Welcome to Europe’s new Riviera
Enjoy year-round sunshine at Limassol Blu Marine amid all the trappings of Cyprus’s most cosmopolitan lifestyle centre
Despite the global pandemic, property construction in Limassol, Cyprus has remained strong along the west side of the city, in an area now being dubbed “Europe’s new Riviera” by developers Leptos Estates. Sales at the developer’s latest, high end development Limassol Blu Marine, have now totalled €100m as buyers seek year-round sunshine and take advantage of Cyprus’s permanent residency programmes.
The luxury development is one of several taking shape over the past year, including bespoke residential and shopping destination, Limassol Del Mar to the east and the new City of Dreams Mediterranean, to the west. The foundations of the first tower at Limassol Blu Marine were laid by a 140-strong construction crew working day and night throughout December.
Leptos Group’s Limassol Blu Marine will contribute significantly to the Cypriot economy and will be at the heart of Limassol. It is destined to be a world-renowned address, a luxury destination for buyers to live, work, shop and dine. It will create a new prime location for the city and create jobs in both the construction and service industry. The Mayor of Limassol refers to the exciting new Aktaia Odos area where Limassol Blu Marine is located as “a city within a city”, and is part of a wider master plan that will see over 1.5 kilometres of multi-million-euro infrastructure investment, rivalling the regeneration of the French Riviera.
Pantelis Leptos, Deputy President of Leptos Group of Companies, comments: “We are excited to be a part of this pivotal change in Limassol, contributing to the upmarket residential, business and leisure revival along the seafront. The infrastructure investments along this stretch will act as a major catalyst and drive the development of the area, at an unprecedented rate for Cyprus.
“Limassol Blu Marine is the only development that gives you the option to open an office and build a home here in one location. The uptick in sales we have seen at this development in recent months is a reflection of how people are living their lives post pandemic, wanting somewhere with all round sunshine and a place worth investing in.” ™
The development has already attracted interest from foreign investors and a large number of buyers of high-end apartments, and aims to establish the area as a prime location for new Cypriot and foreign companies working in innovation, technology and the finance sector. Buyers from the UK, Russia, Middle East and the Far East are being enticed by the cosmopolitan island that offers 300 days of sunshine and a permanent residency programme that allow for longer movement across the EU, post-Brexit.
The high-end luxury development offers a place for residential, business and pleasure purposes, all within the area of the city buzzing with change. Set in the heart of Limassol on the seafront, Limassol Blu Marine includes a selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments across three impressive towers named after ancient Greek Gods, all with panoramic sea views. The architecture by Benoy Architects – the experts behind Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Westfield London – worked with Leptos Estates to design the landmark scheme that offers an unrivalled lifestyle in the heart of the new Riviera.
Each apartment offers carefully-planned interiors maximising on south facing views over the Mediterranean Sea and include open plan living, with large balconies, premium specification and interior finishes with smart home technology. Residents will also be able to take advantage of the elevated podium over the sea, which will host a spectacular 50-metre infinity pool, landscaped gardens, a double height gym, bistro and lobby with 24-hour concierge. A luxury health and wellness facility offering treatment rooms, sauna, steam rooms and a 25-metre heated, indoor pool also makes these apartments an exceptional place to call home.
The new neighbourhood of Aktaia Odos has been planned with state-of-the-art residential and commercial properties, mixed with attractive tourism and leisure options that sit in green spaces, with bicycle lanes and pedestrian walkways. The area, in accordance with the strategy of CIPA (Cyprus Investment and Promotion Agency) is set to become a hub for international headquarters with some 14,000 new jobs being created.\
