The city of Heraklion even though it has always had a coastal front covering several kilometers, it had faced away from it. For many years it was one of the few, if not the only one, coastal cities of Greece which had not included at all their coastal front zones in their urban fabric. The preparations for the Olympic Games brought big changes for Heraklion, the city began to change with a significant part of the coastal front being part of the everyday life of the citizens and thus the city, gradually, faced the sea. Even though those changes were significant, they were only a part of the total length of the coastal front. Some parts of the city still have unused parts of their coastal zones but the need for exploiting those areas by the residents is strong. Such an area is Nea Alikarnassos, the eastern border of the municipality of Heraklion, the airport area as it is widely known. This project studies the space occupied by the facilities of the International Airport of Heraklion to the coastal front of Nea Alikarnassos. Taking into account the future relocation of the International Airport, the project is studying a case of redevelopment for the entire area with the intent of making the city interact with this, formerly out of limits, space. In response to the installation of a Formula 1 circuit in the area, different infrastructures are being placed in the site that will satisfy motor racing tourists. The interaction of the track with the city gives the opportunity for a new configuration of the coastal front which can be used on a daily basis by all age groups of the city residents and the tourists.
