South Padre Island, Texas (PRWEB) June 30, 2009 -- AliceDonahue,com announces the new Kirana Pyramid Beach High-rise on South Padre Island.

South Padre is about to be taken to new heights, literally, with the new Kirana oceanfront condominiums, which will bring a new class of luxury - and will become the tallest building on the Island.

"Kirana is an Indian word meaning "ray of light" and the new design shines bright for the lone star state with a pyramid style high-rise like nothing the Texas coast has ever seen. This project rivals anything in the world," says Alice Donahue, broker for AliceDonahue.com.

"We are excited to have this class of product come to the Island and the pre-construction prices put this product on price par with our 1980's built beach condos, but this high-rise design towers above anything on our Island," says Alice Donahue.

These residences rewrite the rules of style, form and function. Kirana offers a refined collection of beautifully appointed 3, 4 and 5 bedroom luxury condominium residences and penthouse units.

"South Padre Island is outperforming nearly ever market in the country right now," says Alice Donahue, "and it's a great time to buy here, with our strong median price and record sales levels for 2009."

This is the ugliest side of the building but probably contains the elevator shaft. Other than that nothing special about this building except for the height and looks like it could be plopped down on any coastal city in Florida.

Speaking that a tennis court is about 36 feet wide, and 78 feet long, there is no way that tennis court fits over a 2 car wide, 6 car long area. Maybe a badminton court. Load of shit is the first thing I notice. This building is awful looking.

I never really understood making the elevator shaft an exterior fixture, assuming that's what's going on here.
That, my friend, is exactly whats going on here. I really don't understand it either, However, I do know that it gives more floor area for condos and less need for elevator lobbies. What I don't understand is why you would not try to hide it at least, you know? Put some glass on it, make it a glass elevator, or at least TRY to make it an architectural feature!

At least they put it on what is clearly the back side..
I don't know that I really call it the backside, most likely as many people will see this building from the road as they will from the beach. So in theory is there really a backside to this building? You enter from the ugly side via the road, so I would call it the front.
