Cyprus is going through a major construction boom phase, that first began in late 2013, when legislation was passed encouraging construction. Ever since, hundreds of new housing units and mushrooming businesses, are introduced to the Cypriot community each year.[1]

Currently, there are over 70 buildings that are proposed and/or under construction, that will stand taller than 50m upon completion, out of which the 32 are skyscrapers. Amongst the under construction projects, is the One high-rise residential building, where once completed, it will be Cyprus' tallest tower and Europe's tallest seafront residential building.[2] Under construction is also the 'City of Dreams Mediterranean' which is going to be Europe's largest casino resort.[3]

Many residents fear that Cyprus' high-rise future is going to disrupt the landscape and they are worried about the negative environmental consequences that the sprouting multi storey buildings will cause, that ultimately led to demonstrations opposing their construction.[4][5] Organisations are pointing out that the deep foundations of these high-rise structures, will interfere with the aquifer and have irreversible environmental consequences, though this was never officially proven.[6]
