Welcome to Barrio La Pinada

The first sustainable neighborhood co-created by its future inhabitants

An extraordinary neighborhood for everyone. A place where you can be part of a community. A place where everyday things that make life special matter.

1.000 homes

30 hectares

More than 2.000 trees

Limitless smiles!

A family neighbourhood

 

A place where children can again grow up playing in 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

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 industry ecosystem.

Together we make it possible

Barrio La Pinada was born in 2017 with the objective of co-creating the first sustainable neighborhood made in Spain. Since then, more than 400 future neighbors took part in the co-creation process guided by more than 20 experts in different disciplines. Together we have defined the spaces design, an efficient management of resources and community wellness.
