The center of Florianópolis is rich in history, culture, architecture and human interaction, however, it lacks green spaces and open air spaces. Today, there are few plazas, libraries and convention centers in the region. From this absence, the Promenade of Liberty emerged, a unique multipurpose complex in Florianópolis. An area of 4,336.38 m², with the unprecedented proposal of integrating offices, shops, hotel, space for events, and even a forest and a library open to the community.
PASSEIO DA LIBERDADE: THE CENTER OF FLORIANÓPOLIS HAS NEVER SEEN ANYTHING
Located next to Rua Artista Bitencourt – named after Manoel Joaquim da Silveira Bittencourt, a cobbler who fought for abolitionist causes in the 19th century, when the capital of the state was still called Nossa Senhora do Desterro -, the Promenade of Freedom was planned to be, in addition to a complete and modern multipurpose complex, be an area of freedom and conviviality for both those who work in the Office Tower and the community.
COMPLETE INFRASTRUCTURE AND CONTACT WITH NATURE
The Passeio da Liberdade have 20.466,10m² of built area, in a land of 4,336.38 m², and will have two towers, eight shops and a centennial grove.
There will be 114 rooms divided in 11 floors, two rooms for events and a room for parties.
The tower will have 98 apartments and function room with space for meetings, coworking and trainings.
With two floors and 240 spaces, with the possibility of installation of duplicators, the parking of the Freedom Walk will be an alternative for those who work in the region.
Pedestrian walk, square and library
Leisure is a necessity of the human being, and having alternatives of leisure and spaces of conviviality and rest in the middle of the day-to-day running is important for the well-being and for the quality of life.
In the process of urbanization, the Center of Florianópolis lost many of its green areas and today there are few squares and public spaces of conviviality and leisure, thus, the Promenade appears as an option in the heart of the city and an invitation to the quiet.
The library will have loan service to the community and local reading area. The idea is that there is a resumption of reading habits in such virtual times.
The forest was cared for over a century by the nuns of the traditional Heart of Jesus College (Bom Jesus), which is close to the promenade, which for many years has kept the space restricted to visitation. Now, this area will be open to anyone who wants to spend good time listening to birds and other sounds of nature, like a kind of green oasis in the middle of the city.
