Although it was not different from other developments, local and regional authorities tried to present this project as “a new concept of public policy in building a city”. They promised 8,500 new homes and public facilities that would meet the needs of the 30,000 new residents. However, very few of the facilities have been constructed, and only around half of the homes, of which many are empty. The slogan during its promotion was: “South Móstoles, a city of future”. Yes, but a distant one.
