Barcelona: Campus Diagonal-Besòs
The Campus Diagonal-Besòs for 3,500 students and 500 researchers in green engineering gives unique investment opportunities. The surface covers an area of 148,266 sqm of building land above ground level in the north area of Barcelona, allowing social and urban development. The built area will host thirteen buildings, eight of which are for the use of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) – BarcelonaTech and the other five will be for a student residence, institutions and R&D related companies. Construction work is completed on three buildings. In September 2016, 3,500 students and 500 researchers started their activities. Barcelona KEY, being part of this campus, offers a unique possibility to develop an urban space of 53.000 sqm committed to R&D in a quality urban space on the Barcelona metropolitan waterfront. The project is presented in the context of 22@ innovation district, Barcelona and its metropolitan area.
The completion of the first phase of the Campus Diagonal-Besòs gives unique opportunities: The urban development not only allows to use innovative technologies, but integrates higher education, social development and investment opportunities at the same time. The project enriches Barcelona’s urban model and is completely integrated in the Besòs Area, the 22@ innovation district and the metropolitan area.
