EIN News – World-Estate.com : Living in a skyscraper: exclusive or safe?
News.World-Estate.com : Human wish to go up to the sky has been known long ago. For some people who decide to “nest” in high, buildings respectfully called the skyscrapers help. However, is the human wish to go as high as possible is worth such marvelous investments?
One of the most impressive advantages of a flat in a skyscraper is the view which is (mostly) never obstructed. A house in the neighborhood or wildly running branches of a tree near the window is a common view of the 2nd – 3rd floor inhabitants. Such a view could never be compared to the panorama through the window of a flat in a 26th floor.
In living spaces the breathing air is cleaner as the pollution sinks stays around down floors. Together, less noise and wider horizons might be called a positive psycho emotional effect.
Going trough “World-Estate.com” database you could see that the higher the flat is, the sooner it is bought despite the fact that each square meter is much more expensive. Less noise, cleaner air and better psycho emotional atmosphere are the pluses worth each coin spent.
However, such houses are not suitable for everybody. There are quite many people who are afraid of taking the lift or simply to be high from the ground. Such persons would not agree to move in no matter how much many they had been paid.
Among the disadvantages of the skyscrapers are such problems as daily “trips” by lift or missing possibility to use balconies or open windows. There are special requirements for the mechanisms of windows in skyscrapers employed.
What is more, blocks – in contrast to houses – do not have separate yards for children to play safe and calm. People who are used to a private house and huge green yards might find it hard to be “closed” in an aquarium high up in the sky.
“World-Estate.com” experts suggests that considering the possibility of “nesting” in a skyscraper one must not forget safety and try to find out how much attendance project managers have paid at fire guard. The construction of the block should be fire resistant and have modern sprayer system.
Skyscrapers are easily distinguishable in the panorama of urban houses for their king sized exterior. Not only urban photographers but also terrorists pay attention at such oneness.
It has not been popular to live at, work in or even build skyscrapers after the September 11 attack. Day by day the memory of crashing New York skyscrapers has been gone and living “in the sky” is becoming “fashionable” again.
The world becomes more and more fragile and vulnerable after the globalization process has started, i.e. before terrorist attacks and natural disasters threatened only certain regions while now anybody might feel safe. Living 400 meters above the see level does not make feel more safe either.
Though living in a skyscraper is exclusive in quality and some are ready to pay a lot of money for this, other would not for the world go to live there. Everybody goes their respective ways.
