In 2025 Santiago’s Civic District has become the city’s most popular district, attracting public clerks, small business and city dwellers in an inviting and unique public environment. The area’s newest attraction, Bulnes Sky Loop, part of a larger sustainability project for making the Civic District a “cooling island” has effectively doubled commercial and green spaces along the Bulnes Axis. Also, it provides direct views into the public institutions’ inner workings/meeting rooms. The Bulnes Sky Loop is set to become a symbol for the country’s renowned transparent administrative process.
