This work comprises two projects. Our company tackled the management of the work for the housing development part while the technicians from the provincial coastal service carried out the management of the works for the promenade.
The housing development includes the internal road system and connection to general highway systems (TF 6237 highway from Adeje to Puerto de Santiago), modifying the intersection at the existing level with a new roundabout. Given the privileged location in the area where a five-star hotel is located, a high-quality development was conceived with wide road sections, porphyry stone pavements, high-end black street lights, and a gardened area featuring palm trees and shade trees like the royal poinciana.
The main purpose of the 50-metre wide promenade was to recover a large area of the coastline occupied by crops and unregulated camping areas that reached the very edge of the sea for public use. Conceptually, the project is structured in bands where the natural landscape – restored and conserved at the seafront – overlaps with the agricultural land (represented by stone terraces) and the urban landscape in the background. The land topographical irregularities are taken care of, re-establishing the connection with the surroundings: to the south, the connection with the Alcalá seafront; to the north, the connection with the beach La Jaquita. The promenade is brought together by intertwined strips that make up the promenade itself and a bike lane that gives access to several recreational areas: wooden terraces, sports fields, play areas, etc. The project also included the restoration of a fishing dock and the conservation of fishing gear, which now stands as an urban landmark.
