The long-awaited €1.2billion redevelopment of Larnaca port and marina got the final green light after the Transport Ministry sent a ‘Successful Tenderer Letter’ to the chosen consortium after protracted negotiations.

Tender negotiations between the two sides have been ongoing since late 2018
when the consortium’s bid was the only one left on the table after a number of
bidders pulled out.

Cyprus Transport Ministry said the letter essentially marks the end of the tender
process and the whole project can now move on to the next stage with the signing of contracts between the two sides.

Once the agreement is signed, a 12-month transition period will follow during
which the investor will take over the project in its entirety.

This involves the restructuring of the marina for at least 650 berths, the port and surrounding land development over an area of 220,000 sqm spanning to a total of 510,000 sqm. The development, which also involves real estate, is expected to see the consortium invest around €1.2 bln in the project.

Plans include the development of the marina with the latest technological infrastructure, turning Larnaca port it into one capable of serving large vessels with the expansion of piers, docks and the construction of a modern passenger terminal. As part of the marina development, there will be a yacht club with a retail park, plus hotels and a private island.

Port works will also include the expansion and management of the port,
improving current infrastructure such as the interior road network, storage space
as well as creating a new terminal for cruise ships and utilizing the port for cargo
management.

The area between the marina and the port will see infrastructure works carried
out, including a road network, green areas, parks, open spaces for events, as
well as education and medical centre.

The consortium is also planning residential and commercial development with
innovative architecture, streets, and parks.

The project is expected to be completed over a period of 10 to 15 years.

According to the Transport Ministry, the project’s added benefits to the economy should surpass €120 mln annually once fully developed. Under the proposed venture, it is estimated that the state will receive more than €19.6 bln during the lifetime of the project which includes the 125-year lease on the real estate.

After 40 years the port and marina can be handed back to the government who
will then decide on their management.
