New six-tower condominiums will be built in the Sagrada Familia District, in San Josť Province, to house more than 190 impoverished families.

According to the Ministry of Housing, construction for the housing project began next year and is expected to be completed in December 2025.

Some of the benefiting families were squatters who unlawfully occupied unused land in nearby areas where the condominium will be built.

The whole housing project consists of six four-story towers. Each is built in concrete for a total of 192 apartments with two or three bedrooms. Some of the apartments are disability and elderly-friendly.

In addition, the condominium includes parking lots, sidewalks, a playground and even a security officer booth.
