Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The National Tourism Development Fund (Fonatur) has issued a new tender for their preliminary projects that includes the design of the Playa del Carmen Maya Train station.
The station, which is set for construction at the junction of 38th Avenue and the federal highway next to the Magic Express hotel in Playa del Carmen, requires an architectural design consistent with the vision of the Maya Train master plan which integrates squares, walkways and routes that function as a space for coexistence for tourists and locals that “brings benefits to the urban landscape”.
The plans for the Playa del Carmen Maya Train station will see the eventual construction across 15,000 of the 25,000 square meters of land set aside for the project.
The station will provide both short and long-stay car parking along with parking lots, taxi areas, a centralized area for buses, a bicycle area, waiting rooms, sales and reporting modules, toilets, ATM and other amenities that include a cafeteria, restaurants, shops and, of course, the train platforms.
“The station’s draft must be conceived and carried out integrally with the foundations of sustainable building and the application of technological innovations in the field of digitalization and information technology,” the Fondo Nacional de Fomento al Turismo (Fonatur) document read.
