Mayor unveils construction of luxury hotels on Avenida España
Mayor Manuel Jiménez of Santo Domingo Este municipality has announced plans for the construction of luxury hotels along the entire coastline of Avenida España.
According to the mayor, the remodeling area from Punta Torrecilla to the National Aquarium on Avenida España will be transformed into a first-class tourist development. The construction permits have already been issued to Spanish and Dominican companies, and three building designs are currently being offered for sale.
Mayor Jiménez envisions the area becoming the longest boardwalk, offering a luxurious experience for visitors. The Santo Domingo Este City Council (ASDE) has developed a strategic plan for both the next four and ten years, with the aim of making the municipality the most important city in the country.
The mayor highlighted several attributes of Santo Domingo Este, including its proximity to the country’s most important international and military airports, its adjacency to the capital city, and its access to important ports such as the Port of Santo Domingo and Punta Caucedo.
Jiménez emphasized the area’s 20 kilometers of sea, which stretches from Punta Torrecilla to Punta Caucedo. I have described the coastline as resembling a bay with low, calm, turquoise waters similar to the Pacific Ocean, making it suitable for various water sports, tourist activities, and the potential for two or three marinas.
Additionally, the area boasts a tourist and cultural zone that includes landmarks such as the Columbus Lighthouse, the Chencha cultural platform known for sonero activities, the bust of Juan Pablo Duarte, the Monument to La Caña, Los Tres Ojos, and more.
The development of luxurious hotels along Avenida España is expected to transform the area into a vibrant tourist destination, attracting visitors from around the world.
