Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is expected to pass into the hands of the State on February 2017

Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is expected to pass into the hands of the State on February 2017, according to a timeframe presented on Monday during the 66th meeting of the Special Advisory Committee for the Center.

The consortium responsible for building the venue is currently restoring outstanding constructing issues. After construction is complete, the company will invite the state to certify the completion of the project and in December, a committee will be set to receive the company’s shares in order to conclude the transfer.

Once the project has been delivered, the National Library and Opera will be relocated in the new venue, a move that must be completed by March 2017.
