Robert Schlaug has documented the housing development Seseña outside of Madrid. The development is somewhat controversial and has been compared to modernist housing complexes meant to raise the standard of living. Most of those built in the United States were housing projects at least partly funded by the government are now infamous for crime and gang activity. Many of them have disappeared altogether, such as Pruitt-Igoe in St. Louis, and Cabrini–Green in Chicago. Hopefully Spain will have more luck with this sort of development style.
This is an aerial view of the complex under construction.
Units are now on sale starting at €65,000 up to €180,000 if you would like to move to Toledo, the middle of nowhere about 40km from Madrid.
