WELCOME TO BARRIO LA PINADA
An extraordinary eco-neighbourhood for families. A place that is healthy, alive and where one forms part of a dynamic community. A place where the small things that make life special become important. A place we design together.
That our children again can grow up playing on the streets
That we may see more green and less grey
That we may use our resources more intelligently
That we may be able to help one another more
That we may be healthier and be more active
That we may create more moments of joy together
A family neighbourhood
A place where children can again grow up playing on the streets outdoor and in an environment that is care-free, safe and surrounded by nature. A place that fosters independence, curiosity and creativity.
A place where children, parents and grandparents can live side-by-side and an extensive range of leisure, sport and culture is offered for all ages. A place that favours a balance between work and family life, offering for example, collaborative and inspirational co-working spaces.
A vibrant and lively neighbourhood
The benefit of having commercial and living services for the whole family on the foot of your doorstep, so that time is saved while commuting. A vibrant neighbourhood with a dynamic atmosphere full of activities for both young and old.
A neighbourhood surrounded by nature
24 hectares amongst pine trees that neighbour 300 hectares of rural land that forms part of the “La Mola” park. The result – a healthy environment of vast green spaces surrounding each house, park, green corridors,urban farms, green wall…
A sustainable neighbourhood
The intelligent use of finite resources (water, energy, waste) through the reuse of water, nearly zero consumption of energy, the generation of renewable energy and a circular economy that considers the lifecycle of materials. The implementation of shared economy concepts, shared resources and synergies between neighbourhood and school. Providing neighbours with smart mobility solutions that respect the environment.
An educational and collaborative neighbourhood
An environment that stimulates learning for both children and adults, encourages collaboration, participation, continued improvement and the trial and incorporation of ideas, concepts, technologies and innovations. Especially those relating to emerging businesses and school projects.
A neighbourhood that improves our society and business environment
We seek to steer project expenditure towards providers, and responsible social and environmental solutions by including social terms in the project’s management that for example, foster the employment of disadvantaged groups. Additionally, we aim to maximise the project’s impact on the development and growth of innovative companies, entrepreneurs and local talent. As a result, our adventure aims to make important contributions towards the improvement of our society and its surrounding business fabric.
OUR INSPIRATIONS, what about YOURS?
The project is located just 10 minutes from the centre of Valencia and close to important residential and commercial areas, as well as economic hubs and educational centres. Valencia has around 300 sunny days in the year.
Integration of an innovative school
September 2018 will mark the inauguration of the second “Imagine Montessori School” in the neighbourhood – a school currently operating in the Valencia’s Alfauir neighbourhood. The school fosters curiosity, autonomy, entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, the pleasure and excitement of learning and respect for the environment so that each child’s talent makes them happy and contributes to the progress of society.
The school will act as a community and a source of activities, sharing its spaces and resources with neighbours. In turn, the neighbourhood will be seen as an extension of the school’s learning process, becoming a place for students to develop their projects.
Additionally, special attention will be placed on concepts such as recycling, the water cycle and clean energy. The conservation of green zones will be encouraged so that they may serve as recreational areas for students, families, residents and visitors.
