The reform project is being worked on with the neighborhood and commercial community of the market and the environment, and includes the main request of the neighborhood: increase the greenery of the public space by about 1,500 square meters. The entire space around the perimeter of the market will be reclaimed, as will, more clearly, the area of Mare de Déu dels Desemparats Street, where a public space for living and neighborhood activity will be created.
The opening of a passage on the façade of Torrijos Street enables a large lobby area for temporary activities of all kinds. In general, the neighborhood textile association will get 6,000 square meters to carry out activities.
Get back the glorious cover image to be made compatible with a space for energy efficiency. Ceramic pieces and flush photovoltaic panels with a colorful treatment alternate, allowing energy to be generated without the need for large covers or visible, aggressive pieces.
The distribution of spaces in the new Abaceria Market, which will return to its original location, is on the ground floor with areas for food and non-food establishments, a mezzanine, and three underground floors. On floor 1, there is a self-service establishment, and on floor 3, spaces are reserved for the logistics of entities and neighborhood associations.
Changes in direction due to works
On the occasion of the commencement of works, there was a change of direction in Travessera de Gràcia between Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla and Carrer de Roger de Flor. It will be used to install a traffic light and pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla and Penedès/Puigmart. Also, Ciudad Real Road will change direction between Travessera de Gràcia and Calle de Ramón y Cajal.
We will change the route of bus 114 and, in particular, bus 39 (if the pedestrian crossing and the service crossing are made at Torrent de l’Olla). I know they will extend the two-way bike lane in Travessera de Gràcia until Calle de Montmany.
