Behemoth Residential Communities Leave a Comment / Lifestyle / By Jaime When you hear the term “residential community”, what image do you get? Maybe a gated community with a few houses and nice gardens, or the apartment building where you currently live? Let us show you what some developers had in mind… El Ruedo, Madrid. 1,300 inhabitants in one block. A socialist dream of concrete. Torres Blancas, Madrid. Same architect as El Ruedo, but after a marathon of Mad Max and Blade Runner movies… Supracomunidad La Esperanza, Madrid. 18 towers, more than 3,000 inhabitants. Famous for generating its own heating with a huge system. Hacienda El Rosario, Sevilla, Spain. A proposed group of blocks with over a thousand flats, which would be the biggest in Spain. Includes a huge 33 thousand square meter park in the middle, swimming pool included, much needed with 40+ degrees in the summer. Going global, things get flashy. Town Square Dubai, by Nshama developers. 31 million square ft., over 3,000 units and climatized environments. And the winner is… Clifford Estates, Guangzhou, 500 hectares with population of 160,000. The father and mother of all residential communities, catered for expats.
