On behalf of the Municipality of Athens, ADDMA is delivering an ambitious 10-year development plan known as The Athens Project, the plan is all about improving quality of life in the city, encouraging tourism and nurturing local entrepreneurship. Creative, extrovert and with a distinctly youthful feel, the new characteristics of the transformed city will make Athens both a better place to live and visit.
The Athens Project has already secured funding for €120 million worth of projects while an additional €54 million are being sought to finance maturing projects.
