Investing in a home near the WTC Gibraltar
The location is one of the most important factors to consider when a person is looking for a new home. While it is possible to come across a property that has all the space and amenities you need, if it is located in a less desirable neighbourhood, or is too far away from the places you regularly frequent, it may not really fit what you may need.
Investing in a home that is located near a business centre can be a great idea, whether it is for renting or living in.
Business centres are characterized by their strategic location and by having mixed-use developments, which are properties that have shopping malls, offices, apartments, etc.
WTC Gibraltar, a spectacular office building
In Gibraltar, a few meters from the airport, and overlooking its runway, stands an office complex where glass and aluminium are the absolute protagonists. This is the World Trade Centre, a structure whose facades have a unique personality.
An office building
The World Trade Centre has a staggered height – eight floors at its highest point and six at its lowest – a surface area of 15,500 m2 of high-quality office space, and around 100 parking spaces. The offices are occupied by multinational firms, medium-sized firms, and British government officials, all of which are provided with optimal and ample space.
The building’s facilities are complemented by a large reception area with digital multimedia screens, a cafeteria, a healthy restaurant, a beauty salon, and a print shop on the ground and mezzanine floors.
The facades of the World Trade Centre allow the building to integrate, play and converge with the surrounding environment. The aesthetics of these surfaces make them dynamic as it reflects the building’s surroundings, changing their appearance depending on the angle, the weather, and the time of day. Thus, this is a building that changes to the rhythm and hand in hand with the course of the day, absolutely symbiotic and chameleonic.
A sustainable building
In addition to the architecture, the project also aims to stand out for its commitment to environmental sustainability, with reduced energy consumption. Its glass and aluminium facades, while providing natural daylight, offer efficient protection against adverse or extreme weather, and ensure energy efficiency; these are sustainable and low-maintenance external finishes. In the future, we must also take into account the possibilities of recyclability and reusability that aluminium provides.
The lobby is a large space, where the goal was to create a space that would be a sort of meeting centre, closer than a reception, a space that would facilitate informal meetings and interpersonal networking and thus create synergies between the various companies that occupy the World Trade Centre.
The entry of natural light is one of the basic concepts in the development of this project. To achieve this, it was necessary to introduce an open courtyard in the centre of the plan to solve the problem of lighting in the most central areas of the building. An interior courtyard that, in addition to the entry of daylight, favours natural ventilation to the offices.
In addition, the courtyard contains a fountain surrounded by an oasis of plants and flowers, creating a green space and a natural environment for the enjoyment of the building’s users.
Advantages of living in an apartment near your workplace
One of the biggest problems of living in crowded cities has been the commute from one place to another. It is because of this that people today seek to reduce or shorten the commute between home and work.
Therefore we know that there are advantages in which living and working in a short distance is very useful, for example:
- You can commute in less time and enjoy more time with your family.
- You can set aside time to use for activities such as exercising or attending courses or classes.
- You reduce the use of your car, which means saving money on gas and polluting the environment less.
- Walking from home to work reduces your sedentary lifestyle.
Numerous studies have found that employee stress and worry increase as travel time to the office increases.
Those with a longer commute, moreover, are more likely to suffer from chronic neck or back pain, obesity, and high cholesterol.
For these and other reasons, buying an apartment near the Gibraltar World Trade Center is an option that can contribute to improving your quality of life.
