The multi-storey split level development comprises of twenty three (23) units of one to three bedrooms with a panoramic view over the bay of Valparaiso.
The building has concrete structure on lower floors and steel structure of top floors making it resistant to earthquakes or seismic movements and increase durability for the long term.
Out of the 23 units 18 units were sold in the general market and five (5) units are retained by CHL A under rental management.
For the rental properties CHLA will provide tenancy management and maintenance services.
