AKTOR CONCESSIONS has signed a Concession Agreement for the right to use, operate, manage and develop the Alimos Marina for a period of 40 years -with the right of mutual extension for another 10 years.
This is the largest marina in the Balkans and a strategic investment of € 100 million on the rapidly developing coastal front of the Greek capital, with multiple added value, in both local and national level.
Alimos Marina is a point of reference for residents of the wider urban, visitors and owners of private and professional yachts, as it serves as an important departure point for a large number of yachts. It has an excellent strategic location, as it is located southwest of Athens, 15 km from the city center, 8 km south of the Port of Piraeus and 30 km from the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos, while it is served by a dense transport network, which includes Tram, Buses and Taxis.
In particular, the Concessionaire Company “DEVELOPMENT OF NEW ALIMOS MARINA”, a subsidiary of AKTOR CONCESSIONS, undertook the responsibility to reshape and regenerate the land and maritime areas, for the creation of a state-of-the-art, hospitable and integrated marina, which will be a landmark for the wider region, while contributing to the overall upgrade of the Greek tourism product.
The Development Plan provides the creation of a marina that will be a modern and attractive pole of leisure and business activity with upgraded, functional and outdoor spaces. In this new, multifaceted and protected environment, a series of business and recreational activities will be developed, with a set of options and services that will make Alimos Marina a point of reference for the “Athenian Riviera”, but also for the Mediterranean region.
In the land zone of the marina, that spans nearly across 210 acres, 18,000 m² of modern design, upscale ground floor or up to two stories premises will be developed for recreation, dining, hospitality services, office spaces, boat parking and repair services, as well as for commercial use. The surrounding area of the marina’s land zone will be landscaped in such a way so as to incorporate streets, pedestrian lanes, bicycle paths, parking spaces, as well as green areas to host outdoor cultural events for the visitors. Moreover, both the working spaces that will be constructed, as well as the warehouses, the repair services spaces and the retail establishments will be addressed to the most important companies in professional yacht charters, as well as to other companies that are active in the boats segment, the tourism sector as well as to the wider entrepreneurship.
The maritime zone of the Alimos Marina, an area of 428 acres, disposes of nearly 1,000 berths, after the reconstruction of the floating pontoons, which will present a new, modern design that will make the best use of the necessary space for offering top quality services to the vessels and their users. Furthermore, special attention will be paid to the modernization of important areas for the smooth operation of the dock, such as modern establishments (pillars) for boats refueling, other safety facilities, lighting, security with automated surveillance systems etc.
Finally, there will be special provision for maintaining the marina area and especially the waterfront area clean, in order to protect the environment from the marina operation, preserve the high cleaning standards and comply with the regulation for the collection and disposal of all waste (liquid and solid, from vessels and other uses).
