THE ayuntamiento of the town of Cullera, Valencia, has approved plans to build 33 skyscrapers on the shoreline.
The move, which will convert the town into what is being called a ‘New Manhattan’ was passed with the votes of the Partido Popular and Unión Valenciana.
The blueprint for the development shows 33 skyscrapers of up to 25 floors. Two of the structures will reach 40 stories in height. The green light has been given to the project despite opposition from the government, the water board and ecological groups.
”There is no guarantee of a water supply to the new buildings,” said a spokesperson at the Júcar Water Board who went on to say that there is not enough water in the municipal wells to supply the new population.
Once occupied the new buildings will double the population of the town, currently 23,200.
