Marco Polo is located adjacent to the St Raphael Marina which is located 6 miles East of Limassol centre and is part of the luxury 5 star St Raphael Resort. The only private Marina in Cyprus, St Raphael has over 230 berths for yachts up to 30 m LOA and a world class luxury resort on its doorstep this marina can cater for all.
The concept for this luxury development was developed in order to maximize south facing terraces. The local Cypriot norms allow for a limit of 25% of the overall internal area to be added as 'covered veranda' unless the terrace is open to the sky. In order to exceed the 25%, every floor was offset by 1.5 m to create a large area of 'uncovered terrace' on each floor and resulting in supersized sea-facing terraces on each floor.
Offsetting each floor resulted in a building with an incline of over 20 degree. This presented unique technical challenges in terms of structure and vertical transportation, but gives the building a totally unique look which is emphasised by articulating each floor as stacked on top of one another.
The development itself will be located on a 7,433 m² south facing seafront plot accessed from the main B2 costal road. The property has direct access to the beach and a seafront promenade leading to the Marina. The plot is surrounded by low rise super-prime private residences and therefore offers undisturbed 360 degree view at a height of over 10 metres.
The building consists of all south facing luxury 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom duplex apartments.
