Glitz and glamour, wealth and luxury, sun, sand and sea: Monaco has long been a popular destination for affluent travelers, and therefore a magnet for the most discerning international property tycoons.
Home to towering casinos and yacht-filled marinas, this tiny but picturesque principality is squeezed into just under 500 acres; its sleek, modern buildings and traditional Mediterranean villas rest at the foot of a rugged mountain surrounded by glistening sea views, making it a prime location on the Riviera. An advantageous tax regime has made the country a tax haven for the wealthy, which, along with its lavish lifestyle amenities and sky-high security, has led to its strong standing in the global property market.
With the principality's newest and tallest residential skyscraper currently being completed, Monaco could next year be home to the world’s most expensive property per square foot.
Monaco’s Newest Jewel
Rising above the azure waters of the Mediterranean, Tour Odeon (Odeon Tower) is a home between the sea and the sky. The soaring 557-foot double residential tower overlooks the stunning coast, Larvotto Beach and the Ligharian Sea. It will come onto the market next year and its real estate representatives say it will set a new standard for luxury living on an international scale.
Less than 20 miles from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport, the sculpted 49-story double tower is Monaco’s newest and tallest residential skyscraper. Tour Odeon was the grand vision of Monaco developer Groupe Marzocco and well-known Monégasque architect Alexandre Giraldi, with the backing of the principality’s government. Groupe Marzocco’s managing director Daniel Marzocco is understandably passionate about the groundbreaking development. “There is nothing else like Tour Odeon in Monaco – its stunning architecture, exquisite design, unrivaled panoramic views and sheer scale make it a truly unique and unparalleled project,” he says. “We have seen interest from all four corners of the globe and sales have been outstanding.”
