ATHENS | The Hellinikon - Metropolitan Park and Urban Development

the project will take place at the site of the old airport of Athens (Hellinikon). The discussions for the development for the area are taking place for years. Lamda Development (along with Fosun and Al Maabar) are the companies which will build and exploit the project.

The problem is that the new goverment wants more money from the deal. The plan is to start the work in 2016 but as i said there is problem with the new government so we will see how it goes.

Anyway, around couple weeks ago the company launched their new website so i decided to create a new thread, here are some info and renders of the project:

Quote:
Hellinikon, an investment of €8 billion, is the largest urban development project in Europe, The vision for a pioneer master plan has great emphasis on the creation of a metropolitan park of 2Μ sq.m, as well as on the enhancement of the coastal front that will be fully accessible to the public.

Our vision for the development of the former Hellinikon airport is the design of a pioneering development for Athens, with great emphasis on the creation of a world class metropolitan park, as well as the enhancement of the coastal front fully accessible to the public.

The development aims to improve the quality of daily life of the inhabitants of Attica as well as to attract new international strategic alliances and a significant number of new tourists.

The design highlights the beauty, the history, the cultural heritage and the particular characteristics of the coastal front of Athens combined with modern emblematic buildings, infrastructure and an innovative range of high quality services.

Main axis of our development will be the creation of a metropolitan park which will cover an area of 2,000,000 m2, one of the largest seaside parks in the world, freely accessible to the public. The development, to be implemented with the utmost respect to the environment, will become a significant factor to the economic regeneration of the region by transforming an uncut diamond into a model development of international stature and a world class tourist destination, with the ultimate aim of Athens to regain its place on the global tourist and business map.

Today's agreement, which specifies all the basic design requirements and economic parameters of the Project is a milestone because it provides the opportunity to accelerate all procedures for commencing the project that will become the largest urban regeneration throughout Europe for the coming years.
Quote:
The basic design includes the upgrading of the beach, residential developments, superregional and local commerce, hotel facilities and recreational areas, utilization of the Olympic facilities and the creation of new sports facilities, a new golf course, venues that highlight our cultural heritage, educational facilities and research centers etc. Moreover, within the Project’s framework the investors undertake the creation, financing and maintenance of the largest Greek, and one of the largest in the world, Metropolitan Green and Recreational Park, which jointly with the public use green areas of the site will cover and aggregate area of 2.600.000m2, that is 42% of the entire site. The investors undertake the financing and construction of all transport infrastructure, public facilities and utilities networks, all necessary port works, the creation of 50klm of sidewalks and bicycle paths which will create the necessary connection with the existing and the new rail networks, the underground routing of parts of Posidonos Avenue, the renovation and operation of all listed buildings within the site, as well as the creation of a 1 kilometer beach with free-access to the public.

Of course these are NOT the final designs of the towers but we must expect that the heights, scaling and relative perspectives as far as volumetric relations are concerned will look something like what is seen below.

This footage was released by the the investors as part of the materials to support the news stories related to the signingn of a memorandum of understanding between the Greek Government and the investment group comprised of Greek, Chinese and Emirates funds.

Looks like this time the road is paved for Athens to realize its potential and... reach new heights.

Renowned Architect Norman Foster to Design the Elliniko Project
http://greece.greekreporter.com/2016...iniko-project/
Quote:
Renowned architect Norman Foster and his firm, Foster + Partners, will design the ambitious project of the former Athens airport area in Elliniko, on behalf of Lamda Development.

The former Athens airport site on the so-called Athens Riviera was transferred by the Greek State to the Lamda Development consortium on Tuesday, after one year and a half of political bickering over its privatization. Lamda Development has hired Foster + Partners to carry out the design of the multi-billion euro project.

Quote:
The selection of the internationally acclaimed architectural firm FOSTER + PARTNERS together with ARUP Engineers, Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture (USA) and numerous reputable Greek designer offices, safeguards the strategic vision of the Developer, that is the design and development of a project that will have a significant positive impact on the living standard of the project’s end-users.

