Individual homes in Madrid (5)

5colonias-vivLet’s come back to the inception of this series, the question raised on monday by biblio (66): has there been or not a residential densification in these neighborhoods?. Cadastral data (upper image, with all the subdivisions at the same scale, displaying the number of residential assets by lot) can be misleading, as in some cases built elements are not properly coded and there seems to be a lack of homogeneous criteria (at least from an urbanist viewpoint, just remember cadastral data is used to levy taxes). Sometimes ancillary elements as a pantry are inscribed as separate elements, but no one would say they are dwellings from a common sense approach. Just trust me, there has been some densification, but to have a better measure it will be better to wait until the release of the new census data in december.
