Located in the Agios Kosmas marina area and one of Ellinikon Masterplan’s first architectural landmarks, Marina Tower will be the tallest building in Greece and the tallest green beachfront high-rise building in the Mediterranean.

Antoinette Nassopoulos-Erickson
, Senior Partner at Foster + Partners said: “Ellinikon masterplan gives new direction to urban development in Athens, bringing together new ways of living, working and playing, centred on a metropolitan park – a generous amenity for local communities and the city of Athens. Our proposals for Marina Residential Tower build on these sustainable principles to generate a new paradigm for high-rise living and a green beacon in the landscape.”

 

Rising to 200 meters above sea level, Marina Tower will have 200 apartments on 45 floors. On completion – within the next five years – it will be one of the six tall buildings to be developed at the Ellinikon. The key characteristic of the design approach is the creation of a building with a slim silhouette, that harmonically blends with the natural environment and the special character of the Mediterranean landscape. The green and water elements enhancing the building’s bioclimatic nature.
