According to La Jornada via Notamex:
The legal representative of the Dragon Mart project, Juan Carlos López Rodriguez,said that development continues in spite of the denial of a constuction licence....
He added that the development of Dragon Mart including hiring personnel, will continue according to plans [although] in any case the judicial path will delay the process at least four months.
He said that since the subject and especially the denial of a municipal construction license already are politicized he will limit what he says on the matter....
On the other side, the mayor of Benito Juárez [the municipality of which Cancún is a part], Julián Ricalde Magaña, repeated that the license was denied to the project "Construction and Operation of the Commercial Center Dragon Mart and Associated Works" because it did not comply with the requirements of the law.
He emphasized that among other inconsistencies "the documentation attached to the application did not correspond to the original [material] which was presented as a demonstration of environmental impact.
"We will continue working in conformity with the law and...with what the rules indicate to us, because these are matters of responsibility," [the mayor] emphasized.
