Colegiales

Lo que hoy conocemos como el barrio de Colegiales era el predio de vacaciones de los alumnos (o colegiales) del Colegio San Ignacio, cuya extensión llegaba a lo que hoy es Villa Ortúzar y Chacarita. Hoy es el barrio con mayor calidad de vida de Buenos Aires (teniendo en cuenta su nivel adquisitivo en una porción de espacio relativamente chico) y es conocido por su Mercado de Pulgas, renovado recientemente, por el nuevo Distrito Audiovisual, y por ser barrio de influencia de la zona de productoras audiovisuales de contenidos audiovisuales y canales de TV. En su arquitectura, lo más notable de los últimos años fue la recuperación de los Silos de Dorrego, reconvertidos en residencias, del conjunto de monoblocks frente a la Plaza Mafalda, y de los caserones normandos de la zona que bordea con Belgrano, frente a la Avenida de Los Incas.

What we know as the neighborhood of Colegiales today was the vacation center of the students (or “colegiales”) of the San Ignacio College, whose extension covered what we also know today as the neighborhoods of Chacarita and Villa Ortúzar. It’s ranked as the most livable place in Buenos Aires (large amount of wealth in a relatively short amount of space) and it’s known for the Mercado de Pulgas (flea market), the new Audiovisual District, and because it gets a lot of influence from the zone of the private companies who produce commercials and advertising, and the TV studios. When speaking of architecture, it is widely-known for the recycled Dorrego Bins (now with residential apartments). Also, for the residential complex of monoblocks in front of the Mafalda Square and the mansions of Norman architecture (northern France and southern UK), just in front of the limits with the Belgrano neighborhood, next to the Los Incas avenue.
