AURA is our vision for an extraordinary residential building that, through exceptional architectural design, use of the latest technology and highest levels of sustainability, will become a landmark on the Limassol skyline. AURA will offer a remarkable living experience, privacy, comfort and panoramic views of the Mediterranean.
Designed by world leading architects, Foster + Partners, at 197m-high, AURA will consist of 137 residences, on 37 residential floors, comprising 2-4 en-suite bedroom apartments and a 5 en-suite bedroom penthouse, each with sizable verandas.
The building will be raised 23.9m from ground level, creating the impression that it is floating high above the landscaped gardens below. Spanning 7,000 sqm and 200m long, the gardens seamlessly connect the beach and the park creating an urban communal space that is accessible for all of Limassol.
AURA’s prime Limassol coastal road location is across from the sandy beach and within easy walking distance from the city centre and business district. This highly sought-after location is in close proximity to numerous shops, vibrant bars and restaurants. It is also easily accessible, only 45 minutes by car from Larnaka and Pafos International airports.
Limassol Beach & Seaview Properties Ltd, a private company, is a subsidiary of Woolworth (Cyprus) Properties Plc, a public listed company. It is the owner of 10,082sqm of prime, beachfront freehold land near the centre of Limassol where AURA will be developed. Woolworth is the property arm of Cyprus Trading Corporation Plc (CTC), a highly experienced and trusted developer listed on the Cyprus Stock Exchange, a leading business group, with N.K. Shacolas (Holdings) Ltd being the major shareholder with a controlling stake of 87 per cent.
The company recruited the services of internationally renowned architects Foster + Partners, whose award-winning projects range from cultural to residential, and from offices and headquarters, to transport and infrastructure.
The company has also appointed Hilson Moran, an international multidisciplinary practice offering design services for the mechanical, electrical and built environment, as well as innovative environmental project solutions; and AKTII, an award-winning, progressive design-led structural and civil engineering firm.
