The New Watergas, Technopolis’ tallest building invites you to enjoy the panoramic 360° view, from Acropolis and Lycabettus to the western suburbs and Egaleo, as well as Faliro and Kastella.

An interactive screen allows visitors to digitally explore a rare industrial monument, the historical landmarks which can be seen with a naked eye, as well as recommended walks in the city center.

The New Water Gas building was constructed in 1952 to complement the energy production and its operation ceased when the plant was shut down in 1984. The tallest spot was given the name “Tower” because of its height (approximately 30 meters). It is the only preserved water gas production building in Europe and is a rare sample of industrial heritage, having maintained almost its entire mechanical equipment in situ.
