Piraeus’s courts to come under one roof at former tobacco factory

A former tobacco plant on the eastern side of Piraeus is to become the new home of the port city’s disparate judicial services.

The emblematic 29,000-square meter Keranis factory is among the state-owned properties up for privatization and will be sold to private investors and leased back by the state for a period of 25 years for 30 million euros.

It was fully renovated in 2002 and has now been refitted to accommodate its new function.

It will house all eight of the city’s courts in the next few weeks.
