Around 1850, with the beginning of industrialisation born the L'Eixample area thata was designed by the city planner Ildefons Cerdà.
Cerdà had the floor plans of American cities as a model. Cerdà saw the streets with wide and generously extended crossings (Passeig de Gracia has six lanes), to highlight the crossings were blocks to the chamfered corners.
The blocks are all square and have a big yard, but most of today is built. From the original idea Cerdàs, there is plenty of green for the residents to provide very little remains.
1859 was the controversial development plan approved by the town council.
The middle part of L'Eixample is often called 'Quadrat d'Or', golden square, describing the elegance of this area.
