The implementation of the ZARIA RESORT - GRAND HYATT LIMASSOL project is under threat of failure.
As it turned out, there are sand dunes and plants listed in the IUCN Red List of the flora of Cyprus on the site where the construction of the hotel complex is planned.
On Friday, April 2, the developer was ordered to re-examine the impact of this project on the development area.
In addition, local officials are concerned about the number of storeys in buildings. By the way, according to the rules, the maximum height of buildings in the selected tourist area (T3b) should not exceed 13.5 meters (3 floors). As for the Zaria Resort, the project involves the construction of a hotel block, which includes two wings (east and west), 32.9 m high (9 floors).
In the east wing in addition to the hotel block, residential development is proposed in the form of a 16-story tower. In other words, the proposed project is categorized as a high-rise building, but no Strategic Environmental Assessment has been evaluated for it.
As you may know, according to the plan, the large elite complex Zaria Resort should be located in Limassol near the seacoast, surrounded by luxury 5-star hotels: Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort and Spa and Sofitel.
Zaria Resort is a symbiosis of style, content and quality, where landscaping, thought out by the best architects, is combined with exquisite architecture. The area of the exclusive resort will be 10 hectares, each apartment will have a sea view.
The location with a natural slope of 32 meters will create a wonderful view of the clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
Apartment towers, townhouses, duplexes and villas will be connected by a network of underground parking lots. The complex includes:
- 1700 m2 fitness club "World Class" with a 25-meter swimming pool
- luxury spa offering comprehensive the Tavelis Spa concept treatments
- 6 outdoor pools (2 of them are seawater)
- 2 tennis courts
- multifunctional sports ground
- lounge area
- beach bar
- spacious indoor and outdoor play and educational areas for children.
The construction of the Zaria Resort complex involves 2 stages.
The first phase of the project includes the construction of the Sunrise and Sunset towers, connected by a single infrastructure complex with an area of more than 300 m2. The building complex will have 75 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as penthouses. During the second phase there will be 55 villas, townhouses and duplexes, each of which will have a privacy atmosphere.
The completion of the project was scheduled for 2025, but now its further fate is in doubt.
