The Greek Environment and Energy Ministry recently gave the green light for the casino on Mt. Parnitha to relocate to the northeastern Athens suburb of Marousi, after approving its special urban plan and environmental impact study.
The casino, known as the Regency Casino Mont Parnes, is planned to relocate to the “Dilaveri estate”, a property owned by the Laskaridis family and located at the junction of Kifissias Avenue and Spyrou Loui in the Municipality of Marousi.
According to an announcement by the ministry, the approval of the special urban plan completes the spatial organization of a section of the Dilaveri estate which stretches to a total of 50,173.72 square meters.
The ministry’s decision determines the land uses, the terms and restrictions of construction in the area and urban regulations.
In addition, a traffic study that includes planned improvements to the wider area, as well as for the ways of dealing with existing traffic problems, was also submitted to the ministry.
According to announced plans, more than 50 percent of the land will be used for the development of a park and communal green areas. Besides the casino, the property will also include a luxury hotel, a catering service, a conference room and a cultural/musical event venue.
