Diagonal Mar, a brand new neighbourhood

Almost all the visitors who have stayed in Barcelona for a relatively long period of time have heard of Diagonal Mar neighbourhood. Diagonal Mar and Frente Marítimo de Poblenou - this is its official name - is a neighbourhood that is part of the San Martín district and is characterised by the great sensation of novelty that transmits throughout its spaces. Not surprisingly, the origins of the neighbourhood as we know it today go back to the preparations at the 2004 Forum of Cultures. Today, it is one of the urban areas best appreciated by both residents and investors. Find out why by reading this article.

Why live in Diagonal Mar?

The neighbourhood has been created based on criteria of maximum rationality that have allowed to combine functionality, habitability and optimal connections with the rest of the city. The latter is more than guaranteed thanks to the avenue that gives the name to the area, which leads directly to the heart of the city and beyond (as well as to other major avenues that cross it at some point). It is possible to access the neighbourhood from any point in Barcelona as the return route does not present much difficulty and this works in favour of Diagonal Mar as a residential area. And as a backdrop, the beauty of the Mediterranean is undeniable. 

Thanks to an urban planning system reminiscent of that of the Ensanche district, the traffic in the neighbourhood is pleasant, efficient and safe, with large, well-lit and clean streets. All this has been possible thanks to the increase of the population experienced in the last years and that has led to about 13,000 people habitually residing in the neighbourhood. It is expected that the figure will continue to increase considerably in the coming years thanks to the quality of real estate available in the area, with authentic finishes and a large number of brand new flats.

What services are offered in Diagonal Mar?

In an area with excellent transport infrastructures, Diagonal Mar has a metro stop and different public bus stops, whose lines connect with the main points of the city. At the same time, a good part of the apartment blocks have communal garages, while it is possible to purchase permanent parking spaces separately. This way, you will have no problem parking your vehicle safely. Logically, the security prevailing in the neighbourhood also makes it possible to park on the street.

The green areas are another plus point for Diagonal Mar, which has in its park the main area of recreation and social interaction. It is not uncommon to meet couples who walk with their children or with residents who take advantage of the park to practice different sports in the midst of a very pleasant climate. Another prominent activity highly recommended in the area is to go shopping as there is an ever-increasing number of shops, although the main shopping area is called, the Diagonal Mar shopping centre. Also here are the main restaurants, from the most elegant establishments to the best known international chains.

What is the profile of the resident in Diagonal Mar?

As is evident from all of the above, the resident of the Diagonal Mar neighbourhood isn't categorised, although, as a general rule, a predominance of families and young married couples can be found here. It should not be forgotten that the presence of prestigious educational centres in the surroundings is another reason that pushes many parents to select this neighbourhood to raise their children in. In addition, the proximity of the sea makes Diagonal Mar the ideal place to enjoy both summer and winter.

The attractiveness of the area explains why it is also an object of desire among the foreign public, this being one of the most dynamic groups in terms of its presence in the neighbourhood. As for the more advanced residents, the accessibility of the facilities guarantees exceptional comfort to enjoy their retirement. We are speaking about those people who belonge to a medium-high and high social class.

What kind of properties can be found in Diagonal Mar?

The real estate offer available in the neighbourhood is very wide, highlighting the large luxury flats. The most sought after properties are undoubtedly those with views of the immensity of the Mediterranean, which are usually located in high-rise blocks and with remarkable communal services. In this sense, Diagonal Mar has apartments both for sale and for rent with all kinds of services.

As always, the best opportunities to invest in a property can be found in the catalogue of Engel & Völkers Barcelona.
