New Agreement for Sale of Astir Palace Signed

Astir Palace ResortThe new agreement for the concession of the Astir Palace Resort has been signed by main stakeholder National Bank, Greek state privatization fund TAIPED and the preferred bidder, Jermyn Street Real Estate Fund.

Astir Palace ResortAccording to an announcement on Sunday by TAIPED, the agreement, signed on December 31, 2015, paves the way for the submission of an amended and “milder” Special Zoning and Spatial Plan.

Jermyn Street Real Estate had submitted the highest bid at 400 million euros for a 90 percent stake in Astir Palace in February 2014. The transaction for the sale of the historic coastal resort had been on the back-burner after the Council of State rejected terms of the deal in March of that year that foresaw among others the construction of up to 100 luxury villas on a section of the peninsula.

The new agreement ensures that the Plan is adjusted to the Council of State’s amendments and provides for the same price of 400 million euros.

The whole process is expected to be completed within the first half of 2016.

The new agreement includes two 6-star hotels to replace the Arion and Westin units, 13 luxury villas and the upgrade of the marina.

Astir Palace is located in the southern Athens suburb of Vouliagmeni.
