The Municipality of Geroskipou has submitted to the Cyprus Department of Environment the project of a grandiose sports complex "Eden". 

According to the release, it includes a football stadium, a swimming pool, bike paths and a station for servicing and repairing bicycles, areas for active recreation and sports.

It is worth noting that a sports complex is planned to be built near the Paphos airport, in Geroskipou, near the Mediterranean coast.

The Municipality of Geroskipou has submitted a new plan for the development of the coastal zone and is awaiting the transfer of land from the government to promote the project. We are actively negotiating with the competent government agencies on this issue. The municipality believes that higher-ranking officials should support the new development plan, since the long delay and freezing of EDEN CITY by the Hungarian investor led to the fact that our coastal area has not been used for many years in anticipation of a specific project," said the Mayor of Geroskipou.

Earlier, they wanted to build the EDEN CITY tourist complex on a coastal area of 7.5 hectares.

The project involved the construction of three towers in a modern futuristic style. The total building area would be about 45,000 m2. The largest building with a height of 14 floors was to house a hotel of a famous world brand with 168 rooms and 53 apartments, with spacious conference rooms, a SPA center, a swimming pool with sun loungers, a sports club, several restaurants and a luxurious rooftop terrace of 1,000 m2.

In addition, the project plan included the construction of an apartment complex consisting of two 12-storey residential buildings Aquamarine and Amethyst for 122 apartments of various types.

For a long time, local authorities disputed the implementation of this project, since the ruins of the ancient city of Hierokepia (Ἱεροκηπία) of the Hellenistic period were discovered on the building site.

The mayor of the municipality of Geroskipou said that it is absolutely impossible to destroy ancient ruins and erect new buildings in their place. He stressed that before the arrival of the Director of the Department of Antiquities, who should express her professional opinion, he does not even want to hear about the project.

In the end, the Department of Antiquities gave the go-ahead for the construction of the complex.

However, the Cyprus Department of Environment rejected the application. As a result, the project was frozen, and the municipality of Geroskipou began to prepare its own plan for the operation of this territory.

By the way, research into the construction of the EDEN CITY hotel, on land that belongs to the church, has been conducted since 2015. It all started with small test sites, work on which was completed in the summer of 2019.

In 2019, the Council of Ministers of Cyprus decided that church land could no longer be transferred to archaeologists if the church did not want it. In other words, the main religious institution of the republic has such rights to the territory that individuals and organizations do not have.
