In this paper, we expose a reflection about the dynamics of production of contemporary urban space, since the historic second enlargement of Montevideo. In particular, we are focusing on research a complex perspective that allows us to overcome the dichotomy between deterioration and gentrification. First, we do a brief contextualization. Then, we reflecting about the phenomenon of deterioration in consolidate urban zones, questioning about his sense and significance in the everyday dwell. Later we problematize the notion of gentrification, considering possible alternatives since emergent practices and analyzing the historical process of the zone, since different agents have intervened on his configuration. For last, we considered attempts for produce public spaces since urban policies in the last time like a way to promote the right of city. We add final considerations about the qualities of the Latin-American urban territorialities.
