In 1970 the factory was suspended and in 1974 the site was transferred to the State Real Estate Company, the equipment was donated to the Greek army, the facilities were demolished (except for one chimney and a water collector) and a total of 40,000 trees were planted.
The cornerstone was laid, symbolically, on November 14, 1976, under Prime Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis, who planted a plane tree. Mainly educational and sports facilities were built, as well as the open-air theater "Alexis Minotis", the inauguration of which was carried out by the honorary citizen of Egaleo Manos Hadjidakis.
