In addition, 29,389 m2 are proposed zoned with alternations of use (hotel, commercial, cultural and residential).

Regarding residential use, the maximum number of homes linked to Malaga TechPark is limited to 200 and 9,501 m2 are contemplated for endowments (gardens and play and recreation areas), as well as 2,400 m2 for equipment (services of public and social interest and teacher) to this associated residential land.

Finally, the development of the proposed Plan foresees the creation of 96,345 meters of road (6 main roads and 5 secondary ones) and 1,367 public parking spaces. The management proposed by this Partial Plan has a favorable environmental evaluation conditioned by four points that must be addressed by the developer before its final approval.
