The Minister of Territory, Ester Capella i Farré, and the mayor of Barcelona, Jaume Collboni i Cuadrado, have agreed to build at least 1,700 affordable homes in Barcelona. The City Council will transfer the plots to the Institut Català del Sòl (INCASÒL) for 75 years, and it will invest some 221 million euros in the construction.
These homes join the initiatives to increase the public set of social rentals in Catalonia. The first phase includes 637 homes with an investment of 82.81 million euros. After construction, award criteria will be established, reserving 30% for young people under 35 years of age. Monitoring commissions will be created to supervise compliance with the agreement and carry out operational monitoring.
