The Real Estate complex, planned in a rational style by the Engineers Giuseppe Paleologo and Armando Danesi, is articulated in diverse buildings that are divided into isolated pavilions, some of which are destined to host technological rooms and service areas. The buildings are mainly articulated on one level with the exception of the main building and another one that have two levels. The complex covers a surface of 19,806 m² on which, as well as the buildings already mentioned, there is a swimming pool, green areas and sporting equipment. The location of the complex, near the sea, makes it of considerable interest for the requalification and touristic and hotel use, or to be transformed into flats, a scenario which is compatible with the previsions of the urban regulations in force.

The Real estate complex is located in the Torre Faro area, in the Municipality of Messina (234,293 inhabitants), part of the Metropolitan area of Messina (631,297 inhabitants) near the “Ganzirri” Lake, in a position that is in between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the shores of the Lake itself. The Torre Faro area is 13 km from the city centre, with which it is connected with via consolare Pompea, which connects with S.S.113 dir. and goes along the Tyrrhenian coast of Sicily up until Palermo. This territorial area is distinguished by a high level of interest in the real estate market, both for its stable residency as well as its seasonal residency. Near the lake, amongst other things, there also is a hospital and diverse business activities. The Train Station “Messina Centrale”, that guarantees connections with the cities of Catania, Palermo, Siracusa, Rome and Milan, is 16 km from the property, while the international airport “Fontanarossa” of Catania (9.1 million passengers in 2017) is 126 km from the area.
