Abstract [en]

The intention of this project is to create a Sustainable Urban Prototype for the typical Mexican growing city.  Located in the heart of San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, The "Centrito Valle" business center has the potential to become an area full of life, that offers a great place to live, work, entertain, socialize, shop and workout. Eight main issues were identified and were tackled by this proposal: 1. Insufficient Parking, 2. Lack of Public Space, 3. Need for Collaborative Planning, 4. Investment Plan, 5. Lack of Incentives 6. Traffic, 7. Obsolete Resource Management, and 8. Landscape Design. A new institution was formed: EBC Eco Business Community, aiming to balance between the social, economic and ecological aspects of society. This institution combines specific strategies between the models of BID: Business Improvement District, and Environmental Governance.  EBC has the intention to organize the currently seven hundred different plot owners, to join and guide their efforts towards an integrated sustainable development.  EBC will propose a set of guidelines and ideas that will help create a sustainable Urban Prototype that could later on be multiplied into other growing cities in Mexico.  The outcome of the proposal clearly shows the possibilities and potential of how this area could be completely transformed.
