This project is a joint venture of Balfin Group, the largest and most innovative investment group in Albania and one of the largest in the region, and Kastrati Group, the country’s largest fuel company and with investments in the fields of construction, insurance etc. DownTown Albania aims beyond of just developing an ambitious project, but also becoming an attraction for Tirana, as well as becoming a positive development for Albanian tourism. The project is conceived and designed with a unique architectural style as for this purpose one of the most innovative and best-of-breed studios in the world, Rotterdam-based MVRDV, has been acquired.
London-based ARUP UK company, one of the largest in the world, is the company that will develop the project as a guarantee for a construction according to the parameters not previously applied in Albania but also in the Balkan region in terms of construction, which assures safety, style, elegance and special lifestyle for all its residents.
DownTown Albania is the safest building in Albania in line with world projection and construction parameters, which includes a maximum earthquake protection system, a novelty in construction and first performed in this building. Meanwhile, the exterior facade of this building will have in its heart the map of Albania, which will add value not only to the look of the building but also to the entire surrounding area.
This building will be built as an important element of the city skyline, adding diversity and the impressive part in the urban context of Tirana. DownTown Albania consists of a total building area of about 1,528sqm, extending in a space of 3,812sqm.
