The architectural firm Foster+ Partners and the Petrolina Group presented their grand vision for the Land of Tomorrow project on the Larnaca-Dhekelia coastal road this morning. This is a multi-million dollar project that will be implemented gradually and over time to improve the area and Larnaca as a whole, making it more appealing for tourism, investment, and new housing.

Prospective photographs of the area were provided as part of the presentation. The renovations will take place on 400 thousand square meters of land, the majority of which is owned by the Lefkaritis Group. It is expected that when the project is completed, an area of two and a half kilometers of coastline will be available for public use, and that 8 thousand jobs will be created to meet the project's implementation and operation needs. Furthermore, as stated at the press conference, it is expected that 20,000 plants will be planted, as one of the primary goals of the project is to improve the environment and ensure the project's long-term viability.

It is important to note that the area's development plans, which include Petrolina Group land, do not include tall buildings.

Although no specific dates have been set for the project's start and completion, there are some timelines for the next period.

The Seveso area, in particular, has been 99% cleaned up, and applications to obtain environmental authority to obtain an environmental certificate will be submitted by the end of the month. Planning permission applications are expected to be submitted in May, followed by permissions from the Environmental Authority.
