Reviews

As long time residents of San Francisco we initially became curious about Marvila after reading about Prata Riverside Village, the sprawling new mixed-use project designed by famed Italian modernist architect Renzo Piano. Then we discovered it’s beautiful and breezy location on the Tagus waterfront, the new green space and bike lanes that lead both north and south along the river, and the walking distance rooftop craft breweries, small family owned restaurants and quirky galleries and shops. In less than 30 minutes I can ride my bike into central Lisbon, or get in the car and in about 30 minutes be at the pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches. Marvila may have been discovered by the media and urban pioneers, but it’s still very much a work in progress - authentically gritty with many decaying factories, warehouses and houses. In five or ten years, Marvila will likely be unrecognizable, for better or worse. - Jon, August 2021

It’s a cool area for the art scene 😉 - Carlos, November 2020
