Harnessing the value of heritage and location.
The Ellinikon masterplan is a world-class scheme that reflects and amplifies the character of the Athenian Riviera — the sea, the sun, the land and the natural flora of our home.
The Mediterranean landscape is a dominant feature — highlighted by The Ellinikon Park and The Ellinikon Riviera which extend into several communities, each one with its own distinct character and topography.
Throughout the site, existing buildings of historical and emotional significance will be maintained and enhanced, with a route connecting all major archaeological and other cultural sites.
Underlying all these elements will be the most progressive and sustainable infrastructure to make The Ellinikon a paradigm of integrated and sustainable living.
