Apartments in Thrastarhöfdi Cape selling well
IPC is currently constructing an elegant multiple-family residential building located at Thrastarhöfdi Cape 4-6, in the western end of the Reykjavík suburb of Mosfellsbaer. The building was designed by the Arcus architecture firm with an eye to meeting the needs of families. The three-storey apartment complex, an ell-shaped building with two connected wings, contains 22 apartments and two entry halls. Underneath the building is a parking garage with space for 14 automobiles. The building is insulated and clad with tiles and hardwood, and the windows are constructed of wood and clad with aluminium. The design aims at keeping maintenance at a minimum. Each apartment has a separate entry, either from the balcony hallway or from the ground floor. Delivery of the first units is scheduled for July 2005.
According to IPC sales representative Margrét Sveinbjörnsdóttir, there has been considerable demand for the apartments. Almost half of the units sold during the first month they were on the market. “We expected the market to react well to these apartments, as they are extremely well designed and of excellent construction quality. The building contains three-, four-, and five-room units that are 88-105 m2, 114-122 m2, and 130 m2 in size respectively, which should meet the needs of most family sizes,” says Ms. Sveinbjörnsdóttir.
Large, open, and brightly lit space
The apartments are delivered fully finished but without floor coverings except for the bathrooms and laundry rooms, which have tile floors. The bathroom walls are tiled up to the height of the door, and the toilet is mounted on the wall. There are connections for television antenna and telephone in the living room and all of the bedrooms, and there is a separate laundry room in each apartment.
Purchasers may choose from among three types of wood finish for the top-quality veneered fixtures and doors. The foyer door has an inset glass panel. The apartments are equipped with appliances from AEG or another manufacturer of comparable quality and are finished with a brushed-steel texture. The fixtures are of especially good quality, but purchasers’ requests to design the interior of their apartment according to their own taste will be well received. It should be noted, however, that such requests must be made with adequate notice.
