The former textile factory in "Garibaldi Square" will undergo a major reconstruction process. The urban intervention plan covers an area of 5500 m2 in which green and pedestrian spaces will be developed to regenerate the area into a lively, habitable community. The first step will be the renovation of the facades of the buildings complex in their original architectural ensemble.

City Hall is in the negotiaton phase with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development to acquire a €25 million loan to finance the first segment of Tirana's Outer Ring Road. The project includes the construction of around 3 km of a 4 to 6-lane urban distributor in a developed urban corridor west of the city centre and a 4-lane section of approximately 5 km on the southern periphery of the city limits. The new road will primarily serve an unmet travel demand, namely by acting as a key road link between the established north-western side of the city centre and the growing southern residential districts and into the community of Sauk.

Urban Intervention for "Wilson Square"



The project aims to improve the functionality of the square which is a major traffic point in the city. It includes the reconstruction of a shallow 1 meter sidewalk, which will enable a more secure flow of vehicles. The interior surface of the circle will have a hump of grass, dressed with decorative shrub.

Revival of public spaces is a process impartible, not only as the priority of the Municipality of Tirana, but also as an incentive or desire to contribute to community and private enterprises.

absolutely fantastic job 7t !

What you see here guys is the Tirana of 2020 ! Quite a few of these projects have already started ! More to be built on the following years !

Of course Tirana is not New york or smthng , it has its bad side too ! But things are changing very quickly !

The only bad thing is that this last year nothing has been done about huge infrastructure plans , like roads etc !

I think that they are keeping the funds to invest em near the elections ! thats a guess though ! We will see

Tirana Business Park first phase construction expected to start late 2010

“We’re continuing a tradition that has gone beyond a decade”, said Michael Ulmer-Lindner, the General Manager of Lindner Development remarked about their new development, Tirana Business Park.

Tirana Business Park will be the single largest commercial development project ever done in Albania since the fall of communism – as well as the first business park in Albania. The project is located on a parcel land of 210,000 square meters, and the projected built-up area is expected to exceed well in excess of 200,000 square meters of office, warehouse and small-scale light industrial buildings.

Tirana Business Park will be situated near the Mother Teresa International Airport in Preza Commune, Tiranë. The project will be constructed in two phases with the first phase expected to start in October/November 2010.

Colliers International signed an important long term investor representation agreement with a German development company based outside of Munich, Lindner Development.

Colliers will be engaged in providing exclusive leasing/selling services of the commercial space, development advisory, marketing, legal and property management advisory services.

“As Colliers we are more than excited to bring the Lindner expertise to the Albanian market. We believe that through our joint cooperation we will be able to change and further improve construction standards in Albania”, added Stela Dhami, the General Manager of Colliers in Albania.

Lindner Development is a European market leader with over 40 years of experience in interior fit-out and façade construction. lliers International is the third largest commercial real estate services company in the world with 15,000 professionals operating out of more than 480 offices in 61 countries.

Tirana Rocks Residential Towers

As part of the Tirana Rocks masterplan, Aedas has recently designed two residential towers designed to maximise views of the surrounding area and to provide an interactive and lively retail space.

The design concept emerged from a strong desire to acknowledge the accepted ‘Tirana Rocks’ masterplan which creates a new dense urban neighborhood with a park and public facilities at the shore of Tirana Lake, in the south of the Albanian capital. The design appreciates the contextual limits, and provides a sustainable, iconic vision of the future of Tirana, and Albania.

The buildings have been designed to echo the richness of the area and articulate a ‘rock’ aesthetic which relates to the existing masterplan. Through a massing model exercise from the parameters set out within the masterplan, the process developed forms, which combined with contextual generators of patterns, rocks, and mountains, created the fundamental basis of the concept.

When complete, the exterior ‘rock’ theme will utilise local stone found within this region. Its design provides interest by creating forms, colour and texture, yet adds soften edges within the fractured landscape. The façades will fold back, providing stunning views and daylight within the property.

Aedas’ design provides two unique buildings which are appropriate to location, environment, culture and function, achieving the objectives of the brief, while reflecting the client’s aspirations for an iconic development for Tirana.

Eyes of Tirana project construction to start soon



And another Tower projects

Tirana Station Towers | Albania

qw

In collaboration with the Architekten Cie BaksvanWengerden Architecten designed two towers for

the new station area in Tirana, Albania. Both towers contain a maximum mix of offices, hotel rooms

and apartments.
sdf

Tower A has a vertical mix of programme supplemented by vertical voids to optimise the penetration

of natural daylight and generate views over the city and the adjoining mountains. In tower B the

programme is horizontally mixed with open floors to accommodate public facilities – restaurant,

lounge bar and health club. Both towers have retail and catering programme at ground floor level.

In addition to this tower B has a underground passageway to a music pavilion in the park.

wd

The intensified multi-use character of these towers underscores the ambition to invigorate city life

in this part of Tirana. The two towers are different but unmistakably related.

City Hall unveiled new ecological buses earlier today that will help in improving the quality of air in city streets. Buses are brand new, 2010 production. Fully air-conditioned, they release steam instead of toxic smog.
