Initial Approval Given to Metrovacesa’s Plans to Build 1,345 Flats in Benimaclet

6 August 2019

31 years after the project was initially presented, the Valencian government has taken the first step towards authorising the construction of 1,345 homes in the neighbourhood of Benimaclet. Now, Metrovacesa must submit its plans to develop the area, where a change in planning is taken for granted. The municipal government must subsequently authorise the number and possible distribution of the homes, as well as everything related to public facilities.

The developer had already presented a project with towers of up to 30 floors, in the area near Avenida Catalonia Avenue and Calle Emilio Baró. An area for orchards of similar size is also in the plans, as requested by local neighbourhood associations. Even so, those same associations are requesting a decrease in the number of homes and a change in the planned distribution.
