The Esplanade, as a bridge, is the point where the urban landscape joins the beach and delineates the exit to the sea. Various cultural activities have been hosted in its enclosed space.
The Glass Building is a rectangular, two-storey building, with a total area of 2,528.50 sq.m., with vertical glass surfaces on the two broader sides. Characteristic of the building is the terrace overlooking the entire Faliron Bay.

Along the Water Square there are 4 refreshment stands of light construction.

The whole of Zone III is located in one of the most crucial points of the regeneration of the Coastal Zone of Attica, which is to be a characteristic reference point of the new Athenian Riviera and is defined as a Culture and Conference Zone, which allows the following land uses and activities:

The development of Zone III, being part of the overall regeneration of the coastal front, will assist in the creation of a single route from the city center to Vouliagmeni. In this context, priority is given to the development of innovative and environmentally friendly facilities of high aesthetical value.
