The project is developed by the company Promotora Centro Comercial Ciudad Paraíso S.A.S., formed by the association of Canales Desarrolladores S.A.S and Construcciones Técnicas Santamaría S.A., construction companies with more than 30 years of experience in the sector, specialized in real estate projects of Urban Renewal, housing, industry and construction and operation of shopping centers.

The project in general is committed to sustainability by applying and evaluating measures supported by a Bioclimatic system such as the incorporation of LED lighting, natural ventilation to reduce energy consumption in mechanical air conditioning and a more efficient architectural façade in its colors, which allows less heat gain in its interior spaces, with sanitary appliances with efficient faucets with low water consumption, among others.
