The project-proposal is a redevelopment of the Chimica Arenella’s industrial buildings and its surroundings. All of this thanks to the initiative of Palermo’s authorities and its awareness of the potential of the tourist segment and its maritime coast.The project proposal is structured in two distinct typological blocks: the touristic block consists in a hotel with 220 rooms including swimming pools areas and tennis courts, an area for exhibitions spaces and a complex of indoor and outdoor spaces for conferences, events, cinema, theater and a park by the sea.
