The Marina D’Or new development eyesore on the Spanish coast has just had a big setback with the Valencian courts ruling that planning permission for its over-the-top Marina D’Or Golf project did not follow correct procedures and is therefore invalid. For some reason the tender for the project was not published in the official EU publication, which all projects of more than €6m should be.
Marina D’Or Golf planned to build 30,000 new homes on 18 million m2, plus 3 golf courses, several themed hotels and other themed zones.
Marina D’Or say it’s not giving up 😥

Thought I recognised the place from car trips to Castellon… Yes, it was the terrible architecture seen from the AP-7 (from quite a distance and still ugly). I have wondered who would buy these apartments. Looked like someone was back in the 60s/70s trying to build another Benidorm.
Also learned another word in English, eyesore….

I remember years ago on Spanish tv watching the adverts for it…. seemed that they were trying to get Spanish buyers just as much as expats?

They were primarily focused on the local market. Typical client was taxi driver from Madrid.

They could encourage the Russians to buy it? It is a ‘holiday resort’ so with the tourism industry in Spain being so popular they should be able to make it work out? It’s just individuals buying into it which wouldn’t work? If it was an enormous hotel type venture then it could work? What about that sheikh who was going to build in Marbella, couldn’t he buy this instead?
