Zinger Key Points
  • Murano plans a new cruise port in Baja California.
  • The project includes hotels, an industrial park, and a retail village.

Real estate company Murano Global Investments PLC MRNO shares are trading higher after the company announced the signing of a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a global cruise operator.

This agreement aims to explore the development of a cruise port destination at Murano’s property in Bajamar, Baja California, Mexico.

Murano is a London-based real estate company specializing in hotel, resort, and commercial properties.

The Baja Project, situated on the Tijuana-Ensenada corridor, is just 60 minutes from the Tijuana/San Diego border and close to the beaches of Ensenada, Tijuana, and Rosarito.

The project already includes plans for a 370-key all-inclusive hotel and an industrial park. With the potential addition of a cruise port, the development could also feature another hotel with up to 400 keys and a retail village to cater to tourist traffic.

Murano’s CEO, Elias Sacal, said, “Importantly, there are no other cruise ports in proximity to our location. This would make the development of a port a highly strategic and mutually beneficial endeavor for Murano, the cruise operator and the local economy, which would benefit significantly from enhanced tourism.”

Murano’s Baja Project is strategically located on the west coast of Mexico, providing easy access to the U.S. and the Pacific Rim.

The location, combined with modern infrastructure and a skilled workforce, positions Baja Park to become a regional hub for manufacturing and logistics.

The potential cruise port development is expected to further enhance the project’s attractiveness and Murano’s development pipeline.

Price Action: MRNO shares are trading higher by 22.9% at $10.47 at the last check Monday.
