New Consultatio city in Escobar

Puertos Lago Escobar

Puertos presented its comprehensive proposal
As part of Puertos sustained development, a press conference was held in which the progress of the new city developed by Consultatio in Escobar was shown to the principal media.
Puertos, which has started to be inhabited, opened the first landmarks of its urban proposal. It is a project with a US$ 415 million direct investment from the developer and US$ 2.000 million considering the private investment in houses, apartments, schools and stores.
The Main Square, across from Escobar Lake is the first urban center and meeting point of the city. A 23 meter tall statue by the renowned Brazilian artist Arthur Lescher was installed there. The art piece called La Aguja (The Needle) is the iconic symbol of the new city and is surrounded by a one-storey building on the lake, which includes a restaurant and the first stores.
In turn, an artistic, landscaping and environmental project empowers Puertos’ proposal as an ideal place to live in, with all the urban facilities and in contact with nature.
From an artistic standpoint, Puertos aims at developing a comprehensive public art program made up of different pieces which are to be placed in several city spaces. The Needle by Artur Lescher is the first piece of the program and is placed in the main square. At the same time, finalizing this first stage, the main building has artworks by Gachi HASPER, Tomás ESPINA, Andrés SOBRINO and Alicia PENALBA.
The Landscaping program, directed by the well-known architect Diana Cabeza and an interdisciplinary work team, developed a global concept to perceive and experience landscape through all the senses. On the other hand, Ramos architecture firm designed the city accesses. The proposal was made from an architectonic, topographic and sustainable point of view, with the landscape as background limiting the public and private areas along the way.
From the environmental point of view, Puertos is a city where looking after the environment is a priority. From a landscaping standpoint, native trees and plants have been privileged, as they are naturally part of the place and its community. In this way, spaces were created and adapted to environmental conditions, thus reducing the need for irrigation, minimizing the use of fertilizers and pesticides, reducing maintenance tasks and favoring the conservation of local animal species.
Moreover, Puertos has a 60 has. Reserve bordering the Lujan river, where the original natural conditions existing before the city was developed have been preserved.
The sustainability program also includes a differentiated garbage collection system to minimize the impact and a green building standard program with the purpose of including environmentally friendly design, technology and materials in the construction of houses and buildings. Based on the sustainability rate obtained, houses and buildings are entitled to different benefits.

In an official act with the presence of Uruguayan president José Mujica and Argentine entrepreneur Eduardo Costantini, construction of the bridge that will join Rocha and Maldonado districts was initiated.

From a real estate point of view, it will increase investment in new developments east of the Rocha lagoon.

After six years, joint efforts from the Uruguayan government and Consutatio made the construction of this bridge possible for the benefit of the Rocha community. Saceem, the bid winner, will be in charge of the works.

Construction will take 12 months and will be finished by the summer season 2015/16. In turn, the Uruguayan Transport Ministry will participate in the development with contributions for accesses, asphalt course, signaling, pergolas and lighting.

Installation of the art piece that will be the emblem of Puertos

Arthur Lescher Escobar Puertos

 

In June, a sculpture by the renowned contemporary Brazilian artist Artur Lescher (San Pablo, 1962) was installed in Puertos and it will be the emblem of the new city in Escobar. La Aguja (The Needle), the name of this art piece, was placed in the Central Square of the first public area in Puertos and is the beginning of an art project specially designed for this place. La Aguja is a vertical structure that breaks the horizontality of the predominant landscape. From the surface to the top it is built in concrete, then stainless steel and finally bronze. The structure points at the stars looking for anchoring, thus tracing its own constellation and connecting stars and planets. Lescher gained recognition after participating in the Sao Paulo 19th Art Biennial in 1987, when he presented “aerolitos”. His sculptures have always sought spatial situations where they intend to pass unnoticed as subtle interventions.
