Benidorm seafront blemish finally to be razed

LAS TERRAZAS: Last block standing – but not for long.

BENIDORM’s eyesore on the Levante Beach will soon be no more. Las Terrazas, a huge corner plot bounded on three sides by Avenida Europa, Avenida del Mediterraneo and the seafront Paseo, can at last be cleared.

The complex of low-rise apartments, built in the Sixties using low-grade cement, was affected by aluminosis and condemned in 2000 although demolition did not begin until last year.

The apartment block housing an Iberdrola transformer was left standing after the utility company and property-owners disagreed about its removal.

Each party claimed the other should pay until Iberdrola said last December that it would meet the cost in exchange for a new 25-square metre location for the transformer.  

Almost a year later a definitive agreement has finally been reached, announced Urban Planning councillor Vicente Juan Ivorra.

The community of owners has voted unanimously to provide space for the transformer and the site can now be totally cleared.
