New residential complex takes shape in Thumane

A 278-apartment complex and 155 single family homes are taking over the ruins and devastation caused by the powerful earthquake on November 26, 2019 that left thousands of families homeless. The new residential complex in Thumane is gradually taking its final shape. Prime Minister Edi Rama, accompanied by the Minister of State for Reconstruction Arben Ahmetaj, and the Mayor of Kruja Artur Bushi, today returned to the site to inspect the ongoing construction work.

“Thumane is becoming an urban model,” the government head, while praising builders for the progress and quality work.

“Post-earthquake reconstruction is progressing in whole affected territory, including Fushe-Kruje, and lezhe,” Ahemtaj said.

Meanwhile, first floor in each building will be dedicated to service units, with a part of them set to be granted to businessmen who lost their business premises because of the earthquake.  “A part of the affected shop owners will be entitled to benefit new service units,” Ahmetaj said.

The quake-affected families are constantly moving into their newly-built homes to start a new life, not only in better built back homes, but also in urban complexes featuring services and infrastructure according to highest European standards.
