Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A hotel project for the city of Playa del Carmen has gone to public consultation that, if approved, would see the construction of a 150-room beach front hotel.
The General Directorate of Impact and Environmental Risk (Dgira) of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) have taken the project to public consultation for the first stages which include environmental issues and a change of land use.
The project, Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Riviera Maya promoted by the company Promotora Arena Blanca SA de CV, would be an investment of $66 million USD.
The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) says they will accept public comments and proposals via email regarding the hotel until September 20.
In August, the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Riviera Maya announced their intention to begin construction sometime this year. If approved by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, the 150-room hotel would be built just north of Playa del Carmen.
According to their website, they are also hoping to build in Cancun in the near future.
