ASTANA | Projects & Construction



Astana (Kazakh: Астана; former names include Akmola, Akmolinsk, Tselinograd, and Aqmola), is the capital and second largest city (behind Almaty) of Kazakhstan, with an officially estimated population (1 Dec. 2007) of 600,200 [2] .



In 1994, the city was designated as the future capital of the newly-independent country, and again renamed to the present "Astana" after the capital was officially moved from Almaty in 1997. Despite the isolated location of the new capital in the centre of the Kazakh Steppe and the forbidding climate in winter, Kazakhstan simply needed a more central location than its former location of Almaty.

It is situated in north central Kazakhstan, in the Akmola region, in the Esil (Ishim) river fluvial plain

Climate - sharply-continental: moderately hot summer and long hard winter

Geographical coordinates – latitude: 51 degrees 10 minutes North and Longitude: 71 degrees 30 minutes East

Local time - Astana is GMT +06.00

The city area is 710. 2 sq. km

Estimated population is 602 500

Representatives of more than 100 nationalities live in Astana.

Astana World Stadium

About the project

The stadium is to be used as a multifunctional entertainment complex for different sports and gathering purposes, but it is mainly programmed as a soccer field that fits the FIFA and UEFA criteria. Align with the elliptical outer form; the circulation line creates dynamic and peaceful areas. The structural elements mutually support each other and converge into a grid-like formation, in which façades, stairs and roof are integrated. The steel structure, transparent glass and the partially used galvanized sandwich panels on the facade create a strong and clear expression. The polycarbonate skylight surrounding the roof illuminates the facade and the main circulation zone. A two-tiered solution, with exclusive areas, is preferred; lower stands with 16,000 seating capacity situated at all four sides and the upper stands with 14,000 seating capacity are placed only on the east and west sides. The stadium, seating up to 30,000, has 24 portals for the entrance and exit of the spectators. The design introduces innovative solutions adopting high technology principles for operational management and dealing especially with harsh climatic conditions of the geography. The closed arena is heated and air-conditioned. The operable roof is an integral part of the structure. The main bearing construction being steel, the sliding roof shifts on the east-west direction. Polycarbonate elements cover the moving part of the roof for benefiting natural light; also grant impact resistance, sound absorption and natural ventilation. Apart from its functional features, the Astana Stadium is a symbolic building that reflects the modern and contemporary aspects of the new capital. The stadium constitutes a charming urban landscape and becomes a new scene in Astana tallying with the synergy of sports, games, hospitality, nature and contemporary architecture.

Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences

Architect: Robert Stern www.ramsa.com
Developer: Capital Partners





60-storey Ritz-Carlton hotel and residences—to be the tallest building in Astana—is sited just off the mall. A grand glazed winter court will be a meeting place visiting dignitaries and diplomats sheltered from the city's climatic extremes. The 114-key hotel will provide banquet rooms and a state ballroom; above, 210 residences include numerous penthouses. The building sets back to reflect the program, rising to a glazed crown that will sparkle in the sunlight by day and glow like a lantern by night.
