The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), together with more than fifty of its stakeholders, has started to reflect on the innovative initiatives taken by the organisation.
The Port of La Savina now has a new building for use by the Formentera Fishermen’s Guild paid for by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB). The work was completed this January and was received today by the APB. This process ended with the visit of an inspector from the Ministry of Transports, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA), who was able to verify, after a tour of the new facilities, which the work carried out complied with the project.
The Fishermen’s Guild will manage this space as a concession, which will soon be operational.
It should be noted that the new location is closer to the fishing pier and to the area for spreading and repairing nets to facilitate the fishermen’s work. The project has also been approved by the Consell de Formentera and the APB.
At a cost of €1,040,910, the new building is triangular in shape and consists of a ground floor and a walkable roof with a pergola. It consists of a private area (ground floor premises for the fishermen's association and technical premises) and a public area, which is the roof that can be accessed by pedestrians. Access is along a ramp to a true vantage point for visitors and residents.
The building faces the sea, creating an emblematic object in the port of La Savina with two functions: to create highly functional equipment and provide the population with a public space for meeting up.
One of the objectives of this project is to give continuity to the entire perimeter of the port and to integrate the new building as a promenade. This urban landmark will therefore be able to convert the land area of the port into part of the urban fabric of La Savina.
