Good thread title. :D

There are plans to build in a few areas where there are no signs of houses yet, but the local papers say that there has been a 20% decrease in year on year sales in the Canary Islands as a whole, and one of the smaller building companies in Puerto laid off its neteen employees.

Plans have been approved to build a new school and health centre on the land next to the roundabout as you come in to town. That's what the blank exit is for.

There are currently two sites where the peckers used to make the foundations are being used and these are on chipmunk mountain.

My guess is that there is more building to be done, but that the new developments will spring up at a much sloweer rate.

Last time I was out there I passed the complex known as Las Villas (up by the subway heading up Chipmonk). It all seemed run down and dilapidated. Has it been abandoned.

Las Villas is currently being refurbished. They've all been gutted out, and windows and doors taken out.

I don't know if they are being refurbished as a holiday complex, or whether they're going to be privatly sold off.

On the mainland many of the unfinished sites have been abandoned due to the housing downturn. I note the cranes are still insitu but are they still working on the sites ?

Yes, they are still building there. I can't imagine how they are going to sell all those apartments. It's called Sunrise Palace.

There was only 3 last weekend! I counted them, 1,2 and 3, when I took the dog for a walk!

You turn your back, and they put another one up! :P

I think the one at the back was hidden from your view by the mountain.

I think another one has gone up since, but lower down the hill.

They haven't restarted the work on Sunrise Palace. It's still an unfinished building site.

Goldacre Estates are now selling the 2 bedroomed Mirimars at 71,000 euos and 3 bedroomed ones for 81,000. Imagine how cheap you could get them off the builder.
