Some views of the park.
Hellinikon Metropolitan Park

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.

Lamda Development recently submitted the full master plan for the project and that gave us plenty details about the structure of the project such the developments of the first phase that focuses more in the coastal zone with the construction of the Aquarium and the 6 star hotel at the marina together with 45% percent of the Metropolitan Park and the Metropolitan Arena with the observatory tower. The same period all the nessecary infrastructure such as the new underground Poseidonos Avenue will be constructed.

You may find some additional information at this article:
Lamda Development Submits Master Plan for Hellinikon Mega Project
Lamda Development, the selected investor for the 7 billion euro development of Athens’ former airport in Hellinikon, submitted on Thursday its master plan to Greece’s state privatization fund TAIPED, the company’s CEO Odysseas Athanassiou announced during the company’s annual shareholders meeting.
The submission of the plan, which aims to turn the area into a world-class tourism destination that will attract an extra one million tourists per year, marks an important step towards the materialization of the project.

Once the plan is endorsed by a multi-ministerial committee it will go to the State Council for final approval.
Lamda Development has been waiting to get the final go-ahead for the ambitious project set to transform Athens’ former airport complex into a metropolitan park including the development of residential zones, hotels, shopping centers, theme parks, museums, open-air cultural venues, health and life centers, sport and leisure facilities as well as the creation of modern business, educational and research hub.

The investment is expected to create 10,000 permanent jobs during the construction period and 75,000 jobs (IOBE study, July 2016) during its maturity.
