Lamda Development today released designs for Marina Tower, the first green high-rise building in Greece. Located in the Agios Kosmas marina area and one of Ellinikon’s first architectural landmarks, Marina Tower will be the tallest building in Greece and the tallest green beachfront high-rise building in the Mediterranean. With dominant green and water features, natural light and unobstructed sea views, the building brings an innovative design approach to the region.
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.
The Marina Tower is one of the greenest high-rise buildings in the world and is a model of sustainable design, incorporating best environmental practices and cutting-edge international safety protocols. All apartments will have pioneering services and amenities, excellent construction materials that are environmentally friendly and specifications of a smart building.
