Proposal for Palma's Club de Mar

OVER 2,000 trees and tens of thousands of plants are set to revolutionise the look of Palma’s seaside promenade.

Proposed plan for Porto Pi, which will extend through Palma

The €20 million project will create a far leafy, more pedestrian-friendly arrival in the city from 2020.

However, the the Paseo project, designed by Ibiza architect Elias Torres, is likely to anger motorists, who are set to lose a lane in both directions, as well as 124 parking spaces, the majority by the Palma Auditorium.

The winning project, announced by the Port Authority (APB) this week, will see paths widened between Porto Pi and Avenida Argentina.

There will be a zebra crossing introduced every 100 metres and traffic lights will also change quicker to help offset the reduction in lanes.

“It will make the paseo a greener, more human space and one of the best in Europe”

“It will make the paseo a greener, more human space and one of the best in Europe,” insisted Palma mayor Antoni Noguera.

“It will convert it from a six-lane motorway to a new space for citizens.

The first of the 2,150 trees are set to be planted early next year, after a five month period of fine tuning.
