Roc Boronat 102
During the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, Poblenou was the epicenter of Catalan and the Iberian industry.
Surrounding the extensive cluster of factories stood primarily working-class residential areas. When the industrial buzz passed, the neighborhood fell into a state of abandonment, and after a period of decay, the district underwent a dramatic transformation.
Many artists and young professionals have converted the former factories and warehouses into lofts, galleries, and shops. Art & Design schools and studios have also opened, making the area known for its creative outlook.
The massive @22 plan sets to convert Poblenou into the city’s technological and innovation district and increase leisure and residential spaces.
THE OFFICE DISTRICT
@22 is the corporative name given to an urban renewal area in Barcelona’s formerly industrial area of Poblenou.
Its aim is to convert Poblenou into the city’s technological and innovation district and increase leisure and residential spaces.
It is part of one of Europe’s biggest urban regeneration schemes, still ongoing.
