Urban Forest Landscaping for Residential Development
Currently under development in Lurin (a southern district of Lima), this project designed for Promoción Inmobiliaria del Sur S.A. (PRINSUR) raises the value of a vast sandy desert for real estate development through the installation and maintenance of urban forest plantations. Its main objective is to develop housing projects that offer a high quality of living for future residents and increase property values. Additionally, the successful outcome of this project evidences high yields in the forestry industry and reveals the accomplishments ensuing from socially responsible management, with environmental and business acumen.
Since its inception in 2010 up to this date, 25,083 trees have been installed, mainly of the species tara, eucalypt and olive. A key factor to the sustainability of this project pertains to the reutilization of Sedapal’s treated domestic sewage to nourish these forest plantations via drip irrigation systems. The urbanization of fallow lands in the coastal region has been possible by implementing the most innovative green technologies available worldwide.
