The development project allows the realization of residential buildings of 21,660 m² and of a hotel of 12,260 m². The project includes a series of developments aimed at equipping the port with a range of tourist services, parking lots and accommodation facilities, improving urban facilities and completing the pedestrian area under construction. The main developments are:

  • Renewal of the services and spaces in Via Mulino a Vento with the construction of a parking facility for 350 spaces on two underground levels. Additionally there will be sport facilities on the roof and two pedestrian paths towards the waterfront/port (Project no. 1).
  • Conversion of the social housing and the former fish market in Via Taranto: equipping the area with facilities to serve the leisure port, development of accommodation facilities, commercial premises and a 180 space car park on 5 levels near the quays of the leisure port (Project no. 2).



The city of Bisceglie (55,517 inhabitans) is located on the Adriatic Sea coast, in the Apulia Region, in a favourable geographical position with tourism appeal, close to other coastal towns (Trani, Bari, Polignano, Monopoli). The area of the project is close to historic medieval area of the town centre, with intact fortifications, and is very well connected to the main roads: 15 km to the A14, with exits “Trani” and “Molfetta, Airport in Bari Palese” and 1 km to the Railway Station.

The regional goverment’s new “Smart Specialization Strategy” will provide a significant boost to high-tech business sectors in the region such as aerospace, mechatronics and green economy. The focus for new investments on the other hand, will be on “smart” sectors (e.g., advanced manufacturing, creative industries, digital companies) as well as on innovating traditional business sectors. Puglia Sviluppo S.p.A., a regional government controlled company, manages the incentives for business investments.
