Puerto Madero
Although the modernization of Puerto Madero is a topic that still gives rise to debate – as the commercialization of the lots in this zone involves certain dirty government deals from the 90’s – this neighborhood has inarguably been much improved from the time that it was merely a mass of abandoned warehouses lining the river. Today, it is one of the most attractive and exclusive neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The fact that one of the most luxurious hotels of the area, the Faena Hotel + Universe – brainchild of ex-fashion designer Alan Faena, designed by Philippe Starck, and partially financed by Austin Hearst, the grandchild of legendary communications guru William Randolph Hearst – opened its doors in 2004 provides ample proof of the neighborhood’s escalating exclusivity. This neighborhood was finally consecrated with the launch of establishments boasting the finest products on the market, from bars and restaurants to luxurious stores. In addition, the inauguration of the vanguardist cultural center El Porteno – also one of Faena’s projects, that will be designed by Sir Norman Foster and promises to shelter fine artists, as well as designers and writers (opening projected for 2010) – is eagerly awaited.
