*The "Expansion" as the Eixample location is known as in some parts, was designed outside of the city center by Ildefons Cerda in the second half of the 19th century. But instead of attracting all classes to the area as Cerda had envisioned, Eixample became a neighborhood that the wealthy flocked to set up residence. This could be due, in part, to the fact that his original plans were not followed.
