RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - A space abandoned for over 40 years, which houses a disused factory in the Gávea neighborhood of Rio's South Zone, is now closer to becoming a place of leisure and conservation. The law that creates the Gávea Sustainable Park was sanctioned this Thursday, July 1, by Mayor Eduardo Paes.
The project, proposed in 2018, was approved by the Rio City Council on June 15. A building for commercial and residential use will be built on the 25,000-square-meter lot on Rua Marquês de São Vicente, near the Gávea . . .
