city. On Thursday, the Town Hall approved plans that will result in the construction of 400 homes, green spaces and other facilities on land owned by Iberia. The plots span a surface area of 54,600 m2 and are located in the district of Barajas, to the south of the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport; they are currently home to some warehouses, owned by the airline.

This land is going to be urbanised by Iberia so that it can be used for the construction of around 400 new homes, green spaces, other tertiary-use buildings and a private facility. The budget for the urbanisation work amounts to €5.1 million and the execution period is nine months.

Specifically, the plans involve eight plots spanning 54,600 m2, of which 23,507 m2 are destined for residential, tertiary and private facility use, whilst 31,093 m2 are earmarked for public use, including for green spaces, road networks, parking and facilities.

The Town Hall approved this project after the Ministry of Development announced an urban development macro-plan on some of Aena’s plots close to the airport, where hotels, logistics centres and offices are going to be built.
