BAKU | Edelweiss Residence | 152m | 43 fl | App

Located at 16 Mehtizadeh Street close to the Sea Port. This three building complex comprises of a 43-storey Business Centre and two 36-storey residential buildings. In the grounds of the complex there will be a private kindergarten, shops, café, restaurants, beauty salons, sports/health centres, fitness-clubs, a bowling alley, computer rooms, underground parking, three leisure areas, an autonomous substation, boiler house, water reservoir and an emergency generator to provide the complex with electricity.








General Description

The EDELWEISS is a rare flower and a symbol of happiness and love, which intrepid men pick high up in the mountains and then solemnly present to their beloved. It grows on steep rocks, so not everyone is brave enough to collect it.
This name perfectly suits the mood of this new 5-star tower block, its high status and elite level. It is very nice to have a flat or an office with its own name. You do not have to spell out the address. All you have to do is say the EDELWEISS Residence. Moreover, the towers of the three blocks can be seen from some distance.

Location of the Complex

Its advantageous location at 16, Mehtizadeh Street is one of the pluses of the new complex. It is in the centre of the city but is, at the same time, a quiet and ecologically sound area, located right on the seashore. Fresh sea air, the quiet sounds of the waves, an outstanding view - isn't this the perfect place to live?

Architecture and planning


It is a modern building. In its architecture and colour solutions, the EDELWEISS Residence, located on the shores of the Caspian Sea, recalls the winds. And for that very reason it blends perfectly into the surrounding landscape.
The EDELWEISS Residence includes 3 buildings - a 43-storey Business Centre and 2 x 36-storey residential buildings.
Each of the buildings has its own portal entrance and a huge vestibule. There are only two flats on each floor: containing from 1 room up to 7. There are also large halls on each floor.

Modern standards, technology

At present, the EDELWEISS Residence is one of the most revolutionary and advanced projects, meeting the highest European standards. That is why it has been given 5 stars. Only the latest and most advanced construction materials are used in the complex and they fully accord to western standards. The basis of any house is the quality of its walls and foundations. They are guaranteed by the highly qualified employees of the INTEKS Company. The EDELWEISS Residence corresponds to all international standards. It is a seismically stable construction with hydro-isolation of the foundations and the entire complex; there is a drainage system, high-quality soundproofing between floors and apartments, a centralized system of hot and cold water and water cleansing, a water reservoir, electricity system and reserve generators, central heating and sewage system, ventilation system, fire alarms on every floor and an underground car park. All engineering systems in the complex are connected to the central dispatcher point and are under day-and-night observation by the appropriate personnel. Another innovation that will delight all residents, especially the ladies, is the built-in dust control. There is no place for allergies in such a residence! It should be noted that all the engineering and architectural work will be carried out under the strict control of European companies which will issue the relevant certificates upon completion of the work.

Territory and services

The EDELWEISS Residence is practically a city within a city.
There is EVERYTHING in the grounds of the complex: a private kindergarten, shops, café, restaurants, beauty salons, sports/health centres, fitness-clubs, a bowling alley, computer rooms for children, underground parking, three leisure areas for men, women and children, an autonomous substation, boiler house, water reservoir and there is even an emergency generator to provide the complex with electricity.
There is a private yard, where you can enjoy your spare time and it is absolutely off-limits to outsiders. It is on the 3rd floor of the residence, the 1st and 2nd floors are designated for the café, boutiques and gyms.

Security


The most important of all the facilities is the latest system of security and control. The video monitoring system will operate day-and-night and one can only enter the buildings, the underground garage and other areas strictly by access card.

Features

The interior of the building and its infrastructure matches the status of the EDELWEISS Residence. For the first time in Azerbaijan the Smart House system will be applied. Smart House means unlimited comfort. With a remote control you will be able to control the lighting at any point of your house and also switch on the climate control and video monitor. You can calmly let your child go walking alone, because the ubiquitous videophones will allow you to control his every step, regardless of which part of the residence or yard he is in. Moreover, you will be able to control your household items with a remote control from any part of the residence. The Smart House obeys totally the will of its “owner” and even anticipates his wishes. The apartments are fully decorated, the built in Italian kitchen is equipped with super-modern household appliances. The built in cabinets, the bathrooms equipped with the latest appliances, the residence service and all other services will be carried out to 5-star standard. Of course, there is cable television and high-sped Internet, an internal telephone line between residences, central heating and cooling systems, as well as a sewage-type garbage disposal unit in every flat. This is an absolutely innovatory system, by which the garbage from the residences is “flushed” by a strong jet of water.

A Star’s Life

An apartment or an office in the EDELWEISS Residence is indisputable proof of your high social status. It is practically a new 5-star lifestyle.
Spacious apartments, exquisite planning, unique apartments on the top floor, a view of the city's downtown on one side and on the sea on the other... This is beauty. It is tranquillity. It is health, for you and for your nearest and dearest.

Interesting project. So the big tower will be an office tower and the other two (in the first post mentioned for residential use) will be hotel towers? The later post don't seem to mention any residential space anymore...

The website now only mentions a Twin Tower Hotel project anymore: http://www.megaholding.az/static,22/lang,en/





It seems as if the original plans have been sacked....
