The conflict began in 1996 when neighbors in Bellavista began to find out through a series of rumors that a highway project would cross through their neighborhood. This boiled down to an urban megaproject at a distance of more than 33km.

This area is characterized as being home to artists and bohemians and features a discernible presence of restaurants and nightclubs.
