Landy Colón, president of the Cibao Association of Promoters and Builders of Homes (Aprocovici), argues that Santiago is in a very special moment of development, despite the increase of up to 30 percent of homes as a result of the rise in materials .

 

He assures that the real estate impulse that is currently registered in the city has its origin in the efforts of the entity that he directs, when devising and accompanying the municipal authorities in the creation of the Normative Guide for Territorial Planning, which supports the “Santiago vertical”.

Gurabo and La Trinitaria are the sectors of the heart city where more infrastructure projects are currently being developed. Currently being built, the corporate building of the Popular Association of Savings and Loans (APAP), Santiago Center and the towers in La Trinitaria with up to 20 floors.

If one cannot spread out on his land to make money the only option is to go up, There should be a regulation to prevent any building to come close to or be higher than The Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration. Building regulations should require any building over four stories height must have two sets of stairs with fire resistant doors at each level, a fire water roof tank, and an earthquake resistant construction.

I really hope they’re all earthquake proof as the city is right next to a fault zone.
