Six other Cancun Hotel Zone projects being investigated by city officials

Cancun, Q.R. — The Ministry of Ecology and Urban Development of the municipality of Benito Juárez began the review of six more files being carried out in the Cancun Hotel Zone. The additional reviews come after the recent suspension of the Gran Solaris Cancun hotel.

Armando Lara De Nigris, the Secretaría de Ecología y Desarrollo Urbano del municipio de Benito Juárez says that those six construction licenses were also granted during the last administration, which was headed by Remberto Estrada Barba. He says the files will be reviewed in order to verify that they have been issued within the legal framework.

Lara De Nigris made the announcement, omitting the names of the projects to avoid hindering the investigation, but made it clear that they are not only hotels, but shopping centers and various developments that were granted permits toward the end of the last administration. He says that they still have valid building licenses.

“We are reviewing all the files, especially six of the hotels, developments and shopping centers in the hotel zone because they are keeping their permits in force. We have started the process to verify these large projects that are being built on Fonatur properties. The idea is to have certainty,” he explained.

He said the process began as a result of inconsistencies found in the granting of the construction license that was issued to the Gran Solaris Hotel development, and that the hotel has already suspended once due to illegally granted permits.
