Nice fotos K. About the absorbing vehicles: They are absolutely environment-friendly. Only Berlin and now Athens (and Pireus) have such verhicles at the moment.

Quote:
Environment, town Planning and Public Works Minister George Souflias announced on Monday the construction of a new network of motorways in the prefecture of Attica, having a total length of 55 kilometres and linking the Attica motorway with the coastal Posidonos motorway as well as, with a tunnel through Imittos, with the Mesogia region from Agia Marina to Rafina, including the airport. The project, budgeted at 1.2 billion and be carried out with the method of assignment, will have a very important characteristic: The complete (up to 90 percent) length from Katechaki motorway in the region of Vyronas down to Posidonos motorway, having a total length of 14.5 kilometres, will be underground. Souflias said that this option will increase the cost of the project considerably, but it will result in the slopes of Imittos in the direction of Vyronas, Ilioupoli, Argyroupoli and Elliniko remaining intact. The sections that will not be built underground will be at locations where overpasses will exist.
One CANNOT praise enough Mr Souflias's obsession for the completion of the public works and infrastructures required for Athens.

With this new network of 30+ miles of new highways and their access roads and ancillary road systems, which is to be added to the existing efficient transport and road network that has successfully put to the test in the 2004 Olympics, by 2013-2015 Athens will have one of the most complete motorway systems in the European continent and by 2020 when I expect that ALL the works, including the new 20km line 4 of the metro system as well as the extensions of the suburban rail to be operational, the city will be close to perfect as far as its infrastructures are concerned with a complete motorway system, four lines of metro, one extensive network of suburban rail connections as well as an expanded tram network and new terminal(s) at its international airport.

The important element here are the 9 miles of tunnels below the Hymettus mountain which will allow the direct connection between Athens and eastern Attica (the greater prefecture) preventing at the same time the visual, aesthetic and environmental damage that would have been inflicted had the 6-8 lane motorway branches been allowed to run along the slopes of mount Hymettus this separating the municipalities of Vyronas, Argyroupolis and the rest of the affected suburbs, from the mountain. This development alone brings the new extensions at the forefront of urban developments on a pan-European scale as far as road infrastructures are concerned.

Also, a Chinese company called Cosco, made a full offer for two piers at the Piraeus port to be used exclusively by them as a gateway for China's products to the Mediterranean. According to the news, the port of Piraus will receive the mount of 4.5 bn Euros over 30 years as a rent for the use of the docks, excluding import taxes

Of course, all that is good but the old wolf here expects the last development needed, i.e. the abolishment of the 27m height limit for Athens and Greece which will allow the city to gain a robust look that will accompany the efficiency of its infrastructures.

“With these projects, we are doubling the roads with high-speed traffic and contributing decisively to upgrading the environment and easing traffic congestion in central Attica,” said Minister Giorgos Souflias.

Construction plans are based on six different projects that include linking the Attiki Odos to southern parts of the city, through a 14.5-kilometer underground tunnel that will ease traffic in the eastern and southern parts of the capital.

Plans also include the construction of a 3.5-kilometer tunnel through Mt Hymettus and reconstruction of parts of Poseidonos Avenue as an underground road.

Ninety percent of the total 55 kilometers will be underground.

The initial tender process is seen as being launched by the end of the year with the roads expected to be open for use in 2013, including the toll booths.

“Toll charges are a basic part of the tender and the only thing I can say is that the toll charges may be cheaper than those that we are paying on the existing Attiki Odos, but under no circumstances will they be more expensive,” said the minister.

Drivers will be hit with a toll charge through an electronic monitoring system that will determine the charge applicable, depending on the distance of the new road used by the vehicle.

According to the ministry when all the new planned roads will completed by 2013, Athens will have 170-180km of new roads.

Largest Shopping Center in Greece under construction:

Babis Vovos Shopping Center in Votanikos Area, Aghias Annis and Aghiou Polykarpou streets.

Image extracted from the BVIC 2007 Annual Report

According to recently published information extracted from the "Babis Vovos International Constructions" 2007, Annual Report, (click HERE to access the Greek language version) construction has began on the new shopping center which will, upon completion, be the largest in Greece as well as presumably the new flagship of the company's extensive property and project portfolio.

The complex constitutes part of a larger development in the previously derelict area which also includes a new state of the art football stadium for the Panathinaikos Football team, allegedly also built by the same general contractor. This stadium is expected to replace the existing Panathinaikos FC one already in use and release numerous acres of public space in Ampelokipi, one of the most densely populated inner city districts of Athens. Expected time of completion for both projects (stadium and shopping center) is the end of 2009.

The new shopping center is being built on a land plot with area 43,216 sq meters and will have a total surface of 69,000 sq meters above the ground, as well as a parking capacity of 2,400, presumably indoor.

We should note here that the area alone is not or is barely sufficient per se to dethrone the "Mall Athens" in Maroussi from its position as the largest shopping center in Greece with some 56,000 sq meters of Gross Leasable Area alone. However, if we take into account that the 69,000 refer to the total area above ground, meaning that probably the leasable or or otherwise usable space below ground is not included, we reach the conclusion that probably (according to what's already has sporadically been leaked to the press), we may be talking about a shopping center with some 70,000 square meters of Gross leasable space both above as well as below ground surface. Still we have to wait for these assumptions to be confirmed though.

What I may have reservations regarding the above is the fact that there are plenty of atria as well as other public spaces which make the existing "mall Athens" one of the best facilities of its kind in South Eastern Europe. I am not sure that the BVIC design for the new shopping center may be as generous in terms of the non-leasable public space areas of the shopping center.

In any case, I will not jump into conclusions on this until I see the end result which I don't doubt, will be great.

For your information, except from the above shopping centers, there are also others under construction, such as:

-The new 40K GLA (Gross Leasable Area) in Maroussi to come out of the refurbishment of the International Broadcasting Center (Completion end of 2008). Contractor: Latsis Group

-The new 38K GLA in Galatsi on the former Olympic Gymnastics hall, built by the Charagionis Group (possibly with the Portuguese Sonae Immobilaeria).

Also, we have a presumably gigantic project (the biggest in Sout6h-Eastern Europe if realized), presumably by REDS development which is still awaiting for the Green light with some alleged 110,000 square meters to be built at the Cambas Estate in the Messoghia region to the East of Attica. This is an old one but the information is still sketchy.

-Also, there are a number of smaller centers in the area of 20K-30K GLA still awaiting the Green light including the Discount center of McArthour Glenn for the Messoghia Area too. Still no news as the companies are reluctant to disclose much until the projects are well into construction after groundbreaking in which case the major tenants have already posi5tioned themselves and they have something solid to advertise for... .

The electronics chain "Saturn" is opening his first Hellenic store in Athens tomorrow. According to some German manager of the chain, the Athenian store is the 2nd biggest Saturn store in Europe (the first is in Germany).

Some time ago when it was U/C
