Α step forward has been taken in the case of the casino in Elliniko since, as it became known, the technical offer of Mohegan-GEK TERNA consortium was approved by the Gaming Supervision and Control Committee (EEEEP), which is also the finalist for this large-scale project.

What remains now is the award of the tender, a step which is currently unknown when it will take place due to the pending case of Hard Rock International’s appeal to the Council of State. It is reminded that the American company made this move despite the repeated negative decisions for it in this tender, due to the rejection of its offer.

The completion of the tender for the Integrated Resort Casino (IRC), is a basic deferral condition for the initiation of the project in Elliniko, which means that the relevant contract must first be signed in order for the signatures concerning the large investment in the spaces of former international airport to be completed.

Inspire Athens

The official name given by Mohegan-GEK TERNA consortium is “Inspire Athens” and is a mega-project, in fact the largest building project in Greece, while for GEK TERNA will be a top addition to the portfolio of projects that implements.

“Inspire Athens”, the first integrated tourist complex with casino in Greece, consists of a luxury hotel, entertainment venues, conference center, shops, restaurants, as well as a complete range of high quality services. The project will help to inaugurate a new era of touristic development and economic prosperity for Greece and the whole region.

The flagship design of the building is a creation of the international architectural firm Steelman Partners, which specializes in the design and construction of IRC complexes.
