The constructors want to present this development as “a new way of making city”, but the only thing that distinguishes it from other large-scale developments is that the construction began in the midst of the crisis. Up to now, around one third of the13,500 planned homes are already built, but there is only 10% of the expected 40,000 new residents, indicating an important percentage of empty homes. The new residents have moved into an empty neighborhood with no public facilities. A neighborhood in which it will be long before many of the promises made are delivered, if they ever are.
