Proposed criteria for the definition of an eco-neighborhood in the town of Leganés

Overview of the project boundary

Leganés is currently facing the urbanization process in a major sector of the city, with the objective of creating of a definition for sustainable development criteria based on a series of Urban Sustainability Indicators and the implementation of that definition in the city. A technical instrument panel has been designed, which established the criteria, indicators, and constraints in the form of guidelines and management parameters.

The Project proposes the establishment of criteria guiding the design of the new development from a systemic point of view and pursuing a diverse and efficient integration into a consolidated core of Leganes. The guide panel is structured into seven main sections: urban morphology, public space and the variables of comfort, mobility and services, urban complexity, the urban metabolism, urban green space, and social cohesion.

The environmental and social objectives for the new neighborhood are divided into four key areas: compactness, complexity, efficiency, and stability.

The proposals include the creation of a compact neighborhood connected to the existing fabric, the revitalization of public space, creating a center of economic activity attractor, the reorganization of the networks of mobility, self metabolic or improving social cohesion.
