Can I buy into a development that isn’t finished yet for my Golden Visa application?

I heard about a project along the Greek coastline that looks amazing. It is within the minimum investment amount but hasn’t been built yet. The developer is still working on getting the proper permissions before he can start construction. Can I use this for my Golden Visa application?
