Panama: Ambitious Plan for Amador

The updated plan to develop the Amador Causeway proposes taking advantage of the stretch between the Biomuseo and Naos Island, and building recreational areas on platforms on piles there.

Monday, May 14, 2018

The Administrative Unit of Reverted Property (Uabr) reported that the study of the master plan updated by the firm Tourism, Business & Planning (C4T), recommends the installation of six platforms that will house recreational areas, which would be built on piles overlooking the entrance to the Panama Canal.  "... They would be a kind of piers or platforms on piles, where various businesses would be operating.

Luis Felipe Icaza, executive secretary of the UABR, told that " ... the government will build two of the six platforms that can be developed. They would be a kind of piers or platforms on stilts, where various businesses would be operating. 'We do not want to launch the entire supply onto the market, as we have to measure the appetite of investors'."

"... The signature C4T indicates that the platforms would have sight of the entrance of the Panama Canal. It suggests that they be used to host sports tracks, small amphitheatres, fountains or water mirrors, areas with pergolas and shaded areas to make the road brighter."
