Work on the marina is estimated to cost of €300 million, and construction began 18 months ago at the site between the beaches of Ayia Thekla and Makronissos. During the first phase of the project, the breakwater was completed and surveys were carried out on the foundations that will hold two impressive towers.
Crew unfazed by second phase
Two tall structures, 100-metre towers of unparalleled architecture to be built in the current second phase, will offer 190 spacious apartments, 29 luxury homes, along with various commercial shops and restaurants, including public recreational areas for shoppers and visitors alike.
The reclamation of land was already at 83% according to the recent video, while the marina is spot clean after the basin dredging project has been fully completed. The crew is also carrying out inspections on the height of the man-made peninsula, said to be 13 feet above sea level (4 metres). About 250 people are working on the marina.
Operational buildings at the marina are expected to be completed by July 2019
