With a premier seafront location on a Blue Flag beach, the project is spread across 10 hectares of lush parkland.

Located immediately above the hotel, the 24-floor residential tower will offer apartments with infinite 360-degree views of the Mediterranean coastline and surrounding mountains. The tower will also feature a designated amenity space for residents and will provide a private entrance with 24/7 security and underground parking, an infinity rooftop swimming pool and kid's pool with sun loungers, a wellness bar and a fresh local Mediterranean herb garden, a lounge area, a business center, a library, a cinema room, and a kid’s playroom. The development will also include gated community villas whose residents will enjoy lush landscaping and long promenades, as well as kids’ playgrounds, outdoor sport facilities, a dedicated yoga and meditation area, and complete privacy in a secure environment.

Under the new contract, the Hill International team will provide project management services for both, pre-construction (including design review) and construction stages (including project controls, contract administration, claims management, construction supervision, commissioning, and licensing), of the development. 

“We are delighted to collaborate with such prominent partners of international renown,” says Allea Group’s General Manager, Anton Samokhvalov. “Hill International will help make our vision a reality as we push boundaries to create a totally unique environment for Cyprus standards, with a focus on superior quality and green sustainable living where wellbeing and a connection to nature are paramount.”

We are honored to be selected by Anolia Holdings Ltd as their PM partner and delighted to see our operations in the country grow further with such a significant project.”
