Foster & Partners, a prestigious British architectural company, was responsible for the design of this remarkable building. The skyscraper will stand at a height of 200 meters and cover a total of 50 floors.
Within its walls will be 169 flats and penthouses, with bedroom counts ranging from one to five. It is said that the natural nature of the region served as an inspiration for the building's construction. Even more, the developer asserts that the high-rise building will have less of an impact on the natural environment than a low-rise structure will.

The design of the building has been meticulously considered with sustainability and experience in mind. Taller buildings reduce surface coverage, resulting in more space for the green, open areas that the Ellinikon is committed to bringing to the people of this city.- Angeliki Touziou
As we continue to hold environmental protection and energy reduction at the forefront of our goals, the Riviera Tower and the Ellinikon’s additional high-rise towers will benefit the environment through smart urban densification and accompanying green space.- Angeliki Touziou
The beginning of construction work on the Riviera Tower took place earlier this year. The structure is scheduled to be finished during phase 1 of the Ellinikon project, and handover is anticipated to occur during the first quarter of 2026.
The Riviera Tower is the first residential skyscraper in the city to be pre-certified with LEED at the Gold Level. This adds to the city's already extensive selection of commercial offerings that have earned the LEED Gold certification.
