Visiting the project, the mayor of Larnaca, Andreas Vyras, said that this is an important day for the city, and the work that began many years ago has come to an end.
This is a project that the people of Larnaca have been waiting for a very long time. The construction of the market had a number of problems. However, we managed to complete the work we started, and we are incredibly happy about it, said Vyras.
The Mayor of Larnaca noted that all shops areas will immediately be transferred to first businessmen. He also mentioned that the municipality has concluded 18 contracts out of 20 possible with various entrepreneurs. The agency also managed to lease out restaurants and coffee shops on the territory of the new market.
According to Vyras, the goal of the Larnaca municipality is to ensure the stable operation of the market from March 1.
The construction of the new municipal market of Larnaca began at the end of September 2018.
The project became 'famous' thanks to numerous delays, as previous contractors constantly violated the terms of the contract and missed the deadlines for the completion of the building. Therefore, the large project, which was supposed to be completed in the spring of 2020, dragged on for many years.
The final cost of the project was 7.2 million euros.
The new municipal market is built on a downtown parking lot that has been in operation since 1996 when the old municipal market was demolished. The area of the new market is 2,000 m2, of which 1.2 thousand m2 is given over to green spaces. The first level of the building will have 20 shops, an open-air market, and an information center. The total area of shops is about 700 m2.
Four cafes, a small gallery and a place for exhibitions will be on the mezzanine. Upper part of the building will have a terrace with a seating area, a roof garden with aromatic plants and three bars. In addition to the above, the project includes a 6-level parking lot with 180 spaces. Also, the new market is provided with everything necessary for people with disabilities.
