Ruin to be demolished after 10-year wait

ONE of the three blocks of the Las Terrazas building on Benidorm’s Levante Beach was demolished. This comes after more ten years of litigation, negotiations and unfulfilled demolition orders.

Residents and businesses were evicted and the plot fenced off after the building was declared in a state of ruin in February 2000. It is not clear when the rest of the buildings will be demolished as the town hall is still negotiating with homeowners and the power company Iberdola on the relocation of a transformer located inside the complex, which supplies several buildings in the area.

The rest of the demolition will be carried out “in several stages” and that the cost would be “determined by the technicians,” according to Town Planning Councillor Juan Angel Ferrer. In 2009 the cost of the demolition was valued at about €140,500 by municipal officers.
