Spain’s El País has an article on Villa 31, government-owned land in Buenos Aires, without sewers, or public utilities, occupied by squatters since the 1930s, 600 feet away from La Recoleta, Buenos Aires’ priciest area:
Buenos Aires mayor opens office in city’s most notorious slum. Horacio Rodríguez Larreta is heading a project to bring better living conditions to Villa 31
The city of Buenos Aires is undertaking a complete overhaul of the area, a project that will cost €400 million, of which €170 million are being paid by the World Bank. Authorities are even going to move the freeway route.
At least the murder rate has decreased from 30 murders in 2015 to none this year so far.
