DESIGNS for a 3.8 million sq. m. aerotropolis development, which would turn Malaga airport into a technology and logistics hub, have been revealed.
A newly-created visualization shows the 1.7 million sq. m. of industrial and tertiary space, one million sq. ft. of office space and over one million sq. m. of parks and green space in the Airport City Alhaurin de la Torre (AGP Airport City) development.
Industrial, commercial, leisure and retail space will be linked via an internal shuttle system, connected to the airport and further afield by rail, highways and a port.
A holding company called the Center for Integrated Services for Airport Development and Strategic Impulse is spearheading the project which, they say, will contribute 4% of Andalucia’s economy while providing 25,000 direct and 80,000 indirect jobs.
Development has already begun in the vast district with headquarters for the project currently under construction, though progress is slow due to political inertia.
