Puerto Plata will soon boast 7-story buildings
Santo Domingo.- Puerto Plata province senator-elect José Ignacio Paliza said Tuesday that the Chamber of Deputies is poised to pass a bill to allow building construction of up to seven floors in the tourist district.
He said the Senate Public Works Commission’s “firm goal” is to motivate the full floor to approve the zoning bill, which aims to rid Puerto Plata’s hurdles to its real estate sector, banning the construction of buildings higher than three stories “when the trend in buildings in similar tourist destinations is of more than five floors.”
“In Puerto Plata you have the example of the Bournigal Medical Center, which has an entire block with their facilities, but even with all that area, it needs more space to continue building areas for health services to benefit our province. It would be easier to grow vertically rather than continue using land that could well serve for residential or commercial development in that part of the city,” Paliza said.
