Thus, the new public space brings the infrastructures, which have made Madrid a great capital, closer to its citizens, through a quality, modern, ecological and transparent exterior space, emblems that the company represents.

have already begun.
The project, carried out by Batlle i Roig Arquitectes, has as main objective to merge Barcelona with the Baix Llobregat through a low aggressive intervention over the surroundings. An initiative that wants to promote sustainable transport, reduce pollution and promote the health of people.
The path, with 880 meters long, will start in Cervantes Park (Diagonal) and will consist in 100% bike friendly tracks which will combine differentiated spaces for pedestrians and bicycles.

Via Célere a reality.
Via Célere has promoted this residential project with two primary premises: a real quality in the architectural proposal and an almost unprecedented commitment to energy efficiency. An Energetic Class A building, concerned with the environment and above all, designed to provide the highest quality experience to the user.
