Málaga Hotel Endorsed but Controversial

Sponsored
The “destination hotel” planned for Málaga, Spain, is being backed by the Qatar-based Al Bidda Group and is expected to require investment of close to EUR120 million (US$129 million). Architect José Seguí opted for an elliptical design to offer resistance to the strong westerly winds that buffet the port.

Suites Málaga Port was endorsed by the city council in September 2016, but, more recently, those opposing the proposed 443-ft.-tall tower in Málaga, Spain, have made their voices heard. Their complaints are its potential “unsustainability and visual and environmental impact,” according to G3 Newswire. The initial endorsement was only for the 35-story hotel, but a casino could also be part of the overall proposal. It is to have 352 rooms, 485 parking spaces, and a spa, shopping center, conference center and swimming pools. Euro Weekly News reported the new hotel could create an estimated 1,300 construction jobs, with 350 additional jobs when it opens in 2020.
