A municipal space that currently has 100% occupancy, as indicated by municipal sources consulted by THE WORLD, but that the City Council of the capital seeks to “revitalize” as has happened with others in the Centro district as San Anton, Barcelo or Anton MartinThe integral reform of the market would involve an investment of three million euros that would serve to modify the structure of air conditioning of the space, electrical installations, adapt the facades and create a roof mainly focused on restoration offers. Due to the “high economic amount” needed for the reform, sources of Economy Area They indicate that the Consistory will use “private investors” to finance “the entire project” after receiving “the interest of several”. The basis of the project will focus, in addition to a reform of the facilities, in developing various tasting bars in the market and enable a rooftop with a gastronomic space that serve as a complement to the food stalls that now occupy the space.
