El Aeropuerto de Sálonica, situado a 14 km de la ciudad, tiene un tráfico de 3.5 millones de pasajeros al año. Siendo el segundo mayor aeropuerto de Grecia, su tráfico aéreo no complace las necesidades a las que se enfrenta una ciudad en plena expansión, y cuyas infraestructuras actualmente están en un amplio y costoso proceso de desarrollo.
Las conexiones hacia el aeropuerto necesitan de una mejora infraestructural, puesto que se accede por la carretera de Thessaloniki - Neon Moudanio la cual carece de las suficiente infraestr... [Ampliar]

Tras el análisis de las zonas verdes de la ciudad, junto a la zona portuaria que ocupa una gran superficie del borde junto al mar, y la delimitación del centro, se propone una pequeña ampliación e intervención en el paseo marítimo colindante a la zona centro, que abarca desde la Torre Blanca, hasta el puerto.
Con esta intervención se pretende dotar al centro de un borde verde fronterizo y relacionado con el mar. Dada la alta densidad del centro y la ausencia de numerosos espacios públicos y zonas verdes, es junto al mar, donde se busca ... [Ampliar]

Region Of Central Macedonia. Farmakis Camp, Thessaloniki ARIS Architects
The city of Thessaloniki has always been the center of the Greek army forces. This has granted the city with 7 large army camps inside its borders. However, the last years the ministry of defense is donating this high-value land back to the cities (likewise in Patras) . The region of Central Macedonia is planning to unite its divisions under one building in FARMAKIS camp.
Farmakis Camp occupies a total area of 65.000 sq.m. It is going to host as well divisions of the Perfecture of Thessaloniki.
The building area will be 3.500 sq.m. and the total area of the building will reach 15.000 sq.
The building is located in an area out of the town of Thessaloniki on a main highway. It is a 1500sqm office building in three levels. The necessity of natural lighting and ventilation of the building guided as at the division of the building in smaller volumes.
One of the main concepts was the creation of an internal courtyard which would divide the volumes of the building but in the meanwhile it will connect them through a tranquil, secure and pleasant enclosed space. This internal courtyard will be the heart of the building and an interesting and agreeable area for the employees of the building to relax, communicate an... [Ampliar]

The construction of the much awaited Thessaloniki metro started in June 2006 and should be completed by late 2014. Although the first to suggest an underground railway system for Thessaloniki was Ernest Hébrard during the redesign of the city in the early 1920s to allow easy access from the city's downtown to the planned outskirts of the city (now Kalamaria), the idea was only seriously considered in the 1980s and it took almost 20 years for groundbreaking work to start. This was due to a series of failed contract competitions and several appeals to awarded contracts.
The first phase of the project consists of 9.6 km of underground line (with twin tunnels) with 13 stations, and a depot at the east end... [Ampliar]
The Underwater Artery in Thessaloniki, Greece is a planned multilane stretch of expressway along the seafront of the city and underneath the seabed. Its purpose is to alleviate traffic problems within the city center.
Proposals for the construction of the Underwater Artery have received heated debate since at least the early 90s. Proponents suggest that the project will create a bypass for most of the East-West car traffic, which currently has to cross the congested city centre (given that Thessaloniki is especially linear as a city). Opponents cite the high construction cost, question the efficacy of such a solution and voice concerns about effects on the urban environment.
The New City Hall, Thessaloniki Tasos Mpiris. Under Construction
A new public space will link the two main blocks in Thessaloniki’s new city hall, currently under construction.
The new City Hall will be on the corner of Vassileos Georgiou and Tritis Septemvriou streets in a central location already replete with notable architecture, including the Archaeological Museum designed by Patroklos Karantinos and the Museum of Byzantine Culture designed by Kyriakos Krokos. Though the proximity of two buildings of such symbolic significance from different eras is appealing, it did raise concerns for the architects who, in any case, have avoided creating a pompous ensemble.
