The north of Buenos Aires, it was historically the zone of the city most estimated to live and certainly for real-estate business. The best constructions, the most luxurious towers, the projects of more resonance were predestined to have one point of reference in the city, the north.
On the other hand, the south after the yellow fever epidemic exiled all the wealthy families that were living in the areas surrounding San Telmo in the middle of the 19th century. Little by little was losing the charm, furthermore in the southern part, where there was an industrial pole that was used as base to the big factories of Buenos Aires and the surroundings. With these precedents, the south was devaluated compare to the lucky north.
For some years, the south is generating another interest, Puerto Madero probably has been the key to put attention and to see that beyond the Belgrano Avenue there is much to do, for construction and new urban options.
The situation we commented in previous post, about the north in relation to reach a plateau in terms of construction is turning the south in the main protagonist of the next years. The relocation of the civic center and the construction of new subways from north to south are showing that it is time of develop the south part of the city. New and important real estate business will be news in short or medium term.
