Cancun, Q.R. — As the first stones for a new residential complex in Cancun are laid, the company says it will generate more than 2,000 local jobs. City officials were on site for the inauguration of Woha Puerto Cancun, a new real estate development project.
The project will see the construction of small but efficient and sustainable apartments under their Be Better, Live Better concept. Cancun mayor Mara Lezama Espinosa, along with developers of the project, were on site for the initial laying of the first stones.
The residential complex is being built on Avenue Bonampak across 9,000 square meters of land.
The real estate development, which is being aided by Dr. Eduardo Rincón Mejía, renowned researcher and professor at the Autonomous University of Mexico City with extensive experience in solar, wind, geothermal, marine and hydraulic technologies, will offer homeowners sustainable facilities without wasting energy.
The project is headed by developer ARHEA-Property Development and will consist of one residential 19-floor tower of apartments with renewable energy technology, water reuse, waste separation and technological innovation such as rainwater harvesting, use of cross ventilation and power generation (solar or wind).
The company says over the next two years during construction, more than 2,000 direct jobs will be generated. Once the building is operational, there will be 180 jobs created for the maintenance and administration of the property.
