Some say that the dotcom boom never matured eough for this area to be the success everyone expected but the area has benefited greatly from the plan and the future looks bright.

The transformation proposed in the 2000 “District 22@” was to take 200 hectares of industrial land in Poblenou and develop it into a modern cluster aimed at innovation and knowledge based industries. The goal was for there to be 5 defined areas of business: Media, high technology, energy, design and medical technology. The overall goal was to make the whole area not just attractive for business, but also to attract and retain the talent necessary for these companies by creating new spaces for living, developing parks, infrastructure, such as the new tram line, and allowing modern housing to appear.

Since 2001 the project has attracted more than 4500 companies including Yahoo! Mediapro, and Microsoft to name a few. For buyers of Sant Marti property the most popular areas to buy and to invest are the Olympic Port, Diagonal Mar and Poblenou.
