A good part of the future options, of the projects for the development of Seville as an advanced urban region, are located in the surroundings of the banks of the Guadalquivir.
As an axis that articulated from north to south our metropolitan area, the channel, or better, the Guadalquivir channels have become, in the coming years, the main area of opportunity for advanced Seville.
And within them, the Port Free Zone, a highly qualified piece, south of Seville and its Port. The rivers run along territories articulating transitions, mostly harmonious, between different landscapes. And that is one of the objectives of this river of the future that is the Guadalquivir.
The river favors complementarities, natural continuities between some functions and others, between urban and other uses. The Free Zone that we present here is a piece of excellence in a great economic and productive gear: the Productive, Industrial, Innovative, Global City.
An advanced, competent Seville, creator of a wealth and employment that, for this and other living channels, extends from here to the rest of the big city. In short, our river as axis of future, with that attractiveness of the water current to agglutinate, around itself, a good part of the options of an advanced Seville. And the Free Zone is, among them, one of the most interesting to be placed in the World. “
