    There seems to be some movement at or close to the Paramount site. My local contact wrote a week ago:

    There were more trucks taking the turn to the MU-602 (since the new road is here, the MU-602 is very quiet) then usual, the ones we only see when they need to clean out land. And there is not a lot to do there for those trucks at this moment, so it could be related.
    And a few days later:

    I checked again: at the site itself nothing is going on at this moment, they are cleaning out an area nearby and that could be the truck depot area for the construction trucks.

    Airport delay

    “We want to do things well”, he said “and with all the guarantees so we are not going to do this in a hurry. “
    In recent years the Murcia Government has been under immense pressure to do something in the region with regard to the stimulation of the economy and employment and until the announcements of the new International Airport and the Paramount Theme Park the economy in this particular part of the Province was suffering from severe depression.
    However the promise of the two new developments went a long way toward soothing the voices of protest. This recent announcement will once again lead to raised voices of criticism if the summer tourism season fails to live up to expectations.

    Seriously that's it??

    Entrance gate that looks like Universal Studios?
    Universal copycat studio street?
    Rango's West Land looking like a mixture of Disney's Frontierland and PortAventura's Wild West section?
    Woodlands Fantasy Land that doesn't only look like but also sound like Disney's Fantasyland?
    Plaza Futura Land that basically IS Disney's Tomorrowland, complete with Star Tours copy?

    Anyone creative out there? Scared of risks? Better serve fast food than fresh fruits because someone might complain? Come on Paramount, you can do better! Surprise us!

  7. Definitive Project and first stone

    This is how's going to be build:

    First stone to be placed this March

  8. Massive impact, this is my guess. This is going to be the world's first Paramount movie theme park, I think it will even draw visitors from America and Asia. There's nothing much in Murcia and Alhama, nothing that would lure someone to fly in from New York, Moscow or Beijing. Paramount will change everything.

    Lucky those who own property in the immediate vicinity. On the other hand, there's still a chance of construction being stalled in the middle, after all this is Spain.

  9. Point of no return is almost reached. They need the investors to come out of the woodwork though. What impact will this have on the property markets and general economic development in Murcia ?

    MADRID, SPAIN, Apr 04, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- After the purchase, on March 7, of the land where the project will be located, PREMURSA is now immersed in the definition of the final plans of the Paramount Park and LifeStyle Center.

    PREMURSA has finally rejected the purchase of the rest of the land as it does not meet the necessary requirements. This fact will not affect the deadlines established for the construction of the project.

    The first stone will be laid on 31 May 2012.

    Proyectos Emblematicos Murcianos S.A. (PREMURSA) has started to define the final plans for the Paramount Park and LifeStyle Center in Alhama de Murcia, which will be completed in the next few weeks.

    These plans will be adapted to the 1,031,077 m^2 of land purchased on March 7. PREMURSA has finally rejected the purchase of the rest of the land as this still fails to meet the necessary requirements demanded by Proyectos Emblematicos Murcianos.

    However, this fact will not only have no affect on the construction of the park or the established deadlines but, thanks to the redefinition and adaptation of the new plans, will lead to the optimization of both the space acquired and of construction costs.

    Thus, the technical team of PREMURSA is working on plans that will integrate the Paramount Park (which maintains the original dimensions) in the LifeStyle Center itself; which will be resized but will maintain the same facilities and leisure areas specified in the original project.

    Thanks to the integration of the park and the LifeStyle Center visitors will be able to enjoy the two spaces in a much more convenient, simple and fast way and, at the same time, many synergies can be created between the two areas.

    In this way, the project gains not only in profitability, but also in operation and efficiency.

    Once the design of the plans is completed, the laying of the foundation stone will take place, in an official event to be held on 31 May in Alhama de Murcia. It will be the starting gun for a film project.
