After last August 19 the Buenos Aires Legislature approve the urban agreement that endorses the IRSA company to build buildings in the Costanera Sur and that it would endanger the natural reserves of that area, the head of government of the Buenos aires city, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, is back in the eye of the storm. Environmental lawyers warn that if the PRO get majority in the Legislature “may privatize”Other spaces.
Enrique Viale, environmental lawyer, expressed his concern on his personal Twitter account where, after the result of the PASO, he announced that “with the new majority that Larreta will have in the Porteña Legislature, plus the votes that Milei’s legislators will give him , they can privatize the Obelisk, or the Cabildo, or a plaza to put up towers (the latter they are already doing) ”.
Worried, the lawyer remarked: “It’s not a joke, it’s serious …”. His last sentence alluded to the vote and the endorsement of the Legislature that gave part of green spaces for the construction of an urban network that costs millions of dollars. For his part, the lawyer turned on the alarm again and stressed: “Currently Larreta manages 39 legislators out of 60 from @LegisCABA (Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires).”
Nevertheless, with 40 votes it will reach two thirds and that will allow “Deliver public land and real estate (a square or historic building), modify the Constitution or the Electoral Code, modify the symbols of the City “explained the lawyer. Through his networks, he made his discharge public and announced everything that the Head of Government can do by having the majority of the quorum.
Costanera Sur: Legislature and business
One of the recent debates that took place in the Legislature with the 36 legislators related to the Buenos Aires government was to pave the way to modify the urban planning regulations of the coastal property. The intention of the IRSA company was to give the Government 67% of the property to install a public park with the aim of obtaining permission to build a kind of “Buenos Aires Dubai” with towers of up to 145 meters with canals and lagoons within the property where a luxurious neighborhood will arise.
