    Abstract:

    The project describes the urban development of Copiapó city station area, with the purpose of improving a spoilt part of the city and bringing in new leisure and commercial activities linked to the religious pilgrimage to “Cerro de la Cruz”. Two different zones have been studied: the mountain top and the bottom part next to the station. The Urban Project tries to link both ends, bringing more tourism to the station area an offering additional transportation and pedestrian routes. A new linear urban stripe dedicated to leisure and services surrounds the mountain base, linking it with the existing city center.
