The Mayor of Málaga wants to build a 40 storey hotel in the port.
The Partido Popular included the plan in their election manifesto in the last municipal elections held in May 2011.
On Monday the Mayor of Málaga, Francisco de la Torre, took advantage of his first meeting with the new president of the port authority, José Sánchez Maldonado, to put the plan for a 40 story 170m high hotel to be located on the new levante dock in the port.
José Sánchez Maldonado was previously Professor of Public Finance in Málaga University.
The project is inspired in part by a building in Barcelona and the municipal workers already have a design which the Mayor described as ‘distinguished’.
There may be some problems ahead as the new President of the Port, José Sánchez Maldonaldo, is in opposition to the Partido Popular.
