The start of construction work for the highest coastal “green” skyscraper in the Mediterranean, in the area of the Agios Kosmas marina as part of the urban renewal in Ellinikon, is just around the corner, following the announcement by Lamda Development of the issuance of Riviera Tower ‘s building permit for which more than 1,900 blueprints and the cooperation of dozens of ministries, authorities, chambers and organizations were required.
Indicative of the particularly increased interest in the construction of the Tower, which will be 200 meters high, is the fact that for the 180 apartments of the Riviera Tower, which will have 50 floors, customer advances have already been deposited for approximately three quarters of the sold area. The estimated total revenue during the first phase with the completion of the respective sales, for all the apartments of the Riviera Tower amounts to approximately 600 million euros.
The main features of the skyscraper – Aesthetically Doric with green and aquatic elements
The main feature of the design approach, as has been announced, is the creation of an aesthetically austere building, in complete harmony with the sea and the special characteristics of the Mediterranean landscape.
The significant presence of the green and the aquatic element will be highlighted, thus adding to the bioclimatic character of the building.
All residences will be airy and offer unobstructed panoramic views. Each apartment, as revealed during the presentation of the skyscraper, has the most modern quality features, in terms of spaces, amenities and comforts, excellent environment friendly construction materials, as well as all the specifications of a smart building.
In five years’ time, when construction is completed, it will be one of the greenest skyscrapers in the world and a model of sustainable design, incorporating the best environmental practices and the most modern international safety protocols.
The architectural design is by the international architectural office of “Foster+Partners” in collaboration with the “Alexandros N. Tombazis and Associates”.
Accordingly, the static and electromechanical studies have been prepared by Buro Happold based in London, with the assistance of local partners, “DETA CONSULTING ENGINEERS” for the statics and “TEKEM S.A.” for electromechanical designs. The design of the surrounding area has been prepared by the company “DOXIADIS PLUS”.
