With an action area of almost 300 hectares, Madrid Nuevo Norte is the most important urban regeneration project both, in the country and at an international level.
A strategic action for Madrid, avant-garde and sustainable, which places the quality of life of people at the centre of design, will generate wealth and create employment.
A 24- hour-a-day city model, where you can live, work and enjoy leisure and necessary services, with large green areas and amenities.
With the aim of collaborating in the opportunity that this project implies for the development of the capital, Arup’s work included the Distrito Castellana Norte consulting for sustainability, urban innovation and mobility conditions.
A new concept of urban sustainability
The project includes the Paseo de la Castellana extension, the main urban axis of the Spanish capital, the obsolete industrial land regeneration, the urban integration of hydraulic, railway and road infrastructure systems and the conversion of Chamartín into a transport hub, the core of high-speed rail. All this comes with a strategic location, 15 minutes from the airport, at the junction of the main business hubs of Madrid, with excellent connections at national and international level.
The project also foresees the construction of a strong business district around the Chamartín station, accessible and with a powerful sustainable mobility strategy, aimed at boosting Madrid's competitiveness, strengthening the city's economy, attracting investment and talent, as well as generating employment.
In short, a project that will position Madrid at the forefront of international urbanism.
