First delivered refurbishments funded by the "Prosopsi" program are changing the vibe in the Athenian neighborhoods
223 apartment buildings, 67 single-family houses and 78 preserved buildings have already been comprised in the program's funding.
The changes in the Athenian properties that have been refurbished through the so called "Prosopsi" program are apparently obvious for local citizens and tourists that visit the city's neighborhoods.
Facades of buildings that until very recently were worn and covered in gray color duw to the air pollution in the city's center throughout the decades, are now being revealed and are color, entering the "canvas" of the capital.
The massive project, which was initially launched last June, is being implemented by the Municipality of Athens, Anaplasi Athens S.A. and the Technical Chamber of Greece and aims to restore the de, to maintain and upgrade the aesthetics of the facades of the buildings of the capital.
Athenian citizens' interest in the project that transforms the facades of their properties is extremely intense. To date, more than 400 applications have been submitted, absorbing 100% of the initial budget of the action (1.7 million euros), which was increased by 1 million euros, in order to benefit more citizens of Athens.
223 apartment buildings, 67 single-family houses and 78 preserved buildings have already been comprised in the program's funding. The procedures for the inclusion of those interested in the program are being carried out digitally, achieving the fastest service to the beneficiaries. Membership applications are approved within a month, while the subsidy is quickly paid to the beneficiaries after the submission of the final supporting documents.
It is remarkable that to date 91% of those interested -that is translated to 368 property owners- have already received approval in order to proceed with aesthetic and functional upgrading works.
All private buildings within the Municipality of Athens can be included in the program, i.e. detached houses, semi-detached houses, apartment buildings and listed buildings. It foresees a maximum subsidy amount of 6,000 euros per building, while especially for listed buildings the subsidy can reach up to 7,200 euros per building.
