Pylaia is a suburb towards the western edge of Thessaloniki. It encompasses the area highlighted in red below.
Pylaia is served by the M-5 and M-4 freeways as shown below. The M-5 will eventually become a complete ring road as development spreads around the bay while the M-4 is the smaller spur route. Major arterials include NW 68th Avenue and NW Oleson (2800 N). Not pictured below, but NW Avenue of the Roses (aka NW 82nd Avenue) passes through.
Parks and Developments
Pylaia currently has the largest open park in the area. It sits on NW 68th Avenue and NW Oleson Road and is pictured below. Despite being a suburb, there is a small cluster of high rises around the park. Developers found the park attractive in addition to the higher quality schools and strong local economy. Analysts predict this will be where Thessaloniki's "Silicon Valley" will grow. With 328,000 Sims living in Pylaia already, there is still plenty of room and developers are scrambling to plat the remaining open spaces.
