The projects will create two thousand new homes in the towers of between 15 and 23 floors high; three are under construction, namely El Pato II, La Térmica and Torre del Río.

The fourth highrise tower is planned for the Nereo zone which is currently made up of two blocks of industrial buildings located between the provincial council headquarters and the Torre del Río site. This area of warehouses is destined to disappear is in the hands of several owners who have taken the first steps towards its transformation.
