The Playa Times Riviera Maya's English Newspaper - - News In Brief - BY JOE MAL­DON­ADO

Two years af­ter con­struc­tion was stopped, the firms Ale­hel and GIM be­gan work­ing with the tourist pro­ject Kanai, which com­prises four big ho­tel com­plexes.

This was con­firmed by Ed­uardo Moren­tín Ocejo, gen­eral di­rec­tor of Sol­i­dari­dad’s En­vi­ron­men­tal and Ur­ban Plan­ning depart­ment, af­ter in­di­cat­ing that the con­struc­tion per­mits had been ap­plied for.

He com­mented that rep­re­sen­ta­tives of in­vest­ment groups have an­nounced they would be­gin the pro­ject soon as pos­si­ble. Park Hy­att, W Re­treat, St Regis and Au­berge are the in­volved par­ties, and will in­clude an ini­tial in­vest­ment of $200 mil­lion dol­lars.

It is es­ti­mated that when com­pleted, the com­plex will gen­er­ate 3,200 di­rect jobs; the first stage will be ready in 2018. The W Re­treat will have 180 rooms; the Saint Regis, 136 rooms; and the Park Hy­att, 224; this pro­ject also has an am­bi­tious beach res­cue pro­gram, and will be part of what is known as the Re­gional En­vi­ron­men­tal Sys­tem Punta Bete-Punta Maroma.
