Puerto Madero
Puerto Madero is the newest neighborhood in the city, originated in the imagination of the best urban planners: cared boulevards, wide avenues and rich offer of restaurants and bars, luxurious hotels and first-rate home buildings (some of them are commercialized directly abroad at nearly U$S 4.000 per square meter.
Take a foot ride to enjoy Puerto Madero or even a ship trip that links this area with the picturesque neighborhood of La Boca. Located between Córdoba and Brasil avenues, this 170-hectare area is a narrow urbanized stripe that connects four docks and a large green space that joins the Ecologic Reserve.
Since its foundation in 1991, the area became the center of millionaire investments.

History

In 1991, there was a project to integrate the port to the city as a continuation of the downtown area. To this end, new arteries were opened and old docks recycled (used in the past as warehouses for ship cargoes brought from the most remote ports in the world). Also, East Puerto Madero was inaugurated, the newest area across the docks that houses three five-stars hotels, several stores and restaurants. There are also dwellings with luxurious-residence characteristics. Both sectors are connected by the Woman Bridge, a fabulous structure completely enlighten at night; a work by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
