If you want to take a shot, you will need to submit a proposal outlining how you will transform your desired location into a tourist destination. Preference is being given to individuals under 40 years of age, although those of us over 40 are not excluded from applying.
You don't actually get title to the building, sorry. You will have the right to run it for nine years, with an option for an additional nine years.
The deadline to submit your proposal is June 26, 2017. It is expected that work will begin next summer.
