Motorcycle parking space established at Huravee Building property

Parking spaces have been established on part of the property where the Huravee Building was previously located.

Male' City Mayor, Dr. Mohamed Muizzu, Thursday said 226 motorcycles can be parked in the space established on the property. The City Council is working on designing and drawing the parking zone that will be established at the location, he said.

The government started the work in August to clear the property where the Huravee Building was located and made plans to build a recreational park and a parking zone at the location.

Speaking to AVAS, a Planning Ministry official said the park is expected to be completed and opened to the public by November 11.

"Most of the park is now complete. However, work is still ongoing. If work continues at its current speed, it will be opened next month," the official said.

The dilapidated and nearly 35-year-old Huravee Building housed government offices until last year. The building was recently demolished, over ten years after relevant authorities declared the building unsafe to use. Before the building was demolished, the government auctioned off the usable items in the building.
