1,030 people visited the Maritime Signals exhibition at Portopí Lighthouse in 2020.
Today, the Chairman of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) met the Mayor of Palma, José Hila, to share and discuss issues and projects relating to the Port of Palma. This is the APB Chairman's first official meeting since he took office on 26 September 2020.
During the meeting, both representatives showed their willingness to continue working together and coordinate the different initiatives planned for Palma, including the project to redesign the seafront promenade, which is still being studied. For the Mayor, "this is a major initiative for Palma that will transform the seafront, break down the existing barriers and bring the city closer to the sea."
The APB Chairman, Francesc Antich, has announced that the JAMLET-TYPSA joint venture has already completed the project for the building work, which will cover a surface area of 169,010 square metres. The estimated budget for this initiative is €43 million.
Last May, the APB and the City Council reached an agreement on the management of the seafront promenade in Palma, which is pending signature, after approval by the Ministry of Finance. Once the agreement has been signed and the building project has been completed, the works, which are expected to start at the end of 2021, can be put out to tender.
