Value of condos in Playa del Carmen started to rise after the new beach widening project
Online PR News – 23-March-2010 – – Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Mar 23, 2010. The white sand beaches of Playa del Carmen, the hot-spot Mexican Caribbean town, became even wider and nicer since the beginning of February, as the government- sponsored machinery restored the coastal area. To cover 2.6 miles (4.2 km) of Playa del Carmen’s beaches, about 2.6 billion cubic feet (800 million cubic meters) of sand was required.
Maya Villa, one of the group of condos in Playa del Carmen, located in an area also known as the “golden zone,” led charge in convincing the government to move forward with the project that has been on hold for several years. The work started at Constituyentes Avenue, close to where Maya Villa is located, and will continue along the beach.
The beach expansion project also resulted in the installation of four linked docks to be used by small boats, fishing boats among them. Four wooden docks will not only help preserve the beach and area, but will also give tourists who use boats the highest level of safety. The docks were installed by the main streets of Playa del Carmen: 12, 10, 8 and 6.
The project widened all of Playa del Carmen’s “golden zone,” providing its oceanfront hotels and condos in Playa del Carmen, such as Maya Villa, with bigger beach. But the machinery and noise did not overwhelm the whole coastline. The sand used for beach widening was being pumped from the depths of the ocean and transported to the shore. The sand was being taken from 60 feet-deep ocean bottom that is coral-free, and environmental studies have been conducted in order to protect the natural environment of the ocean before the beginning of the project. This way, a new shoreline was being created, and about 200 feet of coastline was being covered ever day. The coastline was not altered, but restored to its natural state that has been eroded over the past 20 years due to inclement weather patterns.
The beach widening is exciting news for the current and future owners of units at Maya Villa and condos in Playa del Carmen in general, as the real estate value of this and other properties will continue to rise. At the same time, Playa del Carmen will keep luring even more visitors, as the area’s development is increasing. While preserving the charm of a small fishing village, Playa del Carmen can boast a strong commitment of the local government and property owners to make the area even more attractive and appealing to residents and tourists, and the beach widening project is just one example of this on-going dedication. Now it is the right time to buy condos in Playa del Carmen. For more information, please visit the website of Maya Villa: http://www.mayavilla.com/
