The visit to the development, within the framework of this day, is free of charge but requires prior registration. This can be done from January 20 online on this page or by phone at 604 513 870 (from January 20 to February 2, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.).

A public rental park with quality and sustainable housing
The new development at C. Lluís Borrassà is part of the efforts of the Barcelona City Council, through the Municipal Institute of Housing and Renovation (IMHAB), to expand the stock of public rental housing throughout the city through new construction.
In this sense, only in the district of Sant Martí, where this new development is located (specifically in the Besòs i Maresme neighborhood), this public park has been increased by about 2,000 apartments since 2015, when the Barcelona consistory began to implement a clear policy aimed at boosting the rental market.
This boost is also carried out by applying quality and sustainability criteria as a priority, with special attention to the impact on the environment and energy savings. In the case of the Lluís Borrassà development, the building has an A energy rating, the most efficient of all categories, and operates with aerothermal energy, an innovative technology that provides a renewable and clean energy source in its energy consumption. Two clear examples of the sustainability criteria applied in the building, as well as the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roofs.
The building has 54 apartments spread over 10 floors, as well as sports equipment on the first floor and a basement parking area with a total of 42 parking spaces. Access to the hall is through C. Lluís Borrassà, while the equipment is accessed through C. Salern. The building also has a communal space for the neighbors, on the fifth floor, as well as a terrace.
