Puente de la Mujer

Buenos Aires

IN SHORT

Since the beginning of the late eighties, Buenos Aires began to take interest in urban planning development strategies and particularly sought to revitalise the city's run-down port area, the Puerto Madero. Named after the engineer Eduardo Madero, who proposed the construction of the port in 1881, the area was already idle by 1925 when a new port was built to the north. Various proposals sought to revitalize the area, but it was not until 1989 that the Corporacion Antiguo Puerto Madero formulated a complete redevelopment master plan. Currently, the 170-hectare site is being transformed into a new commercial and residential center and tourist area.
