The new project planned for Malaga’s port area has been given the green light from city council planners and work is due to start in 2020.
The planned tower will be home to a luxury hotel, with 35 storeys of rooms, conference centres, gyms and spas.
The planning of the skyscraper made took a huge step forward after the city’s Environment Minister gave the project the green light after giving a positive report on its environmental impact on the area.
The project is still due to pass further documentation, as it needs to gain approval from the Spanish Cabinet, as ports are under national jurisdiction. It will also need final permissions from the Junta as it will be over 15 storeys.
The Report stated that, “is part of the urban landscape and the visual impact of the area is already affected by business, industrial and transport activity”, he continues “ it won’t mean any alteration to anything of natural value”.
