Adeje’s new face of shopping
Adeje is to get two more commercial centres which will transform the face of tourists shopping in the south.
One of them is to occupy around 25,000 square metres and will be located opposite Siam Park. It has already gained a municipal licence and work has started on preparing the site.
The second centre will eventually dwarf it in size. Despite opposition, the go-ahead has been given for a massive 365,640 square metre development at Las Torres in the grounds of the old Tropicana nightclub off the TF1. The first stage will be a building of 32,000 square metres, making it the largest facility of its kind in the south of the island. Shops, parks, supermarkets and restaurants will all be included. There may even be another cinema and a leisure centre.
The Superior Court of Justice for the Canary Islands has dismissed an objection to the Tropicana development by Tenerife’s Federation of Commerce (Fedeco). It is understood the Tropicana building with its unusual shape will be retained although its purpose is not known.
The Tropicana developers are expected to release full details soon and work could begin this year.
The mall near Siam Park is expected to have three floors and parking for 1,000 cars. The budget is 27.2 million euros with a completion time of two years.
