The projected completion date for the venture is December 2020. Ms Elena Batorina, a wealthy Russian oligarch has submitted plans to build an exclusive and sophisticated 13 story residential development of more than 8,000 square metres on the seafront and close to Limassol city centre. The plot of 4,800 square metres where the project will be constructed was acquired in November 2016. The Entrepreneur turned to a renowned Spanish Architect and his studio Taller de Arquitectura, to develop the structural and design plans.

In addition to apartments, there will be facilities such as underground parking, a health and fitness state of the art zone, trendy recreational areas, a swimming pool and private gardens for each apartment.
