The Pilitas Stairwell Project, located on Calle Pilitas at Pino Suarez, is a project to restore the Andador Pilitas (staircase) that connects our 2 streets.  This important area was destroyed several years ago during the construction of the Bella Loma condominiums, and was never restored (as originally promised) with a new staircase and green area


With so much new construction happening everywhere in the old town area (and PV in general), small projects like this are important to the integrity of our neighborhoods and vital to the locals. This was originally a city thoroughfare and it is important that we restore it as such, with green areas.

The Amapas Neighborhood Association (ANA) has many other irons in the fire (as shown in their newsletter) but the Pilitas Stairway Project is a top priority.

We are very happy to announce that this past Spring we finally received the permit from the city to proceed with the project.  The ANA and its members of the Pilitas Stairwell Project been working tirelessly with a local architect to render a beautiful, ambitious, (and logistically complicated) project that our neighborhood can be proud of. Furthermore, we will be breaking ground on Monday May 20; (to avoid July’s heavy rains).  A ribbon cutting is planned for Wednesday May 29th.

 We are able to start construction because of the initial generous donation of Nathalie Herling from Art Vallarta of $10,000 USD.  Also, the residents of El Escondido and Canada Romantica have each donated in the amount of $10,000 USD.  We still need to collect the other half of the funds so that we may complete this project in the 2 month timeline.  


*So now we are asking for donations from those of you who live and work in the area (and who would benefit from the restoration of this andador) to help reach our goal of $40,000 USD.  Residents, Realtors, Hotels, and Developers in the area would certainly all benefit from our beautiful staircase.


We invite you to see the attached project plans. The staircase is highlighted with sections in different colors. Each section has a cost and can be dedicated to you or your business.  A ribbon cutting is planned for Wednesday, May 29th.

Art Vallarta is in charge of the tile work and adding names of the donors.  Funds are being managed through ANA so you or your business can receive a factura.
