Glòries

The amendment of the General Metropolitan Plan includes two locations spread across a total surface area of 201,174m2: the area defined by Carrer de Castillejos, Carrer de Bolívia, Carrer de Badajoz-Independència and Carrer de Consell de Cent; and the plot located on the corner of Carrer de Nàpols and Gran Via.

This amendment, which was addressed by the Government Commission on 13 December 2016, replaced the plan in force, created and approved in 2007 with widespread political and social support; it represents another step in the development of this part of the city and addresses key aspects of the construction of the park, properties and facilities in this area.
