The new building can be classified as a skyscraper at 45 floors. Those floors will contain 200 apartments, which will mostly consist of one to four bedroom units. Every unit is designed to have a balcony.

The high rise, which will be the tallest “green” coastal skyscraper in the entirety of the Mediterranean region, boasts vertical gardens along its length as well as some of the newest environmentally-friendly features in architecture.
“A unique building for Greece and the world, an architectural landmark, with ‘green’ as its central axis, respect for the environment, and quality of life.

The Marina Tower will offer residents unobstructed views of nearby mountains as well as the bright blue Greek sea. It will also feature a private pool and is in the perfect location for those who want to have access to the city and the convenience it offers without being right in the middle of constant hustle and bustle.
