Formerly composed of ranches and farms, in the middle of the 20th century, affluent Santiagoans started to move here from downtown. From the 1970s on, the area east of Providencia started developing into a business hub, eventually it was connected to downtown by the metro and today it has become the collection of high-rise office and residential buildings that is unofficially known as Sanhattan. Being the city's new financial district, its name is made up of Santiago and Manhattan.
