A controversial Torrevieja building, nicknamed La Ballena (The Whale), is set to be demolished at a cost of 200 thousand euros after lying empty for the last decade. Two years ago a homeless man started a blaze in the building on Calle Pedro Lorca in the La Punta area of the city, and the block has been the subject of numerous complaints from local residents.

Torrevieja council has announced that a tender for the demolition work can be finally advertised after a series of delays and the granting of permission from the Local Government Board. The work was budgeted for back in 2015.
