The emphasis is on ensuring that San Nicolas maintains its element and influence that makes it so unique while taking advantage of its natural support, such as the ocean, to enhance the whole area.

What stood out during the many rounds of consultation with stakeholders was that they all wanted the revitalization to lead to an investment climate for San Nicolas while at the same time improving the quality of life of residents. The design encompasses an area with all elements needed to live, recreate, and undertake work in a safe and beautiful environment and with access to various facilities and activities around.
