Construction work on a marina in Kalaja e Turrës in Albania started in October 2014, following the final approval from the Albanian government. The new facility, a first for Albania, is set to be world-class and will have over 650 berths including moorings for yachts up to 75m in length.
The marina Porto Albania is central part of a broad development project which, at over 250 million, is the largest investment in Albania’s tourism industry to date. Hotels, spa, residential villas, commercial outlets including shops, restaurants and cafés, golf and other sports facilities are all included. The marina Porto Albania, which has big potential as both a visitor and a home port, has great location benefits, including the progressively more popular sailing routes of Croatia, Montenegro and Corfu, and the well-known tourist destinations of Greece and Italy.
Led by the Swiss investment and project management company FINSEC Ltd Zug and its Albanian subsidiary FINSEC Port SHA Tirana, the project calls for expert designers and architects. There is strong collaboration with financial institutions, hotel operators and potential investors. An international multi-disciplinary team has been established to create a truly unique destination in the region. Consultancy firm Arti Proje Consulting Ltd of Istanbul is responsible for the development of marina master plan. Thanks to their extensive experience, which varies from master planning to marina operation, Arti Proje Consulting Ltd has introduced a unique design perspective to the project development. Among other things, the marina itself will also include a VIP yacht club, a helipad and a dedicated pier for visiting superyachts to attract upscale customers. Emilio Tuñón and Marceline Ruckstuhl Arquitectos, Madrid, one of the most prestigious architecture firms in Spain, is in charge of the planning and architecture of the port village. Features of the plan include a hotel, spa centers of 4000 m2, commercial outlets, restaurants, villas and over 350 apartments, botanical garden, golf course and many other amenities for a remarkable experience in Albania
