First stone laid at Paramount theme park, Murcia
The promoter Proyectos Emblematicos Murcianos (PREMURSA) accomplished another objective in the progress of the Paramount theme park and LifeStyle Center in Alhama de Murcia, Spain.
After buying the land in March, PREMURSA prepared a formal groundbreaking ceremony supervised over by Ramón Luis Valcárcel, President of the Autonomous Community of Murcia; Joaquín Bascuñana, Delegate of the Government for the Region of Murcia; Alfonso Fernando Cerón, Mayor of the Town Hall of Alhama de Murcia; Michael Bartok, Executive Vice President of Paramount Licensing Inc.; and Jesús Samper, President and CEO of PREMURSA.
Michael Bartok stated Paramount's objective was to "establishment of a state-of-the-art theme park intended to attract and entertain both locals and tourists alike." That goal, according to Mr. Bartok, is bolstered by the region of Murcia "because of its outstanding location and climate as well as its variety of cultural and leisure attractions."
Once finished, the venture will add to the economic development of the Region of Murcia by generating more than 22,000 jobs, both directly and indirectly.
As they are expecting to receive thousands of job applications, PREMURSA will create a virtual office on its website in the coming weeks to make it possible to process the applications from individuals and companies interested in participating in the project.
The Paramount theme park will include state-of-the-art attractions and will feature a retail shops along with themed lands and two themed hotels. Neighboring to it, the LifeStyle Center will include a large hotel, commercial and leisure area that will be home to a street mall, restaurants, bars, night clubs and a casino.
The grand opening of this new resort is planned for spring 2015.