In specific, the design principles include:

The development of the Metropolitan Green and Recreation Park, covering an area of 2,000,000 m2, which extends from the coastal area up to Vouliagmenis Ave., thus connecting Alimos with Glyfada and Argyroupouli and Hellinikon municipalities with the sea, providing the residents of the neighboring Municipalities of Alimos, Argyroupoli - Hellinikon and Glyfada easy access to the park. The concept design of the park has been focused on highlighting the history of the former Hellinikon airport and site, transforming buildings of historical and emotional significance (Saarinen building / former eastern airport, hangars) into buildings of cultural interest (exhibition center, museums.)
Moreover, the Park design provides:
The creation of an invaluable open green space, a green lung characterized by the unique flora of Attica, which is expected to significantly improve the microclimate in the region and substantially contribute to the regeneration of the area and the strengthening of tourist and commercial interest.
Developing new exemplary sports facilities and stadiums as a reminder of the Olympic Games 2004 legacy.
Utilizing sections of the Airport’s runways and taxiways for the creation of pedestrian promenades and leisure spaces.

The development of the coastal front is expected to substantially enhance the project's overall image. The concept involves the upgrading and enhancement of the coastal front, via the implementation of significant infrastructure & marine works, including the creation of a more than 1km long publically accessible beach, surrounded, on one end, by the marina and on the other side by a world class landmark, an aquarium. The development of the coastal front includes tourism and recreation uses, (hotels, sports facilities, commercial uses) as well as model residential developments. Emphasis will be given on the construction of an architectural landmark tower designated for residential use, of impressive architectural design that will make it destination point and a landmark of the coastal front.

Hellinikon Metropolitan Park
Quote:
The Hellinikon Metropolitan Park is a 200-hectare landscape of cultural and natural beauty, located outside of Athens, Greece. Primarily located on the grounds of the Hellinikon former airport and the site for the 2004 Olympics it is bordered by Hymettus Mountains to the east, a golf course to the south and the Saronic Gulf on the west side.

The new parks basic structure is organized by the wavy crossing road and three pedestrian axes that traverse the site. Two of them are reused thin sections of the international and domestic runways. The third is a new pedestrian spine connecting the new shopping mall nearest the mountains through the park and village and to the beach. These three lines meet and form a triangle that is the existing location for the 2004 Olympic games symbol, a new museum and a grand plaza. This is the nexus point and heart of the park.

The park is divided both in terms of landscaping and uses, indoor or outdoor, in different precincts. Each one will have its unique landscape character with a seamless transition from one to the other, that will finally contribute to the creation of a uniform strong Greek landscape identity for the Park. These distinct areas will host sport uses, art and exhibitions, education centers, agriculture and of course leisure.

The developers also agreed to demands by the Greek state for the site to include more green spaces, and to pay maintenance costs. The site will also have malls, golf courses and luxury homes.

The consortium of Lamda Development, the Abu Dhabi-based real estate firm Al Maabar and the Chinese conglomerate Fosun International has pledged 915 million euros, about $1 billion, to lease the plot for 99 years. Another 7 billion euros, about $7.9 billion, will go toward the creation of parks, luxury homes, golf courses and the extension of the public transportation and drainage network over 15 years. According to Mr. Pitsiorlas, the project would create more than 40,000 jobs.

Good news for the largest urban regeneration project in Europe:

Greek Lawmakers Approve Hellenikon Deal at Former Airport
By Mary Harris -Sep 21, 2016

The debate on the draft law for the investment in the area of the former airport at
Hellenikon started on Wednesday at the parliament plenum and ended with an evening
vote in favor of the deal. All parties, with the exception of the Greek Communist Party
(KKE) and the ultranationalist Golden Dawn, were in favor of the investment, however,
there was opposition criticism of the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) party’s 180-degree
shift in view on a project that it had once opposed and had called a “sell-off.” {Continue...}

Six high-rise towers included in massive Helleniko real estate development master plan
http://www.naftemporiki.gr/story/126...nt-master-plan
Quote:
Six high-rise buildings (above 200 meters from the sea level) and various types and sizes of cutting-edge residences are an integral part of the Helliniko real estate redevelopment project in southeast coastal Athens, where the Greek capital’s old airport once operated.

According to a recently submitted “comprehensive development plan”, a necessary bureaucratic prerequisite before bulldozers begin work, the strategic goal of urban planners – in addition to creating a profit-making vehicle for investors – is to upgrade surrounding districts through the extensive creation of green space and recreational areas within a metropolitan complex that also includes residential and commercial land uses.

In terms of the six high-rises, the Lamda Development-led international consortium that won the property development concession said one of the skyscrapers will serve as a “landmark” for the entire project, and is currently known by the draft name “metropolitan park arena”.

Additional views of the project. Some of the buildings will be designed by Foster and Partners such as the Aquarium, the 6 star hotel at the Marina and the Metropolitan Park Arena with the observation tower while for the Marina Residential Tower that is gonna be the highest building of the project reaching 200 meters, an international architectural competition will be held.
