The first stage of the reconstruction of the Larnaca municipal market has been completed.
On Tuesday, September 28, the mayor of the city announced the opening of a new parking lot. According to Andreas Vyras, residents and guests of the city will be provided with 83 parking spaces from October 1.
To revive and support the development of the Larnaca market, the municipality has decided not to charge drivers. Parking here will be completely free.
Vyras stressed that the municipality of the city is doing everything possible to complete the reconstruction of the remaining part of the municipal market as soon as possible.
As you may know, the construction of a new municipal market in Larnaca began at the end of September 2018.
The old municipal market building, built around the 1930s, was abandoned and gradually fell into disrepair until finally completely demolished in 1996. The construction of the new building is being carried out by Lois Builders, which won a tender among 5 bidders.
The project cost is estimated at 5.9 million euros.
The new municipal market is being built on the site of a parking lot in the city center, which has been in operation since 1996, when the old municipal market was demolished.
As planned by the architects, the area of the new market will be 2,000 m2, of which 1,200 m2 will be allocated for green spaces. The first level of the project will house 20 shops, an open air market and an information center. The area of the shops will be about 700 m2.
Four cafes, a small gallery and an exhibition space are planned on the mezzanine. In the upper part of the building, a terrace with a seating area, a roof garden with aromatic plants and three bars will be built. According to the municipality of Larnaca, the new market will be provided with everything necessary for people with disabilities.
It is worth noting that the Zuhuri (Zoukhouri) square is being renovated in this area. The Mayor of Larnaca stressed that renovation works are progressing according to the established schedule and the area will be restored on time.
