La Bordeta is a quiet, straightforward and popular neighbourhood for middle class and hardworking citizens.

These apartments are ideal for singles or couples, and the more spacious apartments are perfect for larger families. There is redevelopment work being done to the old Can Batlló textile factory, and there are plans to build several new and modern apartment buildings, preserving parts of the façade of the old factory, which would give them an architecturally interesting, industrial look. Along with this project, the rest of the old factory property will be redesigned as a large green area, that will provide the neighbourhood and neighbors a space for leisure and tranquility. It will be the perfect space for sports, walking, playing and chatting with neighbors. Once the project is finished, the neighbourhood will definitely benefit from a magnificent family area. Public transport in this part has already improved a lot, as there are currently several bus and metro lines, and a train stop for the Ferrocarril de Cataluña, the Magòria-La Campana stop, which connects Plaza España with several municipalities in the province of Barcelona, such as Olesa de Montserrat, Martorell, Manresa or Igualada.
The neighbourhood of La Bordeta has some interesting sites to see, such as the old Can Batlló factory, which was an old, industrial complex that housed a textile factory. The factory was built at the end of the 19th century, and it was the work of engineer Juan Antonio Molinero. It is also considered a Cultural Asset of Local Interest. An important redevelopment plan is being executed at this site, that will consist of constructing apartments while preserving the façade of the factory, and a large urban park, as well as important municipal facilities, such as the Consellería de Medi Ambient i Habitatge (Ministry of Environment and Housing). If you want to rent a house in a quiet neighbourhood, close to commercial areas, such as those in the neighbourhood of Sants, with affordable prices and good connections, La Bordeta is an option to consider, since it is next to interesting areas such as Plaza España or Plaza Ildefons Cerdà.
