A New Neighborhood

A whole new (and very large) neighborhood is going up in Molfetta. It is located to the south-east of the junction between Via Terlizzi and Via Berlinguer in what used to be olive groves and countryside. Although the loss of nature areas always make me sad, I have to admit that Molfetta really needed new apartments. The building market had been completely blocked for 30 years, driving the prices of those few homes available locally sky high and forcing many families to move to other towns.

The construction has been going on for a couple of years now. Some buildings are completed and already inhabited, while others are still going up. Today's photo shows two completed apartment blocks flanking one still under construction. Imagine the noise, the dust!

Over the next few days I'll show you some of the new buildings. There are widely varying architectural styles set right next to each other.
