Palma: the winner is announced in the competition for ideas for the redevelopment of the Mollet zone

Port de Balears has awarded first prize to a project by the architects Rabassa y Forteza. The new marine promenade will become an axis to separate vehicles from pedestrians, who will once again have a view over the sea.

The arcades at the fishing quay will be integrated into the new building, making a connection with the old ship-building yards.
