The latest Las Palmas & Gran Canaria property news including price updates and special offers.
I’ve written before about the benefits of using one estate agent to handle the sale of your Gran Canaria property via an exclusive contract.
But somehow, I’ve never managed to explain it in a few words (until now).
- You only get pestered by the estate agent you choose, rather than by lots of people you don’t know.
- All the island’s agents work to sell your property, but your agent is in charge of the whole process; marketing, viewings, paperwork, contracts, etc.
- Your chosen agent is there to look after your interests.
An exclusive contract with a good Gran Canaria agent means that you have complete control over the selling process.
Working exclusively with a good agent gives you the best possible chance of selling promptly and at the best possible price.
I’m Laura Leyshon and I’m one of Gran Canaria’s top-selling estate agents. If you have a property to sell in Gran Canaria, please feel free to contact me for a free appraisal and valuation.
Luis Morote street, between the Las Palmas cruise ship dock and Las Canteras beach, will be fully pedestrian within six months.
Work has started on the second phase of the project; paving the area between Tomás Miller street and the beachfront. The first phase, the section between Tomás Miller and Bernardo de la Torre, is also underway. [Read more…]

The next phase of an ambitious project to recover the Puerto de La Luz seafront in Las Palmas is going ahead with the relocation of the warehouses next to the Poema de Mar aquarium.
Currently occupied by the Red Cross and World Food Program, the warehouses will be removed and replaced by open public space. The charities will be relocated to custom-built warehouses, funded by the Las Palmas Town Hall, elsewhere in the port.
Eventually, the area around the Poema de Mar will be a large urban park stretching from the Mercado del Puerto all the way to the Naval Base at the east end of Mesa y Lopez. It will be linked to the Mercado and the Las Canteras beachfront by a pedestrian bridge.
Another phase of the redevelopment of the port seafront is also scheduled to start early in 2019; A 115m path that runs from the cruise dock next to Santa Catalina Park to the edge of the Naval Base. It includes a large waterfront platform suitable for sunbathing and events.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria’s long-term plan is to recover the whole port waterfront for public use, including the large area currently taken up by the Spanish Navy.
The project to connect Las Palmas to Maspalomas in south Gran Canaria is almost ready to move into the build phase, according to local press reports.
All individual parts of the planning are complete and just need to be approved as a whole. The next phase involves buying the land needed for the 57km train track and 11 stations.
Parts of the track, where it overlaps with the GC1 motorway in Las Palmas, will have to run through tunnels
The total budget for the land purchases and construction of the track and stations is 1.500 million euros. However, none of this funding is yet in place and total spend so far, on viability studies and plans, is just 20 million euros.
The train, when it is completed, will connect Las Palmas to Maspalomas in 20 minutes. However, it is already running a little late: When the train was announced in 2009, it was expected to be running by 2015.
