All these spaces with a wonderful view of the sea.

The total area of ​​the Development is 9,936.38 square meters.

In general, there was no obvious product to be launched: all alternatives, to a greater or lesser degree, presented risks and opportunities to be exploited. Thus creating an important challenge to be overcome to distinguish itself from the existing market and the products offered by other companies.
