The announcement was made by the Board of Directors of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), who revealed that the premises, which are located on Moll Vell in the capital, will be converted into a meeting centre between the port and city.
Joan Gual de Torrella, the President of the APB, revealed that the new centre will have different spaces to promote the history of the Mallorca’s ports and will “become a socio-cultural meeting point that is open to all audiences”.
There will also be areas reserved for the APB, including a library and meeting rooms for the Board of Directors. An exhibition hall is also planned in the tender, which will exhibit topics of general interest such as lighthouses in the Balearic Islands.
In addition, a bar, restaurant and cafeteria service will be installed on the second and third floors of the building, covering an area of approximately 630m2 and featuring two terraces overlooking La Seu Cathedral and the Bay of Palma.
We at Euro Weekly News understand that the the annual rent of the premises will be €138,871 on a 15-year lease. The building is currently under construction by the development company Acciona, with the government investing €5.5 million on the project.
