Initial plans are under way for a 1,000-acre, integrated destination resort on the Greek island of Crete. Finalized plans for the resort will be submitted to national Greek authorities for approval later this year. Eastern Crete Development Co., of Athens, has selected Boston-based Sasaki Associates Inc. as the master planner for the resort.

If approved, the resort will be located at the extreme eastern end of Crete and will include lodging, housing and resort attractions such as pools, tennis courts and golf courses. The resort will feature nearly 700 hotel rooms, as well as 425 condominiums and time-share units and an estimated 250 real estate villas and lots.
