CONTACTS for the construction of the Limassol ‘Icon’ were signed on 19th October between the Imperio Group of Companies and Iacovou Brothers at the headquarters of Imperio in Limassol.

At a height of 125 metres, it will be the fourth tallest building in Cyprus and will be built on Limassol’s coastal road in Germasogia. Work is underway and it is expected to be delivered by December 2020.

When completed the Icon will provide a total of 54 fully equipped and furnished apartments offering one-bedroom to penthouses and whole floor units; 35% of the apartments have already been sold.

The development will include a water club (featuring an infinity-edge pool) a restaurant, a fitness and yoga club and a tennis court. The Icon will provide a concierge and a 24-hour reception service and other services including housekeeping, room service, dry cleaning and tailoring.

    @ Martyn G. Very well summarised.

    I fear there is nothing that can stop the greed of land-owners, lenders and developers in this once fair land.

    It will be up to the next generation to undo the rot started by their parents and grandparents.

    Interesting to see the Pic of the ‘Icon’ and learn that it is to proceed.

    Even more interesting to note that this is an approx 20 storey building.

    It gives an excellent insight/perspective into what Limassol see front could look like when the 10, 20, some favour 30!, FIFTY storey blocks, all the way along the once delightful Limassol sea-front.

    There still seems amidst a culture of seemingly near-zero Town/City planning in this country, city a gung-ho approach to building with little deep thought, planning about infrastructure, safety, demand (!). With economic and global shifts it would be quite possible to ruin a lovely city with half-built or empty skyscraper blocks, a further polluted ocean and a large-scale problem such as we have seen elsewhere in this country with massive over-development, over-provision of often sub-standard domestic building, lack of planning – and quality – over recent decades.

    So, best of Luck to the Developers, builders, and to Limassol City of the Icon project. Let it be a guide to what future MUCH larger-scale developments might emerge to ruin a currently still delightful City!
