Potential of Thessaloniki
Thessaloniki (520 km. north of Athens) is the second largest city of Greece and the most important center of the area. Built near the sea (at the back of the Thermaïkos Gulf), it is a modern metropolis bearing the marks of its stormy history and its cosmopolitan character, which give it a special beauty and charm.
- Urban developments have a profound impact on the economy and housing market.
- Expansion of the airport: Opening the city to new and more international flights for tourists, professionals and investors.
- Expansion of the port: Enhancing the position of the Port of Thessaloniki in the global port industry and the supply chain sector while offering benefits to the Greek economy.
- Construction of the metro: Increasing convenience to commuters as well as the value of property in the city center.
- Technology Park: To be constructed on 72 hectares of land, Thess Intec will serve as an international technology and innovation park, complete with the necessary technical and building infrastructure and facilities. The park is set to host educational, research, financial and industry bodies allowing direct communication between stakeholders thus eliminating tedious red tape while attracting investor interest.
- Hotels: New Hotels are under construction in the city center of Thessaloniki
- Tourism: A strong rebound in tourism in the summer of 2021 is expected, with Israel and Britain, paving the way for tourists to return. Tourists could be welcomed to Greece as early as spring if they could provide proof of immunity. Short-term rentals such as Airbnb are predicted to increase, not only this summer but also for upcoming years, due to tourists looking for a safe way to enjoy their holidays
