Palma City Council is now having to examine the consequences of yesterday’s high court ruling be they legal, planning or economical, Mayor Mateo Isern said.
Palma.—The Gesa building was built in the late 1970s and features 15 floors packed into a 41 metre tall building mainly composed of glass on the outside.
In 2004 however, the building was sold by power giant Endesa to the construction company, Núñez i Navarro from Catalonia.
Their idea was to build 200 luxury flats on the grounds of the building and the acquisition included the commitment of Endesa to demolish the building.
However, in 2007 it was declared by the Council of Majorca a ‘listed building’ in a bid to help protect it from demolition.
