The HACCI National Federation introduces The Ellinikon to Australia

·

The Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HACCI) National Federation completed its first co-organised public activity last week, hosting a series of events in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Darwin, presenting The Ellinikon, Europe’s largest urban renewal project, currently in development at the renowned Athens riviera.

Close to 400 people attended the events, hosted by the respective Hellenic Australian Chambers in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, and the Northern Territory, in collaboration with the Limnios Property Group, Marketing Partners for the Ellinikon development throughout Australia.

The five events brought together members of the Hellenic Australian business community, industry leaders, governmental representatives, prospective investors, and friends of the Greek Australian community.

Each event provided attendees with an insightful live-stream presentation directly from Athens by Andreas Kambanellas, Commercial Director Residential at LAMDA Development S.A. – the Perth event also featured Stratos Chalkiadakis, Senior Residential Sales Operations Manager. The presentations highlighted the project’s unique design, innovative use of space, and its commitment to environmental responsibility, including recycling existing concrete from the site.

The audience were given an overall view of the project and the development progress that is well underway with several neighbourhoods to be completed in 2026 including the Ellinikon Riveria Tower, which will be Greece’s tallest building.

Following the presentations, Mr Kambanellas answered questions from the audience, offering clarifications on the project’s sustainability, the construction progress, the sales phases, as well as technical questions around taxation, financing, and the property management model.

A transformative AU$13 billion investment, the Ellinikon is reshaping the landscape of the former Athens International Airport into a model city for the future. Spanning 620 hectares, equivalent to three times the size of Monaco, this visionary project is setting new benchmarks in urban development. It integrates cutting-edge technology with sustainability practices, including waste, energy, and water management,
to create a future-ready urban environment.

With its integrated 2 million square meter parkland, high-rise buildings, shopping, leisure, sports and entertainment precincts, and a state-of-the-art marina, the Ellinikon is designed as a 15-minute city, redefining what it means to live sustainably in tomorrow’s urban landscapes and putting Athens at the forefront of global urban development.

Fotini Kypraios, Chair of the HACCI National Federation Council, expressed her pride in presenting The Ellinikon to the Hellenes and Philhellenes of the Australian diaspora. She emphasised the project’s significance in fostering bilateral collaboration opportunities and strengthening the connection between Greece and its diaspora.
