Description of the project: A rare opportunity to acquire a prime building plot with a project with a unique location and execution plan in Bansko - Bulgaria’s biggest and most developed ski resort. It is set in close proximity to the Gondola – the main lift in the resort and second line from the main street of the resort – Pirin Str. It is opposite the emblematic 5-star Kempinski Grand Arena hotel. This plot was bought some years ago and its status was later changed for the construction of a luxury apartment building of the highest quality.
All the necessary architectural and other technical designs have been drafted and have been approved by the Chief Architect of Bansko and there is a valid issued building permit for the plot. This means that the construction of the building can start immediately.
The area of the plot is 944 sq.m. The total built-up area of the building is 2,493 sq.m. and it is designed with a total of 7 levels. The building will have 32 apartments – mainly one-bedroom as well as a few two-bedroom ones – whose areas vary between 42 and 84 sq.m. The aim is to achieve the highest possible standard by using the best construction materials and by adding many extra facilities:
• Reception area • Lobby area • Office • Restaurant • Conference hall • Heated swimming pool with changing rooms • Spa center with sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, massage rooms, solarium, gym and changing rooms • All apartments will have fireplaces The building will have a lift and the heating will be local using pellets or gas.
The project was designed by one of the most successful architectural companies in Bulgaria. The building is modern, in the Alpine style. The materials that will be use for the finishing works will be of the highest quality and with a contemporary design.
All these extras and the high-quality characteristics combined with the prime location in this most sought-after ski resort make Chateau Blanc one of the most desirable complexes in Bansko.
What is important is the fact that this is the last remaining undeveloped plot in close proximity to the Gondola. The buildings around it were built about 5 years ago and do not have the advantage of a modern style, contemporary materials and extras or the most efficient technical solutions (for example the heating system). This allows the investor to build a complex that will stand out among the best developments in the ski resort of Bansko.
Our company and the other companies from our corporate group can offer a full range of services and solutions for the construction of the complex as well as project management, investor control, document flow and administration services. We can also offer the units in the building for sale on completion. After Chateau Blanc is finished we can provide quality property management and maintenance services as an apartment hotel. In fact BULGARIAN PROPERTIES can provide the investor with everything necessary for the successful realization of the building.
Note: As well as the asking price the seller also wants to receive two one-bedroom apartments in the finished building.
