WORLD NEWS Pilea Marina set to transform Thessaloniki waterfront GREECE: The Municipality of Pilea-Hortiatis has initiated a significant €45 million development project by announcing plans for Pilea Marina. The municipality will manage the marina in an effort to upgrade the area, generate significant economic benefits and create an important number of new jobs. Marina destination in southwest Africa NAMIBIA: The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) is developing a marina and waterfront destination alongside its new container terminal in the port of Walvis Bay. The project is earmarked as a major attraction for locals and visitors. The feasibility study for the development was undertaken in 2014/15 by Dutch company Royal Haskoning as main consultant, working with Macintosh & Lautenbach Architects, Jordaan Oosthuysen and WA Yachting Consultants. Plans include hotels, spa, gym, conference centre, public amphitheatre, maritime museum, restaurants, public park and beach, luxury residential blocks and outdoor market space. The project will be developed in phases. Portuguese company Lindley was selected by main contractor China Harbour to design and supply all concrete pontoons for the marina and to supervise installation on site. Lindley has already supplied a 175m (574ft) long, 4m (13ft) wide steel reinforced concrete wave attenuator (right). This is fixed to the seabed by concrete piles and can be accessed via a 15m (49ft) long aluminium gangway. It is equipped with electricity, water and emergency services. Bauart Architects The move comes at a challenging time in Greece, but local mayor, Ignatios Kaitezidis, decided the visionary project will contribute to the overall development of the Pilaia suburbs and boost Thessaloniki’s destination appeal with a modern world-class marina. The marina design includes berthing facilities for nine boat categories, ranging from small vessels (up to 8m/26ft) to megayachts (35-75m/115-246ft). There will be a total of 440 berths, making it one of the largest marinas in southeast Europe. Set within a project area of 39 acres (15.7ha), the development will include seven buildings for use as administration offices, sanitary facilities, bank, chandlery, shops etc. There will be boat repair and maintenance areas, a yacht club with terrace, parking for 270 vehicles, sports facilities, green spaces, walking and cycling routes. Following the zoning permitting published in the Official Government Gazette, the Municipality of Pilea- Hortiatis and the Ministry of Tourism need to proceed with the signature of the project’s binding agreement, which will determine the rights and obligations of both parties in terms of the marina project. Marina construction will start further to an international bid to determine investor interest. - November/December 2019 11
