Lofts will range in size from 80m2 to 150m2 with a beautiful terrace garden for each, and will be characterized by an open living space with a high ceiling of 4.4 meters, open floor plans with minimal use of walls, large windows enhancing natural light in the space, some exposed structural elements (piping/ductwork) and a mix of traditional materials including concrete, metal and wood. Each loft will benefit from a mezzanine level (around 20% of its size) that constitutes an open space to be transformed later into an additional bedroom, a living room, maids’ quarters, etc. Lofts will also have one storage space each, underground parking with the option to buy additional parking space. There will be several independent blocks with private lobbies leading directly to the terrace garden of each loft. Amenities at Mar Mikhael Village will include an outdoor pool and a sun deck terrace with an outdoor lounge area, which will be a retreat-like getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition, there will be a state-of-the-art gym, a storage space for bicycles on the ground floor and visitors’ parking. The Project will also have an elegant commercial area that reinforces the notion of “village living”. The commercial area will include several amenities, ranging from restaurant, to café, mini- market, laundry and others – all overlooking beautifully landscaped gardens with outdoor seating and dining.
