It includes 9 blocks of flats with a total of 630 premium apartments, from studios to penthouses. Nearby points of interest cover the needs of business people and families: parks (5 minutes-drive to Herastrau Park), hospitals, schools, restaurants, clubs and wellness centres, and good connectivity of the location ensures easy access to downtown, business centres and to the airport, which reduces the time spent in traffic.

In the first 9 months of this year, Luxuria generated about 40% of Impact’s home sales, and the pace of contracting apartments is sustained.
