Urban infrastructure taking shape at Higuerón West

Urban infrastructure taking shape at Higuerón West

Jun 11, 2018 Construction

With the first two phases of luxury apartments at Higuerón West sold out, the first physical signs of the community are also beginning to take shape. Recent work involved earth moving, which facilitates the initial phases of the master plan that will set Higueron West apart from most residential environments on the Costa del Sol.

The latter involves not only the carefully considered positioning and orientation of the small, elegant apartment buildings, which as a result optimise natural light and views, airflow and also temperature considerations, but also a comprehensive plan for the low-speed roads, walking and bicycle tracks, landscaping, communal areas and extensive natural vegetation zones.

All of this requires infrastructure and planning, which is why Urbania has contracted Hill International – a leading international specialist in construction planning and project management – to help design, plan and implement the master plan and its key elements.


21st century technical infrastructure

The decision to appoint a major global firm such as Hill International is highly unusual on the Costa del Sol, but it is a clear indication of Urbania’s intent to make Higueron West an outstanding community of luxury homes not just in aesthetic design and landscaping terms, but also with regard to the quality and 21st century standard of its technical infrastructure and amenities.

This applies to the electricity, water supply, waste management, the quality and positioning of the roads and pathways within the urbanisation, and also such features as WIFI speed and build quality. The latter will comply with the latest standards for sound and heat insulation, the choice of materials and the latest technical amenities, which include the installation of domotic home management systems. 

The result is a home that is more comfortable and convenient, set within a community that is designed to be in harmony with its natural setting. An example of this is the fact that all the trees that have been removed for construction are being replanted elsewhere in the urbanisation, while in another part of the community we are waiting for the end of the bird nesting season before we commence work.

It’s all part of a commitment to creating a residential community where quality of life and harmony with nature are central elements of our design philosophy.
