  • The iconic Malaga building will become home to a five-star hotel in the base and four-star hotel in the tower

Work to prepare the iconic La Equitativa building to be converted into a luxury hotel began on Monday.

The demolition of partition walls took place, as well as the preservation of elements which will form part of the new five-star hotel which will occupy the base part of the building.

Located between Calle Larios and the Muelle Uno marina, with the conversion, La Equitativa is set to become a main landmark once again.

The contract to turn the tower of the building into a four-star hotel this week awarded to Soho Boutique Hotels. Unlike the base, a works licence has not yet been granted but doors are expected to open in 2021.
