The first building will have 14 floors and 86 apartments. The second one will have eight storeys and 42 apartments with up to three rooms. Their size will be from 30 square metres up to 69 square metres. Most of the apartments have a terrace or balcony. The price starts at €70,220 which includes a cellar alcove.
