Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Jo Pugh THE RE­GEN­ER­A­TION of an area in Calpe sur­round­ing the iconic ar­chi­tec­tural work of Ri­cardo Bofill, La Mu­ralla Roja, has com­menced.

The project, cost­ing €469,050, in­cludes widen­ing pave­ments to a min­i­mum of 1.5 me­tres, new street light­ing, and the con­struc­tion of two green spa­ces for pub­lic use, cur­rently used as car parks.

Built in the 1970’s, the eye­catch­ing apart­ment block needs to con­form to newer ac- ces­si­bil­ity laws, to­gether with health and safety re­forms.

The area is an his­toric part of Mediter­ranean his­tory from an ar­chi­tec­tural point of view, and there­fore Calpe town hall is not only work­ing on the restora­tion of the ur­ban­i­sa­tion, but also wishes to re­build the old so­cial club, lo­cated at the base of the cliffs, and build a walk­way from Cala Man­zan­era to en­able dis­abled vis­i­tors ac­cess to an eye-catch­ing part of his­tory.
