Barcelona ‘space hotel’ plans met with mixed reviews

Plans to build a new island off the Barcelona coast have created uproar in Spain. The mayor of Barcelona has said that the 1.5 billion euro resort would become a ‘spectacle’ and that the plans were ‘not in keeping’ with the city’s style.

The new island planned for visitors flying to Barcelona, which is modelled off other artificial islands such as the ones in Dubai, will feature a 2,000-suite ‘space hotel’, if plans go ahead. The faux island will also have a ‘zero-gravity’ spa and a 24-hour shopping ‘space mall.’Barcelona

The plans were submitted by US developer Mobilona last week, but have been meet with mixed reviews. “We have no intention of turning Barcelona into a spectacle," said Xavier Trias, Barcelona’s mayor. “We have no need or desire to take on projects of this nature. We are a city of culture, knowledge, of creativity, and of innovation, and our project [to develop the city] will follow a different path."

However, chief executive officer of Mobilona, Jerome Bottari, has expressed confidence in the company’s plans saying plans already unveiled for similar projects elsewhere have been popular. "Mobilona creates the perfect blend of design and technology to simulate any place on earth, or in the universe," said Bottari. "Immersive displays inside Mobilona Space Hotel on Barcelona Island will provide guests with stunning views of some of the most remote galaxies in our universe."Barcelona Coast

If plans to build the new artificial resort go ahead the building will become the tallest hotel in Europe. The ‘space hotel’, which will stand at 984 feet, would offer spectacular views of the bay and prices would start from 300 euro per night up to 1,500 euro for the top suites.
