Located a little more than a two-hour flight away from each other, Istanbul and Alexandria have many things in common: rich history, sun, sea and the magic of the East. Yet, the cities are completely different! Likewise, the two new houses Istanbul and Alexandria in the Minsk World complex will be different yet similar. The sales of apartments in these two houses were launched a week apart.
The Istanbul house is located in the Southern Europe quarter. This is the northern part of the Minsk World complex, along Aerodromnaya Street, the development site behind the Champions quarter. Eight houses will be built here.
In fact, these are the neighboring quarters which are divided by the building of the former airport. They have a lot of things in common!
For example, their residents will easily reach any part in the city. After all, two new metro stations will be located within a walking distance of both the Africa and Southern Europe quarters. There will be stops of ground transport, the routes of which will be conveniently integrated into the infrastructure of the residential complex.
Both quarters are green and bright, with landscape design, trees and shrubs. Each house has children's play towns, recreation areas, and sports grounds.
Well-developed social infrastructure is an important feature of the entire Minsk World complex. The Africa and Southern Europe quarters will boast modern kindergartens with swimming pools. There will also be stores, pharmacies, facilities for sports and recreational activities and cafes. Schools are in the neighboring quarters.
The courtyards in the Minsk World complex will be a car-free space. Car owners and visitors can take advantage of outdoor parking lots along the perimeter of the quarters and also of multi-level car parks. By the way, the first car park in the Minsk World complex opened in autumn. This nine-level park has room for up to 800 cars.
The facade of the Istanbul house will be decorated by glass in the colors of sea and sky, while the Alexandria house with have panoramic glazing in the colors of Egyptian sand. The facade of this building will be decorated by fixtures resembling rays of a lighthouse, the symbol of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
The Istanbul house will have 25 floors and 216 apartments with an area ranging from 43 to 72 square meters. However, over the week since the start of the sale, many apartments were sold, though buyers still have plenty of choice!
The market launch of the Istanbul house aroused a great interest – half of all apartments have already been purchased or booked by now. This house features so-called European-style one-bedroom apartments as big as 43-48 square meters designed to a base build concept. There can be up to six layouts here, from a spacious studio to a standard apartment with a separate kitchen and a bedroom. As of today, this is the only house that offers this kind of layout, specialists of the sales office say.
The 24-storey Alexandria house has 281 apartments of 30-74 m2.
“Most apartments in the Alexandria house face a park area. All apartments have panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, they can be opened; there is also access to a small French balcony. Apartments on the 24th floor have ceilings that are three meters high. From here you can have a great view of the entire Minsk World complex,” managers of the sales office say.
Commercial premises will be located on the ground floor of the Istanbul house. Its residents will certainly appreciate an opportunity to drop by a store or a cafe located right in the building where they live. This might also encourage them to consider launching their own business.
The ground floor of the Alexandria house will feature apartments with a separate entryway and a courtyard, a private terrace protected from sun and rain by a glass sun breaker and an own fence. It will feel almost like a townhouse!
The Istanbul house will feature panoramic glazing and glazed loggias. The Alexandria house will feature tinted glazed loggias and, starting from the 5th floor, floor-to-ceiling windows with children's security locks.
The houses differ, but they also have common features which can be considered a trademark of the Minsk World complex.
The houses will have entryways on both sides. This means that when parking a car you can enter the lobby from the street. Taking a child for a walk you can use the entryway on the opposite side, right into a quiet green yard. You don't have to go around the house!
The semi-basement and the entrance group will be decorated with high-quality ceramic granite. It is both a beautiful and durable solution, close to natural stone in terms of texture and properties.
Spacious and bright designer lobbieswith panoramic glazing and themed decorations are a far cry from a traditional house entrance. Naturally, there will also be a front desk and a courier waiting area, a restroom with a baby changing station. There will also be storage facilities for prams and bikes in the Istanbul house and granite-decorated elevator doors in the Alexandria house.
Both the houses will havethree quiet and high-speed elevators from the world's leading producer OTIS.
Apartments in the two houses will boast a base build concept. Owners will have an opportunity to design the layout of their apartment, the size and location of their rooms and doorways the way they want. Walls should not stand in the way of the dream of one's own ideal apartment!
However, the most important thing that should be kept in mind when choosing an apartment in the Minsk World complex is the advantages of the whole project. No matter how the houses differ and what they have in common, residents of both Alexandria and Istanbul will enjoy every day of living in a modern and convenient complex that is built in accordance with the “city within a city” principle!
Minsk World received the EuropaProperty award as Europe's largest multifunctional complex. The complex is located close to the city center and has everything necessary for a comfortable life.
It was mentioned multiple times that either a school or a kindergarten will be built in every quarter. The complex will also feature polyclinics for children and adults, shops and gyms, cafes and restaurants.
A new huge shopping and entertainment center Mara Mall with its futuristic design, shops, a food court, and amusements to suit every taste will become a favorite place to shop and relax for many residents of the capital.
The international financial center Minsk World will become the business heart of the complex. Minsk World is designed to attract investments from all over the globe and foster the creation of thousands of jobs in Belarus. It is quite possible that in the future many residents of the Minsk World complex will be able to go to their prestigious jobs on foot.
A nice addition to all the benefits an apartment in the Minsk World complex comes with is a video review on the real estate developer's website, which will help buyers watch the construction of every house virtually in real time!
