Looks like the underground floors are in the final phase, and the floors will soon begin to rise above ground level




(watch especially the end of the video)

brilliant building but I don't like the lowrise in front. Looks a bit dubaish with the small building.

That's what I thought, too. But the tower looks damn fine.

Interior City View of TID Tower


Tirana, ALB

The tower is part of the ambitious new master plan for the city, which converges around ten towers. The main program of the tower consists of office and housing program. Shopping and restaurant facilities are located in the base and at the top of the building.

Our first investigation was to resolve the dilemma of elegance – a clear ambition stated in the master plan - and square meters. We propose a volume based on a super ellipse: starting as an ellipse and ending as a rectangle. The subtle transition between these two basic shapes makes a tower which fully captures the Mediterranean light of Tirana, and creates ever changing shadows.

The main views towards the site from the boulevards entering the centre are diagonal, showing the tower in its most dramatic angle. From the top corners the facade slopes 6 m inwards, resulting in a gentle cantilever. Seen from Kavajes Boulevard, the grand shape of the tower gracefully complements the urban ensemble consisting of the mosque, the clock tower and the cultural palace.

Sited almost on top of the Suleman Pasha Tomb - in remembrance of Tirana’s founding father- the tower potentially obliterates the history of the city it wants to complement. This problematic situation is turned into an opportunity: a circular, three-dimensional cut out of the base of the tower creates an almost ethereal aura for the tomb. The unusual combination of the two structures results in an exciting urban mo(nu)ment.

The specific position of the building in the cityscape demands for a facade that works on two scales: on an urban scale and on a private scale. The faēade is developed as one system, emphasizing the tower as a whole, while allowing for diversity and variation when zooming in. It becomes a mediator between the public and private. The facade generates diverse conditions in response to the inside and outside environment.

To develop a high-rise for Tirana is to deal with the reality of Tirana. Merely importing models that already have been established will not do the trick. The opportunity that the specific reality of Tirana offers is to construct a building that would be unimaginable in Europe. To achieve this goal, means setting up a process. The final building will never look like we’ve initially envisaged it: it will absorb all influences and change accordingly, to become in the end truly site-specific.

Do you mean this part in the front of the building?

If thats the case, it has been made to integrate the tower itself - with that little white round thing, which is a 500 year old (or something) monument.. It has been made to create the idea of "public space", a sort of park - although at the same time an integrated part of the tower...

Excellent design and shape. One of the most notable new highrise proposals for Europe.

its actually under construction


Here is the most recent pic, taken a couple of days ago by "Andrew" from www.urbania21.com :





Seems like the 3 underground floors and the foundation works are in the final stage.. The other 24 floors will most likely rise above ground level much faster

This is one of the 10 towers projected for Tirana's Central Axis. Two other towers which have been approved since 2005 are expected to start construction in the not so distant future. And the remaining 7 will be selected through a chain of international competitions organized by City Hall.
A major international competition for the Rehabiliation of the Main Square will take place 9 days from now. I'll make sure to post it in this part of the forum when they announce the winning design.

What happened to the plan from the French firm "Architecture Studio" which to the best of my knowledge provided for the construction of numerous towers around Skanderberg square? Is it realized or are they going for a new plan now?

It is being implemented.
The rehabilitation of the Main Square is part of the french studio's masterplan of reshaping and giving a new dimension to the central axis of the city.
