November 2012, Marina Port Vell Undergoing Transformation

Marina Port Vell (MPV), Barcelona has announced the exciting news that the Board of Directors of the Port of Barcelona has approved the refurbishment of Marina Port Vell and an overall size expansion.


 
This critical approval provides Marina Port Vell the opportunity to act on worldwide interest from yacht owners and captains to secure homeport and transient berthing needs.

 
Additionally, the Port’s approval includes an extension of MPV’s concession period by 10 years until 2036; the original grant of Marina Port Vell was in 1991 and includes Barceloneta, the Clocktower and Deposit Quays. The refurbishment of Spanish Quay was approved  (28 November 2012) and is supported by the State Port Authorities.

 
The next step in Marina Port Vell’s transformation process is garnering a final approval from the City Council for the amendment to the Special Plan. The step is already underway.
