The head of the DGEIRA, Andrée Lilian Guigue Pérez, highlighted that the environmental damage ruling obliges the project developers to demolish the property in its entirety and pay just over 61 million pesos to the Public Environmental Fund of Mexico City.

It was never demonstrated, by the promoter of the work, that he had use of land that would allow him to do this type of work, in addition to the fact that he already had negative environmental issues for this project. Then, in addition to already having the refusal of the project, it builds without authorization, invades the federal zone, that is, the body of water; it did everything that no developer should do, which is precisely a whole series of irregular, illegal activities, ”he explained.

Among the basic requirements that the company failed to meet is the absence of the Urban Impact Opinion, of the Manifestation of Environmental Impact and irregularities in the construction demonstration, among others.
