How to choose a neighborhood in Buenos Aires for the purchase of the properties? Part II
How are the buildings and apartments?
If you are thinking of how are the streets of your new neighbor going to be, I can share with you some few things:
Recoleta: Tourists use to call it the “Little Paris”, but it also has British style buildings. Here you will find roomy & classic apartments, wooden streets, and lesser apartments per floor. It is one of the most valuable areas of the city.
Palermo: It is one of the main districts, so it has traditional houses & buildings, parks & squares. Because of its wideness and different attractions, some of its districts have been recalled Barrio Norte, The Old Palermo, The Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Las CaÃ±itas.
Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood: They are part of Palermo Neighborhood, so they have traditional houses and renewed PHs, which are some kind of large apartments with many rooms and high roofs, sometimes with more than a floor, and stairs on the yard. But also, there are new developments coming.
Barrio Norte: This area takes some blocks from the streets of Palermo and Recoleta, so it has something of both.
Las CaÃ±itas: Las CaÃ±itas is an area between Palermo and Belgrano which has been increasing its popularity thanks to its high lifestyle standards, its fancy attractions and the good security on streets, probably due to the high amount of military dependences around. Streets have classic buildings but mainly new developments with modern apartments and Lofts. Streets are wooden and buildings use to have lesser apartments per floor than in other popular neighborhoods.
Belgrano: Along with Palermo, there are the largest residential zones. In Belgrano R (Residential Belgrano), the neighborhood has the kind of families and houses you could usually find in Recoleta. It has residential buildings, tile wooden streets, parks & squares.
Puerto Madero: Just like the London’s Docks project, the docks of Buenos Aires have been renewed and represent the latest architectural trendy. Along the streets, owners drive their selves to the skyscrapers, the renewed buildings and condos, or await for the new developments coming.
The place is meant to be a dazzling neighborhood, even as much as the exclusive Recoleta.
San Telmo: This is one of the oldest districts of Buenos Aires, once spread from the dock’s edge on tile streets. The first neighbors built their fancy buildings around, which has been renewed nowadays to become PHs apartments in most chases.
La Boca: This is another kind of cultural neighborhood in Buenos Aires, built as well for the first neighbors who were part of a rather more popular class. Some people even say Tango’s history born there. Today its buildings have also been renewed yet with a particular style, so streets are splashed of colored buildings and condos, right away from the river.
Pilar: This is the area of the country houses, with the American buildings style. Pilar born once as a little town near Buenos Aires, but it has been taken by the city throughout the years. Along with other traditional surrounding neighborhoods like San Isidro, Pilar are chosen by those who look for safety streets, gardens with flowers, trees and quietness.
