Three-hotel development in Alvor on 46 hectares

construction2Two Portuguese property development companies and a Spanish hospitality company have announced a project to construct three hotels with a total of 411 rooms in the parish of Alvor, Portimão.

One of the entrepreneurs connected to the project is Miguel Pais do Amaral, through Top Building, which is fronting the deal.

The environmental impact study of the project, which covers a total area of ​​460,000 square metres, is under public consultation until March 15.

The project consists of a tourist development with three hotels totalling 11,500 square metres with 411 rooms between them.

The various developers came together because they owned separate adjacent lots in the area near Praia João de Arens.

Astronow, MI Estoril Invest, Areia Feliz, Top Building and Prainha have entered into an agreement to develop the greenfield site.

It is a terrible idea that once again profit will force nature back. Especially since there is no great need. Except in the summer months the hotels are not well occupied! For example, the Pestana Group will even shut down a variety of your hotels over Christmas and New Year's Eve. In the low season time there are free capacities everywhere! Hopefully we can prevent the plan.

We come to the area to enjoy the lovely coastal environment, not to admire new hotel buildings. Seems like the money men are trying to ruin it for everone else.

Without vigorous bungs, building 50 metres on the current coastline may be a problem but if the developers flatten the site and push the terrain out to sea they can keep the 50 metres limit. Us Portuguese always have a work around!

Another effort to 'privatize' a beach and cutting off access to the public. With a glut in tourism it will be another cliff top development with filled rooms for 90 days of year. There wont be a stretch of natural coastline in the Algarve soon.

There is a law about building close to the sea - I think that new buildings must be at least 50m from the sea shore. Looking at this plan and the red line, it seems that some of the development is closer too the sea than 50m.
