At road level there is a commercial zone, the spacious Piazza Armenia, created in the best architectural traditions of the historic cities of old Europe. We will reveal just a few features of this part of the project: semicircular ascents with stairs and balustrades trimmed with natural tuff, Venetian street lamps on cast-iron posts with wrought iron patterns, highlights of light in fountains, benches among lawns and flowers all in the shade of trees.
In the evening, the beautifully lit Piazza Armenia, leading to the Residences, is designed to become a new attraction not only in Limassol, but also throughout Cyprus.
At the same level there are the haute cuisine restaurant, spa, beauty salon, sauna, hammam, cryosauna, massage rooms, a heated indoor pool, a cigar lounge and VIP bar for club members, a wine boutique accomplished in the style of old Italian cellars and a delicatessen shop.
To the west and east, the piazza smoothly opens into private patios, hidden from prying eyes, where in the atmosphere of a tropical garden immersed in greenery and filled with fresh plants and gurgling water, the terrace of the haute cuisine restaurant will be located.
Also provided for are parking facilities for residents (36 spaces), as well as separate parking for visitors to the restaurant, commercial area and for guests (40 spaces).

A distinctive feature of the Residences is that you can arrive not only through two formal, semicircular stairs from the west and east side of the piazza or parking, but can also take off along the majestic flyover by car directly from the promenade, through a controlled entrance, and then leave from the opposite side. The main entrance to the reception area is decorated with a majestic and massive canopy with carved elements on steel cables in the style of Art Deco.
We are walking into the lobby, enjoying a variety of expensive marbles in elegant shades of beige, malachite and cream.
