An­other 24-storey ho­tel for Calpe

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

GROUNDWORK has com­menced on the planned 296-room, five-star ho­tel on the front­line of Calpe beach.

The new ho­tel will be built on an empty plot at La Fossa, lit­er­ally just a stone’s throw from the sea. With 24 floors, it is also guar­an­teed to block the ex­ist­ing un­in­ter­rupted sea views of those liv­ing in the pri­vate apart­ments be­hind it.

The project be­gan to take shape be­fore the cri­sis, back in 2006. An in­ter­nal dis­pute, then the eco­nomic re­ces­sion post­poned the construction of the new ho­tel. Now, ready to be­gin construction, the ex­ca­va­tors have moved in.

It was only a cou­ple of months ago that a sep­a­rate com­pany had tried to ex­pro­pri­ate the land due to it ly­ing dor­mant. This seems, how­ever, to have prompted the owner of the site to make use of it, and soon yet an­other five-star ho­tel will emerge on the shore­line of Calpe.
