Work Progressing on Intempo Twin Tower in Benidorm
EL Pais reported that Benidorm, in Spain’s Alicante province, is now ready to unveil its latest attraction: the biggest residential skyscraper in Europe. The Intempo building is 198 meters high and home to 256 apartments. The two-towered structure topped with a cone is about to receive its certificate of completion. Construction workers from Dragados, the company hired to complete the project, are still directing traffic inside the building, where the final cleanup is continuing at the same time as potential buyers come to visit the show apartments.
The Intempo has 13,000 square meters of common areas, including an 800-square-meter pool on the ground floor. It takes around seven minutes to walk the 200 meters to the nearby Poniente beach from the building. On the 46th floor, there is another pool, and from the sun loungers you can enjoy a spectacular bird’s-eye view of the city. The 47th floor is the highest point, and is home to common areas. There will be a cocktail bar up there, along with four jacuzzis. The building managers estimate that around 800 people will live in the building in the high season, and that reservations will be needed to access this floor at peak times, such as Saint John’s eve June 23.
The most exclusive apartments are located on the 45th floor. The two residences there boast 300 square meters of space, and have been sold for more than EUR 2 million. The other options include apartments measuring 75 square meters, with two rooms and one bathroom, as well as 95-square-meter options with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an independent kitchen.
All of the apartments have a balcony that looks out to the sea, while many have a rear balcony too, with views of the mountains. The prices started from EUR 250,000, but right now the cheapest option is a 95-square-meter apartment selling for EUR 317,000.
