Proposed Space Fantasy Hotel Outrages City Officials

Spanish architect Erik Morvan has infuriated city officials over his proposal to construct a 1,000 foot “space” hotel complete with a 24-hour mall, a marina and 2,000 hotel rooms, where windows would feature touchscreen videos of distant galaxies. via dezeen:

The developer, Mobilona Space Hotels, based in Los Angeles, promises

that “Mobilona Space Hotels™ will offer an out of this world experience for guests who wish they could travel to distant galaxies. The new hotels in Barcelona, Los Angeles and Hong Kong will be constructed by a multinational consortium under the leadership of Mobilona’s Global CEO Jerome Bottari and represent an estimated value of over $6 billion.

The project hasn’t gotten through the first stages of government approval, but we have to give the developer credit for having the chutzpah to try…then again, they do talk to extraterrestrials too…

  1. I would totally work in the space hotel (preferably in the IT department), as long as I got to live in one of those rooms. What can the govt be thinking? Imagine the tax revenue on a never-ending sci-fi convention.
