THE CHARM OF LIVING BETWEEN GREEN HILLS.
On the other side of the Pinheiros River, there was an endless land. Away from the center of São Paulo, it was a place for farms, cattle, plantations, and also for holidays. It was beyond the river, that the Englishman John Rudge bought, in the middle of the 19th century, around 700 bushels of land to grow tea, and there he built the headquarters and the chapel of Fazenda Morumby.
And so it was, until around the 1940s, the lands were divided into farmstead's and farms, which were later purchased by engineer Oscar Americano with the intention of transforming the region into a luxurious high-standard residential neighborhood, full of trees with species of Brazilian flora, which he planted to shade his lands.
Thus how the neighborhood of Morumbi was born.
To accompany the growth of the neighborhood, the Oscar Americano group hired architect Gregori Warchavchik to restore the Casa and Capela da Fazenda (listed by CONPRESP).
With the construction of the Morumbi Stadium / Cícero Pompeu de Toledo and the transfer of the headquarters of the state government to the Palácio dos Bandeirantes, it was a cool race in search of land, and Morumbi grew so much that it spread to other areas such as Vila Andrade, Panamby, a neighborhood built to host high luxury buildings, closed condominiums and offer all kinds of services and security, the Burle Marx Park is very green, and continued its journey towards the Real Parque neighborhood.
Today, this is where the Palácio dos Bandeirantes seat the state government, and TV Bandeirantes is located.
