New City Guayaquil

Guayaquil, Ecuador
The City of Guayaquil’s Aeropuerto José Joaquín De Olmedo will soon be relocated outside city limits. As a result, the 240-Ha (593-acre) site presents the city with a unique opportunity to build a New City for Guayaquil. This conceptual master plan envisions bold new development, realigns cultural and public transit infrastructure, introduces new resiliency and conservation measures, and supports a sustainable global agenda on behalf of Ecuador’s most populous city.

This land will be built out into three distinct districts – Marina, Central, and Garden – that comprise the new heart of Guayaquil. Project design goals include an integrated strategy for minimizing potable water use, providing dependable access to clean water, managing storm water run-off, maximizing permeable surface areas, and improving overall quality.

To set the stage for such a transformation, the New City is built on these principles: Re-establishing the site’s value within the urban fabric; reconnecting to the waterfront; Providing fast, reliable, and secure connections between the site and new airport; Introducing a new state-of-the-art Convention Center in the heart of the development; and Creating a unique destination for ecotourism, education, and research.
