The Hellenic Parliament in the historic Bodossaki Foundation Building

It is with great pleasure that we announce the successful completion of the competitive tender process for selecting a tenant for the landmark Bodossaki Foundation Building, with the acceptance of the offer made by the Hellenic Parliament.

From 1 January 2024, the Bodossaki Mansion at the corner of Amalias Avenue and Souri St. in the Syntagma area will be leased by the Hellenic Parliament, in order to house in one place important services which currently occupy different locations in the centre of Athens. The income from the lease will go towards pursuing the charitable aims of the Bodossaki Foundation, to whom the property belongs.

In its 51 years of activity, Bodossaki Foundation has awarded more than 2,600 scholarships and made significant grants to promote education, improve health, protect the environment and strengthen Civil Society. Among its most notable grants have been the Bodossakeio General Hospital of Ptolemaida, the donation of the building where the General Archives of the State are housed and the construction of the Bodossaki Primary School of Athens College, while in 2022 alone more than 423,000 of our fellow citizens benefited from its grants and programmes.

The iconically symmetrical Bodossaki Mansion at the corner of 20 Amalias Avenue and 5 Souri St. is a historic Athenian building, designed by Andreas Ploumistos, a founding member of the Hellenic Architectural Society. Construction began in 1949 and was completed in 1958; during 2005-2006 it was completely renovated. It consists of a ground floor, 6 upper floors and 2 basements, and has a total area of 13,460 m2. The building has an unobstructed view of the National Gardens, as well as the main landmarks in the city centre: Mount Lycabettus, the Parliament building, the Panathenaic Stadium, the Pillars of Olympian Zeus and the Acropolis.
