2009-2010



Tourism is also a priority

The Hotel W Barcelona opened its doors in 2009, extending the Port’s tourist services and providing added momentum to the project to create a new entrance mouth. The second phase of the project includes the planned construction of the Alzheimer Research Centre by the Pasqual Maragall Foundation Barcelona Beta (Barcelona Research Complex for Better Aging) and the head office of the Desigual fashion label. The 30,000 m2 complex was designed by the highly regarded Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill.
