Little Athens: A Glimpse into the Future of Urban Living

215 new apartments, in three new residential developments, have been announced by Lamda Development, in Little Athens, a new residential enclave in The Ellinikon, Europe’s largest urban regeneration project in Athens.

Located in the centre of The Ellinikon project, Little Athens is a lively neighbourhood that presents contemporary residences, inspired and crafted by distinguished local and foreign architects.

Leading architecture firms, including 314 Architecture Studio, Deda & Architects and Tsolakis Architects, have been appointed to design homes that display an acute awareness of the surrounding area and the available local materials.

Architectural Brilliance and Strategic Coastal Positioning

The architectural brilliance of Little Athens is represented by the special neighbourhood design.

Enclosed by the lush landscape of The Ellinikon Park, Europe’s largest pedestrian avenue, and the coastal front, the residents of the area can enjoy peaceful and refreshing surroundings for relaxation, recreation and fitness. This orientation towards health and well-being characterises the design philosophy of Little Athens.

Each apartment features dual facades and continuous balconies that merge indoor and outdoor living, ensuring residents enjoy both scenic beauty and urban conveniences.

Promenade Heights: A Modern Architectural Gem

Promenade Heights is a contemporary architectural masterpiece in Little Athens. Designed by 314 Architecture Studio, the complex includes nine circular and elliptical buildings, cleverly planned around a central green paradise and directly connected to The Ellinikon Park. The warm colours, textured walls and stylish finishes characterise each residence, offering a contemporary-comfort vibe.

Promenade Heights is expected to be completed in Q4 2026. Secure underground parking and storage units provide residents with an easy and comfortable lifestyle for the most selective inhabitants.

Starting from €470,000, the luxury experience of the development offers amenities that combine comfort with convenience.

Trinity Gardens: A Harmony of Nature and Urban Living

Trinity Gardens sits harmoniously within a peaceful location in Little Athens, only 150 metres from the coastal front. This development is designed by Tsolakis Architects and comprises three distinct buildings strategically positioned around a triangular courtyard. The design harnesses natural sea breezes and optimises light, providing panoramic vistas and abundant natural light.

Trinity Gardens features 80 apartments ranging from one to four bedrooms over up to five storeys. The bright and airy interiors are enhanced by generous outside space and breathtaking views.

Whether on the top floor with private roof gardens or ground-floor residences with private gardens, residents will enjoy a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living. Prices start from €370,000, making these residences both luxurious and affordable.

Atrium Gardens: Inspired by Coastal Beauty

Designed by Deda & Architects, Atrium Gardens takes coastal inspiration from its surrounding natural landscape. Soft edges resemble the natural shapes of waves and pebbles, while curved balconies are decorated in pale colours and wooden screens.

These architectural details provide natural shading all year round and enhance the outdoor connection, offering a luxury way of living.

The complex includes 56 apartments, from one to four bedrooms, in four buildings, up to five storeys. The penthouse units offer private roof gardens and jacuzzies. In addition, the residences in the ground floor have private gardens.

Other features include underground parking and storage units, as well as views of the sea, the mountains, the Ellinikon Park, the city and Mount Hymettus. Starting from €400,000, the prices reflect the high quality of the finishes and the prime location of the apartments.
