Hill International Selected as Project Manager for Redevelopment of the Astir Palace Resort in Athens


17 March 2014 – Marlton, NJ, USA and Athens, Greece – Hill International has announced that it has received a contract from Jermyn Real Estate Fund IV L.P. (“Jermyn Street”), a fund advised by London-based AGC Equity Partners Limited to provide project management services for the redevelopment of the Astir Palace resort in Athens, Greece.

140317-pmwj21-astir-IMAGEAstir is widely regarded as the “crown jewel” resort of the Athenian coastline and, arguably, the site is one of the most attractive parcels of land along the Eastern Mediterranean coast. Indeed, it is a unique natural peninsula, providing an exceptional island feel in the heart of the elite area of the Athenian Riviera, Vouliagmeni.

Spread over about 300,000 square meters (75 acres), the asset comprises two owned and currently operating five-star hotels, one non-operating hotel, 58 owned bungalows as well as leases to the prominent Vouliagmeni luxury yacht marina and the nearby prestigious Astir beach. Jermyn Street’s vision is to redevelop Astir into a genuinely world-class, ultra-high-end, Mediterranean hospitality and lifestyle experience.

“We look forward to assisting our client with the redevelopment of this unique and idyllic property into a truly world-class destination. This assignment underscores our confidence in Greece’s development potential in general and the hospitality and leisure sectors in particular,” said Raouf S. Ghali, President of Hill’s Project Management Group (International).
