The Miraflores Municipality has responded to recent statements made by the Peruvian Chamber of Construction (Capeco) and the Association of Real Estate Companies of Peru (ASEI) regarding sustainable housing projects in the district. The municipality has categorically denied claims that around 100 real estate projects promoting sustainable housing have been halted, describing these allegations as “completely false”.
In an official statement, the Miraflores municipality highlighted that a total of 69 sustainable housing projects have been submitted in the district since the beginning of their administration until January 31, 2024. Therefore, they consider it “illogical” that more projects have been rejected than the number presented. Additionally, in the past year, 197 building permits and 35 demolition permits have been approved, and 53 work approvals have been granted, demonstrating the growth of investment from builders who adhere to the urban planning parameters in Miraflores.
The Miraflores Municipality emphasizes that Ordinance No. 618, which establishes, regulates, and promotes conditions for sustainable buildings in the district, came into effect on September 29, 2023, replacing Ordinance No. 581. All projects approved before that date include certificates of urban and building parameters processed beforehand. Since the implementation of Ordinance No. 618, only two sustainable housing projects have been rejected.
The municipality urges Capeco and ASEI to adhere to the truth and conduct themselves with complete transparency. They reaffirm that their administration actively promotes private investment, always respecting national and municipal regulations, with the sole objective of protecting the residential nature and well-being of Miraflores residents.
It is important to note that the regulatory legal framework for sustainable buildings in the district is voluntary and subject to approval by the Municipal Technical Commission for Buildings.
Thus, the Miraflores Municipality reaffirms its commitment to the promotion of sustainable housing and its willingness to work transparently for the benefit of the community.
