History of Madero Port
The city of Buenos Aires had a problem accommodating large cargo ships, as per Puerto La Boca, because the shallow river did not allow for direct docking. Instead ships were moored away from the shore and passengers and merchandise were unloaded onto barges and ferries for transport to the pier.
In 1872 started the construction of docks and the tanks”Las Catalinas”.

History of London Docklands:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_of_LondonPort of London, at one time the
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World%27s_largest_portworld's largest port. They have now been redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use. The name London Docklands was used for the first time in a government report on redevelopment plans in 1971 but has since become virtually universally adopted. It also created conflict between the new and old communities of the London Docklands.
During 19th Century port of London busiest in the world. Surrounding the docks were many industries using imported goods and high-density, poor quality housing (typical old inner-city area).
In the 1950s-ships become bigger; unable to reach London’s docks.
By 1970s, area became derelict, with few jobs, few services and poor living conditions. Many people forced to leave area to look for work + better quality of life. The was because traditional jobs in docks were lost (manual, unskilled, unreliable and poorly paid) and most housing was substandard-lacking basic amenities (services e.g. water, sewerage, electricity..) and located in poor-quality environment.
In 1981, the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC) was set up to try to improve social, environmental and economic conditions of the area.
LDDC was given 3 main tasks:
IMPROVE SOCIAL CONDITIONS BY creating new housing, creating new recreational facilities and improving shopping facilities.
IMPROVE ECONOMIC CONDITIONS BY creating new jobs and improving the transport system (to and within area).
IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS BY reclaiming derelict land, cleaning up the docks, planting trees and creating areas of open space (people like parks and peaceful green surroundings).
