Urban planning, urban design.
Location: León, Gto.
This manual for the new urban design of this traditional neighbourhood of the city was coordinated by IMPLAN, the City Planning Institute. After a social, urban and environmental diagnosis of an area of 50has. (500,000sqm) several proposals were done. The main urban line is to give more space for the pedestrian; widening the actual sidewalks and planting new trees were the section allows them. The second line is to incorpore cyclepaths and strengthen public transport. The third one is to improve and create new public space. For the private development, the regeneration has to be done with more density and mix use buildings, were commercial areas remain at ground floor and the new housing and office spaces in the upper levels. Finally for the new urban furniture and signal project, low cost materials were proposed with traditional designs.
