The spatial impact of globalization was a major objet of analysis for Milton Santos, pointing to the fact that economic flows entailed different levels, intensities and orientations. Moreover, Santos distinguished hegemonic flows from hegemonized flows, where in the first case are fast and effective, and in the former far slower. This gramscian approach is useful to analyze Megaprojects in Latin America and particularly Santa Fe, in the western part of Mexico City, as a corporative development project inscribed in global hegemonic flows. Displaying a different speed than the rest of the city while developing in time into a corporative and real state hub, Santa Fe reveals itself as a device of economic power in the midst of a distant, impoverished and unrelated horizontality to global flows.
