Torrent d'Estadella is located in the Sant Andreu District, in the north-east of Barcelona.

Torrent d'Estadella is an industrial area located in the district of Sant Andreu, in the north-eastern part of the city of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The project area is rectangular in shape, as it was previously used as agricultural land. It is strategically located and seamlessly connected to Barcelona's city centre and surrounding towns. 

The area is close to the Besós River, and two important railway lines.  One of them, La Sagrera - Sant Andreu, is recently covered, creating walking areas on the top. However, these differing levels have created a discontinuous public space. This area is currently being transformed, and has the potential to be a new urban hub, due to its proximity to the future La Sagrera high-speed rail station, the new Camí Comtal and Besòs River linear parks and the Mercedes site.

In the surrounding area, there is a great diversity of urban typologies, including, new housing, developments, industrial areas, the historic centre of Sant Andreu and important infrastructure, such as the Fabra i Coats enclosure. Proposals should seek to preserve industrial activity, whilst seeking new uses for the empty or inactive warehouses to generate additional commercial activity.  The City aims to modernise the existing infrastructure and create a sustainable and energy-efficient environment for all users, such as permanent residents, daily workers and visitors.
