We see a small map and such Stadium in the current neighborhood of Las Rosas. We do a little bit of history with some background: in 1945, the General Commissioner for the urban planning of Madrid and its surroundings, which exercised control absolute on urbanism Madrid, aside from the municipal sphere, which was conditional. The Commissioner acted in a determined way, expropriating between 1948 and 1962 not less than 2. 000 hectares of urban land. This ambitious policy of soil, more than any other in the history of the city, pursuing a multitude of purposes.

The newest era provide industry Madrid, which created areas and industrial estates to the South, in Villaverde, and East of the city, in Canillejas; both were the germ of the present industrial location of the urban region of Madrid. The largest number of expropriated land was for the residence. In the periphery, the claim to initial redeem the suburb in constructive almost of military operations, as in La Ventilla, gave way in the 1950s to an urgent policy of construction of large slums, in which the Commissioner ceded the initiative to other State agencies, such as the Trade Union work of the home or the National Housing Institute. Orcasitas, Entrevias and San Blas are examples of neighborhoods of public housing, which reached a total of 60 for all Madrid. 000 residences between 1954 and 1961. The Olympic village, the heart of the games, constitute the zone where it develops several hundred hectares between the neighborhood of San Blas and the town of Coslada, whose main advantage, according to the valuation of the IOC, is that it is five minutes from Barajas airport.

The transformation of Madrid is the most important in Europe. New urban developments, the recovery of the Center, and new infrastructures will make a completely different Madrid in the next 10 years. The parallelism which we can observe among these districts and the District 22 @ in the development of its construction, death and conversion, is no stranger to the prevailing policies in every socioeconomic and political moment.
