Turkish Aral Group Company Offers New Residential Complex Roseville in Baku

Aral Group, the largest Turkish building company, has, for the first time, renovated and furnished apartments in the residential complex Roseville in Baku, Tamer Peshtak, Director General of the company, stated in the presentation ceremony of the project on 29 April.

“The construction of the complex commenced in May 2007 and is expected to be completed by the second half of 2009,” Peshtak stated.

Roseville consists of 272 apartments measuring 90 to 454 sq.m. each. The apartments will be furnished with European, German and Turkish furniture. Roseville has 18 buildings. The area of the leisure complex (fitness club, sauna, body massage rooms, rest rooms and children rooms) is 1,066 sq. m. and the area of the swimming pool is 320 sq.m.

Peshtek stated that the apartments would be sold on credit conditions on a 1 to 5 year term through the local banks. From 30 April the company will be prepared to carry out the sale of the apartments

The average cost for an apartment in the complex is from $450,000 to $500,000.

Peshtek stated that materials meeting European standards were used in the construction of the complex. Azerbaijani and Turkish builders have been engaged in the construction of the complex.

“The residential complex is durable against earthquakes measuring 9 points on the Richter scale,” Peshtak stated.

FULL MOON RISING and CRESCENT TOWER - APPROVED

Heerim Architects has attempted to reinvent the skyscraper beyond the traditional with two lunar inspired projects in the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Korean firm has dreamed up Full Moon Bay and Caspian Plus that includes Crescent Place on neighbouring peninsulas in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku that look on to the Caspian Sea - the two projects on opposite extremes of the same bay acting as gateway markers.

Hotel Full Moon is essentially a disc with rounded edges and a hole in one of the top corners that appears radically different to the view depending on the angle it is seen from. The frontage thanks to the bulging centre makes it appear more like a glass death star whilst the side profile is more than a little gherkinesque.

Changing appearance depending on the view is reinforced by the cladding treatment the architect has selected. The front will have a glass diagrid whilst the back will be covered with hexagonal honeycombs.

This main building will be a 35 storey luxury hotel with 104,182 square metres of space for only 382 rooms, a relatively small amount of rooms given the sheer size of the internal space on offer. It will reach a maximum height of 158.68 metres.

The hotel is linked via a zoomorphically shaped podium that snakes curvaceously around the boundaries of the site to two residential apartment blocks entitled Palace of Wind 1 and 2.

Acting as the counterpoint to Hotel Full Moon is Hotel Crescent, part of the Caspian Plus redevelopment that stands as a curving arch similar to a crescent moon. The arch-like nature of the building is revealed by the fact that the structure isn't a pure crescent on its inside relying on more regularly shaped columns to help provide it with support.

At 32 floors tall it will also be a luxury hotel, this time with 221 rooms. There will also be 128 serviced apartments in the building. Floor space will 128,140 square metres.

Behind it will stand a further four tall buildings, three of which will be residential with the tallest of the quartet being a 43 floor office building standing 203 metres tall.

Heerim Architects have not long been established in Azerbaijan. They only opened their office in the country in July 2007 and yet have already secured these two major projects that face transforming the capital of one of the world's fastest growing economies.

Not to be a pain, but that last picture: the background is Boston. While the project looks like the others in Baku, which are amazing and I congratulate you for them, I feel that that last one may not be for Baku... but for Boston. Look at the buildings and the hill. It's Boston!

I am not sure. It is right opposite to the Caspian Plaza; on the contrary, "Izmir" restaurant is in Izmir park, opposite to Hyatt Regency. Besides, i have seen a deep hole for the foundation of that building. Construction works are going on.
