Engexpor in historic areas

Vibrant and cosmopolitan, Chiado is one of Lisbon’s most emblematic districts, and has always been linked to culture and intellectual pursuits. Today it combines traditions and new trends; it is one of the city’s most important commercial and tourist areas and one of the most desirable areas to live.

Next to Chiado, we find the traditional and majestic Baixa Pombalina, which stands out for its monumental buildings and symmetrical streets. The city’s oldest commercial area is surrounded by Lisbon’s oldest and most typical neighborhoods, including Alfama, Castelo and Graça.

Heading north out of the area, one arrives at the luxurious Avenida da Liberdade. Built in the style of the Champs Elysées, it opened a new era of urbanization and expansion in the city and quickly became high society’s preferred address. This aura of exclusivity remains to this day, as can be seen in the 5-star hotels, luxury shops and headquarters of important companies.

The renovation of these areas has given rise to luxury housing developments; situated in historic buildings, they have now restored all their charm and prestige with an aesthetic where elements from the past make the present richer and more enriching. At Engexpor, preserving the authenticity of these buildings means rigor, dedication, and specialization in a vision that goes far beyond engineering and construction know-how. This is precisely what we have done with the group of buildings that we have restored or are restoring in Lisbon’s most traditional neighborhoods.
