Project Summary

Urban regeneration master plan

The project is part of a general strategy introduced by the Mexican federal government for Ciudad Juárez, a city of 1.5 million people on the US-Mexican border, which with El Paso in Texas forms one of the world’s largest bi-national metropolitan areas.

The city is located in a strategic position for drugs and arms trafficking and suffers from increasing levels of violence as the current administration’s efforts to curtail the drug trade are strongly resisted.
