THE ARRIVAL of a plant dispensing concrete in Coco del Mar  does not sit  well with residents who are  on high alert.

On Monday, August 29 members of the area’s Environmental Association staged a protest demanding  authorities stop the project.

The concrete plant is planned for a 2,000 square meter lot where a 26-floor building is supposed to be built.

The developer, Coco del Mar PTY, S.A., reported that the plant will include a production facility and two storage areas.

It said the concrete will only be used on the building and that it is allowed within the project’s environmental impact study reports La Prensa.

Panama Mayor José Blandón  has defended the project, saying the production of concrete on site will reduce the number of trucks entering and leaving the project.

Blandon  has been under attack from citizens  in other areas  concerned over the city’s seemingly uncontrolled planning and excessive expenditure in Calle Uruguay and Via Argentina

Residents have asked that the project be suspended until the issue can be studied in greater detail.
