Mayor of Larnaca Andreas Viras said that at the end of September the construction of the municipal market will begin. This will take care of the winning company Lois Builders. She said that she would cope with the project for 5,9 million euros. According to TheCyprus Mail, the construction will begin with the closure of the parking in the city center, which has been operating since 1996 when the old municipal market was demolished.
The area of the new market will be 2000 square meters, of which 1200 will be given under the green spaces. At the first level, there will be 20 stores, an open air market and an information center. In the mezzanine four cafes, a small gallery and a place for exhibitions are planned. In the upper part of the building there will be a terrace with a sitting area and a roof garden with aromatic plants and three open bars.
