The 7-billion-euro project to develop Athens former airport- the Hellinikon in Glyfada, into a metropolitan park, residential area, business and trade centre will include the construction of six 200-meter-tall buildings, according to the Integrated Development Plan tabled for public consultation this week.
According to the developers, the aim is to improve the quality of life of residents at the urban complex by developing an extensive metropolitan area that will also include green and recreational spaces.
The six towers will include the metropolitan park arena, the marina residential tower, an office tower, hotel tower, integrated resort tower and the promenade residential tower, all of which are set to serve as landmarks of the area due to their unique design.
Plans how the area marked Α-Α1 will host the Tourism, Leisure and Business Park to be divided into the Health & Wellness area and the resort area including 5-star hotel, conference halls and a casino, both of which will have views to the coast, Athens and Piraeus. Other tourism facilities will be constructed along the Agios Kosmas marina.
The Hellinikon project has been running behind schedule and construction has yet to commence. It is reported it will create 10,000 permanent jobs during construction and 75,000 jobs upon completion.
