The Council’s permission for the premises’ continued use will end once remodelling work starts on the Olympic Port, as planned for July 2020.
The agreement with the Guild of Restaurant and Café Owners provides for continued use of premises until the start of the remodelling work, which is expected to be in July, given that the concessions of the premises currently in the Olympic Port were supposed to end on 2 April 2020.
This agreement is one of the first initiatives under the Olympic Port’s comprehensive transformation process, involving a complete overhaul of the port’s infrastructure: 48,000 square metres of citizen space are to be reclaimed, open to the sea and concentrated on popular sea activities. The municipal impetus behind the new project came about following an agreement signed with the Catalan government to transfer the Olympic Port’s management jurisdiction to the City Council. It will come full administrative effect on 3 April 2020, for a period of 30 years.
What will the new Olympic Port be like?
The Olympic Port area, focused so far on night-time leisure, will be turned into a 48,000 square-metre space with the sea as the nerve centre for local-neighbourhood, economic, sports and outreach activities.
When will the work begin?
The port’s urban-planning transformation is expected to start in July 2020 with work going ahead on the breakwater to sort out the infrastructure’s overshooting problems and improve its safety.
