Since the beginning of the project the refurbishment of 70% of GFS has been started, under 139 plans for urban amelioration. Said projects will result in obtaining over 3,029,106 m2 of over ground GFS for new production facilities, social housing, facilities and technical services.    

The real estate sector has decisively supported the Project: 84 of the 139 plans approved are promoted by the private sector, of which planning permission has been granted to build 691,291 m2 of over ground GFS for production activities.

The 22@Barcelona project has likewise been warmly received by the business community:  an estimated 4,500 new companies have moved to the district since 2000, an average of 545 per year and 1.2 per day, although the most prolific era was from 2003 to 2006. Of the 4,500 companies, 47.3% are new start-ups (the rest have moved from other locations) and 31% are technological or knowledge-based companies.

As a result, the number of people working in Poblenou has risen significantly.  There are currently more than 56,000 new workers, half of them with university studies, and that number is predicted to reach 150,000.
