A new student dormitory has been built in Buenos Aires’ historic Luisa de la Villa, with the construction project taking longer than anticipated.
According to reports, construction is still underway in the new dormitory at the former Luisa Towers, a building that once housed many of the city’s most famous architecture.
“Luisa de los Campos de la Vila” (Luisa Towers) is the first student dorm project in Argentina.
Construction of the building started in 2016 and will last for at least the next 10 years.
“A dormitory built from scratch, in a completely new space, with an emphasis on education,” the construction company building the dormitory told The Guardian.
“This is the only student dorm at the new site.”
Construction was halted in 2019 because of a lack of funds.
The new LuISA de la Vista has four dormitories that will be built with materials from around the world, and will be able to accommodate 1,600 students.
The dormitory is expected to be completed in 2020, and the university plans to open a new campus in the area.
The building will also feature a large swimming pool, a gymnasium, an outdoor garden, and a bar.
The construction of the dormitaries is a significant step forward for Argentina’s tourism industry, and is also the first time that the country has built a dormitory from scratch.
The project has received much attention, with Argentines praising the project and criticizing its delay.
“The construction of Luisa De las Vila is a new beginning for Argentina,” said Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri.
“It is a welcome development, but it is not enough.
We must work with local architects and engineers to create the best possible housing for our students.”
