Miramar looks good, interesting real estate. I wonder where in the city it's located, I'll have to observe the city with GoogleEarth if I want to know it's exact location. Good pics Matt.

Popa1980, maybe that´s due to the configuration of your computer, I don´t know!

More Luanda photos



that is what the blogger writes about the construction in Luanda

Quote:
Sinais dos tempos espelhados em todo o tipo de construções que ocorrem, um pouco por toda a parte, na cidade de Luanda. Em primeiro plano a nova sede da Sonangol com o que parece ser um heliporto no topo e, mais ao longe, um novo edifício em frente ao Jornal de Angola e da representação da União Europeia, privado, destinado a comércio, escritórios e habitação (de luxo, mercado em forte expansão). É interessante este fenómeno de novas construções, recuperação de edifícios antigos e modificações nalguns já existentes evidenciando a pujança económica que se vive no país.
All 2007 Pics

here one can see other sides of Luanda not seen before

new skyscrapers, some of which we haven´t seen so far











Read what the blogger has to say about Luanda


Quote:
Estou percebendo com o tempo que a Angola é um país com lugares bonitos e um país que é rico em recursos minerais, com um povo muito acolhedor e simpático. Isso aqui é muito parecido com o Brasil resguardado algumas restrições. Entretanto, há muita coisa a fazer. O país precisa investir pesado em infra-estrutura, como a construção de estradas, pontes, rede de abastecimento de água e luz, geração de energia, sistema de tratamento de esgoto, redes de água pluvial e telecomunicações. O país necessita de novos comércios e de novas industrias, para atender a demanda de consumo do povo Angolano que crescem a cada dia. Segundo informações a Angola esta crescendo cerca de 25 a 30% do PIB, enquanto o Brasil não consegue crescer 3,5 a 4%. Estou encaminhando abaixo algumas fotos de obras que estão sendo construídas aqui em Angola.

Apesar de todas as dificuldades é um país muito seguro. Hoje precisei trocar 100 dolares. Então soube que havia uma senhora, aqui perto do apartamento, que trocava dólares por kuanza (já explico melhor). A senhora, que estava sentada em uma caldeira de sol no meio da calçada, estava com aproximadamente 10 maços de 100 dolares, ou seja, com 1000 dolares no meio da rua lotada de gente. No Brasil isso seria simplesmente impossível de ocorrer, ou você imagina a “mulher da cobra” no centro de Curitiba, com aproximadamente 2000 reais na mão e ainda oferecendo em voz alta?! O país, embora tenha grandes problemas, é um país seguro e mutio diferente das grandes cidades brasileiras como Rio de Janeiro e São Paulo.

This looks like an improvised film set ....

I've said it before, in 10 years time Sonangol will be one of the biggest companies in Africa (if it already isnt).

the fence at the botton marks the place of a new 26 floor tower (Hotel President second tower perhaps) going up near Total and Sonamet buildings; just a step from the Luanda bay

The fence close to the main road marks the place of a new hotel building going up (possible sheraton). On the back the ESCOM Tower (will have 26 floor, about 150m high)

Sonangol E.P Tower (future headquarter) from the way coming of Josina Machel Hospital. The little building with green glass windows is the BESA headquarters building.

Hammelkar, Thank you soooooooo much for having us share these pics! Great great stuff happening in Luanda!


I love cranes so much and even the more when they are conquering Africa´s skies!

Three Question that keep on occupying me

What about Luanda Bay reclamation area project, is it gaining shape (slowly)?

And what about Luanda Sul?

Luanda World Trade Centre are we talking of this two tower project that has been proposed in at the end of 2005?





I have read that one can see the entire project when completed on an exhibition in a hotel of Luanda whose name I have forgotten!

PS: We need to put those pics on the thread which I have created on General Photos!
