Property users briefed on Piale Pasia revamp

Piale Pasha

Ahead of the launch of tenders, authorities have reached out to property users on Larnaca’s Piale Pasia Avenue informing them of an ambitious revamp of building facades.

The letters were sent out by the custodian of Turkish Cypriot properties to individuals holding leases, asking for their consent for the work that will be carried out.

They are accompanied by information and photographic material with an accurate depiction of the current situation and a detailed analysis of the work to be done.

Property users are informed about the current state of damage and the interventions which have been made and set out what changes will be made, including the walls, the frames, the advertising awnings, the signs, the mailboxes and various defects in the buildings.

The letters also explain what work will be carried out, including removal of unused cables as the buildings are spruced up.

According to Larnaca Mayor Andreas Vyras, initial plans were to change the colour of facades at a cost of around €100,000, but it was then decided to press ahead with a total facelift of the façades, bringing the budget to €1.1 million.

This project will be financed by the EU, with bids expected to be launched in early July subject to some final approvals still pending.

As the works will start in autumn, the tourist season will not be affected, he added.

A number of colours were selected by the experts, including indigo which has come to be associated with listed buildings in Larnaca.
