El Poblenou, shares with many other cities across Europe, is that it has a rich industrial history. Factories dominated the skyline through the nineteenth century, powered by the sea and river that lie close by. Though industries waned as the modern and digital age crept closer, the marks of Poblenou's history can still be seen today; historic buildings full of character, and street art on every corner.
More recent developments have shaped the district further. Preparations for the 1992 Olympics saw the creation of new beaches, and further regeneration projects have breathed new life into the city. As time progresses, one of the oldest districts in Barcelona is fast becoming one of the most developed, with investment pouring in from home soil and abroad. All of these factors make flats for sale in Poblenou a highly attractive prospect.
As is the case with any ex-industrial city, there are a plethora of historic buildings scattered throughout Poblenou, many of which are in disrepair or disuse. These are rapidly snapped up by property developers looking to make a strong return on investment, as these sorts of properties lend themselves to modern refurbishments complemented with character and period features.
Both property investors and buyers of second or holiday homes can take advantage of this property boom, creating flats that often see a significant boost in value when refurbished and developed. What's more, this is an up and coming city in which new restaurants, bars and clubs are popping up, taking shape in old textiles factories and other industrial spaces, all of which is coming together to create a city packed with deep and interesting history and culture. This also makes it the perfect space for young couples or working-age youths looking for a stylish base.
