Desarrollos Metropolitanos has provided a full spectrum of services within the building construction industry, with construction and managerial expertise being their chief asset.  However, first hand practical knowledge continues to prove invaluable to owners who may choose to benefit from additional services, such as Pre-Construction Consulting, Design Build, and Cost-to-Benefit Analysis.  Its unique work system highlights the importance of people in the handling of every project.  The Company is meticulous in the selection of specialized subcontractors, and in assigning the most capable engineers to every job, according to their experience.  This speaks to their belief in the importance of people in achieving the final product.



Since the beginning, Desarrollos Metropolitanos has been prominent in the construction of hotels, residences, and commercial and industrial projects.

We have been in operation in Puerto Rico for over 52 years, with over $2.2 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 successively 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. The new generation in ownership includes Julio's son, José R. Vizcarrondo, who serves as President and CEO, Ismael H. Sánchez, as secretary, and Francisco J. Colon, as treasurer, who  maintain the same vision and passion that established Desarrollos Metropolitanos as one of the most well known and respected general contractors on the island.

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


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 job sites. Apart from our safety officer, we outsource safety consultants to visit our projects on a weekly basis. We have also 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 to continuously improve our safety records.  Our Project Managers and Superintendents enforce a ZERO Tolerance policy for job-site safety infractions and are always supported by management.  At all Desarrollos Metropolitanos’s projects, SAFETY COMES FIRST.
