A SQUABBLE over concessions has halted construction of the Cube in Malaga – the city selected to host the first Pompidou Centre gallery outside France.
Work barely got started on the exhibition space last week before Malaga Port Authority put the brakes on, claiming it was granted the concession for the exhibition centre from the original builders.
Malaga Town Hall has been issued with a separate concession.
Technically, a protocol has been signed by both parties mandating that the Town Hall receive concession to the space from the Port Authority.
Malaga Town Hall has dismissed the spat as a ‘formal problem’.
