Summary: This work aims to analyze the increase in closed condominiums in the Urubo region of
the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra - Bolivia - based on the understanding of the role of
urban space producing agents, with an emphasis on the market and real estate
speculation and in view of the resulting socio-spatial segregation process. This is done
through the socioeconomic characterization of the Urubo region, related to land use and
the evolution of urban occupation of the area taken as a case study. The construction of
the contemporary Latin American city has generated new urban configurations and
different types of closed condominiums for housing use, almost always financed by the
middle and upper classes in the countries in this context. Closed condominiums are the
object of study, understood in this dissertation as residential developments strongly
driven by real estate sectors aimed at the maximum use of land value, aiming at their
subsequent speculation. The dissertation also seeks, as a complementary objective, to
identify the impacts of the so-called closed urbanization - resulting from the
condominium logic of living in the region under study - and to relate them in urban terms
regarding the scope of the quality of urban life, or even, the level of urbanity of the
region. The research will be developed through exploratory, descriptive and explanatory
methodologies, with qualitative bases and applied to the object of study of the
