Without forgetting the importance of the role of Lisbon real estate rehabilitation, Manuel Salgado, City Planning Councillor of Lisbon City Council (CML), believes that “this is the time to enter a new cycle – that of regenerating new areas of the city.”
The future involves, on the one hand, urban regeneration, particularly in “areas outside the historic centre” and, on the other, to foster new housing,” he commented.
“Diversifying the Center” is one of the CML’s objectives for the coming years, focusing on three strategic points in the city, for which proposals are currently under analysis: Praça da Espanha, Pontinha and Lumiar/Paço do Lumiar.
The Praça da Espanha project is studying nine proposals that were submitted for the redevelopment of the area. Pontinha, where the new flea market will be located, is also one of the regions of the city that must consider the necessary development that will follow the market opening.
