After the repression of the city by the Narco kingpins was finally suppressed... Escobar was killed in 1993... a phenomenon called the Medellin Miracle began and continues today... and there are plans well into the future. The underpinnings of this true miracle is INFRASTRUCTURE... clearing the worst slums and abandoned land, creating services for the disenfranchised in their barrios, and integrating them into the life of the city through a transportation network which is the newest, most modern, cleanest, least expensive to use, and most efficient in the world.
Here is a sampling of fotos about the modern infrastructure of Medellin, a model for the world.
SANTA FE MALL. Built on an impossible hillside, this ultramodern commercial center serves as a true city within a city, a small town of retail, entertainment and restaurants at the end of the El Poblado Golden Mile. ONE of SIX NEW MALLS... three more under construction.
