DERELICT: The current plot of land in Malaga earmarked for the new towers

Property developer AQ Accentor has been drafted in for the new development, which is financed by German investment fund Aquila Capital.

Full plans for the Malaga plot include a total of 750 new homes, but details of the project are limited.

The site is known as the ‘Martiricos’ development, which is being led by Madrid real estate company Espacio Medina.

Although the plans are not finalised, AQ Acentor boss, Sven Schoel told Diario Sur, ‘we have demand both for purchase and for rent’.

Other construction works at the Martiricos site include a 20,000-square-metre park and a seven-floor office complex.
