The proposed site is a municipal market located on a 1,880 sqm plot in the popular district of Usera and enjoying a good connectivity by public transportation. Bidders should make proposals including the revitalization of the market on ground floor and the development of new uses in the rest of the site, with expectations for innovative activities, social economy and local development.

The proposed site is a local market located on a plot of 1,880 m2 in the Orcasur neighbourhood, in the Usera district.  

Situated in the south of the municipality, in the inner metropolitan ring of Madrid and well connected by public transport. It is a highly vulnerable area listed as an “area of opportunity” in the Strategic Plan for the Urban Regeneration of Madrid, because of its potential for regeneration and transformation.

The object of the tender is the building of the market at the centre of Orcasur. Candidates may also opt to extend the proposal to the neighbouring building, which is owned by the Ayuntamiento de Madrid (City Council of Madrid) and is currently part-occupied by neighborhood associations.

Candidates must propose a project that includes the regeneration of the market on the ground floor, new activities can be introduced on the other floors. The redesign will involve the relocation of the main entrance of the market, which will be accessed through Plaza del Pueblo, allowing activities to extend into the plaza and revitalizing this public space.

The main goal is essentially environmental and social: it is to create facilities that benefit the district population, integrating Orcasur locals, generating new job opportunities, and supporting local entrepreneurship, social enterprise and solidarity.

An innovative idea is sought for the transformation and social regeneration of this vulnerable neighbourhood.


Expected program
The city of Madrid expects to receive proposals that keep the traditional market on the ground floor, while proposing complementary activities on the upper floors, in order to regenerate this place that plays such an important role in community life.
