Coghlan

Tree-lined streets and affordable properties are attracting younger residents to BA’s Coghlan.

If you blink you could miss it. Especially if you are riding the Li­nea Mitre from Retiro as it rocks and sways through BA’s northern barrios. Fortunately there’s a train station with large “Coghlan” signs that let you know you’ve arrived. But locals and long-time residents still debate where it begins and where it ends, writes La Nacion’s Franco Varise in Coghlan, el nuevo lugar de moda en Buenos Aires.

The one thing not being debated is the neighborhood’s growing popularity and influx of younger residents drawn to the tranquility of Coghlan’s tree-lined streets, relaxed barrio feel and affordable homes and PHs priced in the $100-170/SF range. Nestled between Belgrano, Villa Urquiza, Nunez and Saavedra, Coghlan is one of three neighborhoods that comprise Comuna 12 (including Villa Urquiza and Saavedra).

“Coghlan is the new fertile ground for modern portenos who are wandering in search of their place in the world,” writes Varise. “It all began when someone was passing by and said: ‘This is the fashionable neighborhood to live.’ But why? It’s just that it sounds strange when you hear it the first time, but after a stroll through Coghlan it all starts to make sense.” One local says many neighbors are moving from Palermo, another newcomer says she was sold on the feeling of security. The dead end streets seem to be a deterrent for thieves in need of a quick exit.

Further proof that Coghlan is hot? Electric utility Edenor lists Coghlan as one of the BA barrios where the most new air conditioners were installed last year.
