Eleven millionaire pieces of land that were going to pass to the City remain in the hands of the Nation: what are they

The national and Buenos Aires governments signed an agreement this Wednesday for 11 million-dollar land that had been ceded in 2019 to the City of Buenos Aires and will finally remain in the orbit of the Nation.

The process for the recovery of the 86.7 hectares had been initiated by Alberto Fernández, when he instructed the State Assets Administration Agency (AABE) in 2020 to initiate legal proceedings against the administration of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta.

This is one of the fronts opened by the current President against the management of the head of the Buenos Aires Government, in parallel to the discussion for the co-participation amounts.

The properties had been ceded during the presidency of Mauricio Macri to complete the payment of an international loan signed by the national government to finance part of the construction of the Paseo del Bajo.

The Nation transferred that debt to the City, but also the land for it to sell and pay for.

But that transfer never materialized, because the Nation, already with Alberto Fernández in the presidency, stopped the transfers to the City.

This Wednesday, finally, the agreement to return the properties to the national sphere was signed by the Minister of Public Works of the Nation, Gabriel Katopodis;

by the president of AABE, Eduardo Albanese;

and by the Minister of Treasury and Finance of the City, Martín Mura.

The Ministry of the Interior and the Vice Chief of Staff also participated in the negotiations.

Among the City's land that returned to the Nation's sphere are eight buildings located in the Mugica neighborhood and its surroundings;

the Mercado de Hacienda, bounded by Directory avenue, Murgiondo street and Eva Perón and Lisandro de la Torre avenues;

one located on Jerónimo Salguero street between Au.

Presidente Arturo Illia and down Salguero street and the one on Corrientes avenue

between Dorrego avenue and Humboldt street (around Estación Villa Crespo)
