The building consists of five blocks, with a ground floor to be used for a public facility still to be defined, and six floors for the flats. Each floor has ten two-bedroom flats, one one-bedroom flat and one flat adapted for people with reduced mobility.

The flats are distributed as follows:

  • 20 flats for applicants under the age of 35.
  • 17 flats for people from the surrounding neighbourhoods (La Marina del Prat Vermell and La Marina del Port).
  • 7 flats for single-parent families.
  • 2 flats for people with disabilities.
  • 5 flats adapted for people with reduced mobility.
  • 2 flats for women victims of gender violence.
  • 15 flats for the general quota.
  • 4 flats for families from the Emergency Board.

The building was constructed with environmentally friendly materials and follows sustainability criteria to achieve near-zero consumption. It is designed to maximise solar gain and cross ventilation. In addition, 30% of the roof will be green.

Construction began in May 2021 and cost 11.1 million euros.
