Looks beautiful! Are there any good seaside resorts in Albania to go to? I think it must be still very comfortable to travel. Or is Albania already flooded by mass tourismß

Central Coast along the Golem - Durrės strip is filled with hundreds of hotels, restaurants and resorts. The larger and better part of our coast is completely untouched. So much so that our largest beach Borsh looks like this:

The gov has drafted a major masterplan for the development of coastal tourism which will allow for regulated and well planned resorts and other tourism developments to be constructed accordingly.
Club Med is building a resort in the luxurious beach of Kakome. The project was approved back in '05 but it met with some delays due to legal technicalities with land ownership. Construction of the project has resumed.

There are plans to develop 2 small cities from scratch along our northern coast by real estate giants TriGranit and Omnix Group.

The terminal extension phase of "Mother Teresa" International Airport got underway a few months ago.















This is the current terminal

It's 1/2 the size of the existing terminal. More expansion is planned down the road.

Looks like the old houses we call "city villas". Very nice!

Up until two years ago Zogu i Zi (Black Bird) ring road area was one of the most problematic areas of Tirana since it was a major entrance point to the city. The whole infrastructure of the area has been completely rebuilt

Dude, why are you reposting the same projects again? You're ruining the quality of the thread.

American Business Center progress...30 December 2008
[/QUOTE]







This property is situated on the hills situated at the feet of Dajti Mountain approximately 20 minutes from the centre of Tirana. The flats are located in one of the new building areas approved by the Mayor’s Office in 2005. Other similar builds surround this site. This area has proved to be quite popular amongst young professionals.



The Dajti Mountain funicular is only within walking distance. Some of the best traditional restaurants are located in the area. The National Film Centre and film studios are only minutes walk away. Chāteau Linza, which prises itself for one of the most breathtaking view of the city from its restaurant and which offers the usage of the open-air swimming pool in the summer, is also in the vicinity. Other suchlike facilities are also minute’s drive away.



Distances from facilities, airports towns
City centre 4km, Funicular to Dajti mountain ( Dajti express)300m, local pool 500m, Hospital 1km, Airport 20km or aprx 30min.

Rubix Kashar lies around 8km to the North West of central Tirana on the motorway to the main port of Durres. Kashar has been designated as a regeneration area and the purpose built offices and apartments in the area will be one of the focal points of industry and commerce in Tirana.
Rubix Kashar is one of the first developments in the Kashar area and is certainly the first development of this standard, boasting 164 one, two and three bed properties over seven floors. In the nearby area there is an Italian shopping mall, with boutique retail outlets, cafes and restaurants. The development also features a convenience shop and supermarket. There is a bus station 200m from the development and the area has excellent transport links to the international airport just 15 minutes away.







Also in the area are a cinema, bowling alley, sports and fitness facilities and stadium and parks to compliment the large number of new office facilities and provide a complete live/work environment.
With a new group of young, upwardly mobile professionals the midterm rental market is fantastic. One of the major sources of income for Albania over the past ten years has been remittances from nationals overseas, however as the Albanian economy improves many of those based overseas will look to purchase in Western style developments back home, increasing demand for developments such as Rubix Kashar and providing a great exit route.
