Minister Montes highlighted that “we’re happy because we’re sure we’ll comply and we’re doing it, so don’t have doubts about it. We do believe this project is valuable, interesting, and its design has been discussed. This place will have a lot of life, it’ll be nice and pleasant for the athletes, so they’ll feel this space as their own.”

In addition, the Minister of Sports, Jaime Pizarro, emphasized the future use of the condominiums, which will give a housing solution for more than a thousand families through state subsidies. “It’s deeply gratifying and I think we should also assume a relevant part of the legacy of how these projects are developed. These precincts, that are a significant sample of the buildings, is where a lot of athletes’ dreams will be while they try their best to achieve their best performances during the Pan American and Parapan American Games.”

The Pan American and Parapan American Village project has 17 towers, green areas, children’s playground, sport equipment, commercial units, and pedestrian walkway in 6.4 hectares, thanks to a public and private investment of more than US $100 million. During the Santiago 2023 Games the Village will be the operational base of the delegations and it’ll connect with the main competition precincts through the Metro subway (line 6 specifically, Cerrillos station) and special routes in the streets.
