How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City?
Platja de Palma is basically a zone with a single-sector business focused on mass tourism, despite its 40,000 residents. The idea here is to encourage new alternative uses that can remain active throughout the year, without depending on the peak tourist season. The territorial scale consists in sub-zones that are poorly connected to the center of Palma. This disconnection has turned the area into a kind of tourist ghetto. In addition to new types of uses, the proposal could stimulate existing businesses and restaurants outside the peak tourist season.
