Project Description

The intervention area of Vale de Santo António links the river Tagus with Penha de França, its southern limit being less than 15 minutes walking from Santa Apolónia railway and Metro station (Blue Line). It is the largest urban rehabilitation operation in Lisbon, after Expo 98 and Alta de Lisboa, and is approximately 2 km from the Castle of São Jorge.

This area was initially intended for the development of housing for a high purchasing power segment, taking advantage of the huge potential of panoramic views over the river Tagus and its proximity to the historic centre of Lisbon.

The transformations that will be made here aim to offer the best urban quality to middle class families, with accessible prices and a high level of public spaces, including an urban park, shops, services, child care and school facilities, as well as cultural and sports facilities. It will undoubtedly be one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Lisbon.

This area is in the civil parishes of Penha de França, Beato and São Vicente, between Avenida General Roçadas, Alto de São João and the river Tagus.
