Valparaiso (Chile): citizens opt for the Parque Barón project

Some 11,344 people voted in the “Imagina el Muelle Barón” competition organised by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning, and the Municipality. They were invited to choose from a shortlist of three proposals for a future “Promenade of the Sea” to be developed on a 10.9 hectare site owned by the Port.
