Since the beginning, we have been prominent in the construction of hotels, residential, commercial and industrial projects.

We have over 46 years of operations in Puerto Rico, and over $1.6 Billion USD of construction work to our credit.

Engineers Julio E. Vizcarrondo Jr., Milton Miró and José A. Vizcarrondo founded the Company as a corporation in 1970.  Their goal was to carry out general construction operations as a succession and independently of the real estate and project development activities handled by its predecessor, Metropolitan Builders, Inc.


In 2000, a new generation of professionals joined the team, always keeping in mind that same vision and passion that has made the Company well known and respected as one of the top building companies.

As this new breed of engineers pushes the company forward, original partners Julio E. Vizcarrondo Jr. and José A Vizcarrondo remain active and serve in the Board as key elements of continuity, providing their experience and expertise to every new project undertaken.


The most important thing we’ve learned from our lifetime of quality work is that before moving a single brick, building the perfect plan ensures a durable finished product.

Our workmen safety policy in a priority in our jobsites.  We have partnered with our local PROHSA agency in a collaborative agreement to visit our projects on a frequent basis.  This has helped in our effort to keep up to date with new regulations, to assure that we do not miss any employee exposure and continuously improve our safety records.  Our Project Managers and Superintendents enforce a ZERO Tolerance for jobsite safety infractions and are always supported by management.  At all Desarrollos Metropolitanos’s projects, SAFETY COMES FIRST.
