A stop for the vertical "ghettos" of Central Station confirmed the Environmental Court of Santiago

The Environmental Court of Santiago rejected the claim made by Realtor Toro Mazotte 115 S.A., against the Environmental Assessment Service (SEA), so it will not be possible to build two 38-storey residential towers in the Central Station district.

Throughout the judgment, the Court examined technical aspects contained in the project evaluation, such as the demographic increase in the area of ​​influence; parking lots and bicycle paths, and street and sidewalk capacity, determining that the real estate company would not consider all the projects identified in the area of ​​influence by the bidder.

"In the opinion of the Court, this could imply a possible underestimation of the potential effects of the project, which underlies the issues contained in the EPA resolution," says a statement released by the environmental body.

In that regard, the Court drew attention to the performance of Health Seremi, which left its ruling pending, "while the tenderer does not correct errors, omissions or inaccuracies in the regulatory compliance review and vice versa."

It is worth mentioning that Realtor Toro Mazotte 115 SA went to the Environmental Court of Santiago, after the unfavorable Evaluation Committee evaluated the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) of the real estate project, the same position as the SEA executive director, who rejected the administrative claim of the company.

The project, located at Toro Mazote Street, at the Central Station, provided for the construction of two 38-storey towers with three underground levels and a total of 1,078 apartments, 195 parking lots, 305 wineries and commercial establishments, among others.
