Green Areas

GREEN ZONES AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE


When concluded, close to 70 hectares of new green zones will be integrated in Alta de Lisboa, in an area of intervention of 300 hectares.

 With the regeneration of vast green areas, such as the Parque das Conchas and Quinta dos Lilases, and the construction of new urban green parks, such as the Parque Oeste (Parque do Vale Grande) and the Parque de Calvanas, Alta de Lisboa presents an excellent relationship between the green areas and housing, a flowing and sustainable form of urbanism, where structured plant life is part of the building and leisure areas are perfectly blended in the urban mesh.

When concluded, close to 70 hectares of new green zones will be integrated in Alta de Lisboa, in an area of intervention of 300 hectares.

SUSTAINABILITY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

The construction and development of the Alta integrates economical, technical, environmental and social aspects in a balanced manner.

 

Environmental Certification. The future starts here. 

The principles which support the construction and development of the Alta de Lisboa Urbanisation Plan integrate economical, technical, environmental and social aspects in a balanced manner. Alta Lisboa is an impressive project of urban development, including over three dozen smaller projects. The application of eco-efficient practices will contribute to the transformation of Alta de Lisboa into an ideal setting for current and future generations to live in harmony with the environment.


Here the energy sources are renewable.

Alta de Lisboa represents cutting edge technology together with the use of the most recent trends in sustainable construction and the use of renewable energy sources.  Within this framework, it is Alta de Lisboa’s objective to apply the Leader System (Sistema LiderA), a brand associated with the Instituto Superior Técnico, to the project’s entire area. The environmental sustainability certification of the full Project is already underway, along with the energy certification of current and future buildings.


Reduction, Recycling and use of solar and wind energy.

SGAL, in partnership with the Lisbon City Council, is preparing a set of measures that will promote the reduction of energy and water consumption in public and private spaces, the recycling and use of natural resources, such as solar and wind energy and rainwater for use in buildings and public spaces.
