Swahili Dreams is a luxurious, eco-friendly building fusing contemporary architecture, lifestyle, and Swahili tradition. Taking the scheme of condominiums, the project sits in the heart of the town of Lamu and consists of nine living units, each with one or two bedrooms. It adopts the old flavor of the Island, while being innovative in its all-modern facilities, and environmental design.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Javier CallejasLamu, Kenya, is the oldest surviving Swahili town in East Africa, with a culture born from African, Arab and Asian heritage, and an architecture still, to a great extent, intact. On the coast of the Indian Ocean, it is designated a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe Old Town, where the Swahili Dreams are, is a maze of typical narrow, quiet, shady and fresh streets, with twisted alleyways. Houses are distinct for their courtyard configuration, surrounded by thick, coral stone walls and accessible through characteristic, elaborately carved wooden doors. Swahili Dreams takes part in the ongoing development of the Lamu Corridor and starts an offer of modern, secure, eco-friendly lifestyle.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasSave this picture!© Javier CallejasBy articulating the project around, we created an ensemble born from the morphology of the townscape and perfectly integrated to it. Through offsets and setbacks, the volumes are simple and harbor a clean, white geometry. Material distinction, between plaster finish and coral stone walls, amplifies the variation of the project while using local materials and know-how.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe aim, overall, was to create a building with a fragmented geometry at the scale of Lamu. The houses are oriented for optimal views: from strategically-positioned windows, and ample but private terraces, including ones on the rooftop, the building frames views over Lamu Town, the Indian Ocean, and the neighboring Manda Island.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasEvocative of the palaces of the ancient Sultans, Swahili Dreams blends design with artisanal crafts. Local artisans hand-designed all finishes, exterior and interior, starting from Lamu-style plaster work throughout the project.Main living areas are enhanced with intricate Swahili ceiling designs, beamed ceilings, and polished floors.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Javier CallejasWooden joineries complete the spaces, with hand-designed lattices and patterns: from wooden shutters on sunny façades, to fix wooden lattices on windows, to railings on full-height openings, they embrace tradition and participate in the passive climate-control for filtering sun and letting wind through.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasWe wanted to invent homes in perfect harmony with their context, and that adopt sustainable lifestyles. A Roman-inspired pool and spa occupies the ground floor, divided with walls and partitions that give it intimacy, shade and freshness. Two ventilation shafts take off from there and go till the roof terrace of the building. These wind-catch towers “catch” the wind from overhead and allow it to enter the depth of the building; this way, all apartments have cross-ventilation, with all sides able to open up. Like a reduced patio, they also allow for filtered light to come through.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasLoad-bearing walls, made of locally sourced coral blocks, and reinforced concrete slabs, were designed to reduce heat in the interiors by being a big enough mass for thermal absorption. The exterior finish is of Lamu plaster with anti-fungal treatment, allowing it to protect the building and last over time; its white color reflects the sun and further reduces heat absorption.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasWater is managed through a 30’000 liter underground rainwater catcher that allows near-sufficiency and good use of natural resources. Solar-power water heating is installed to initiate clean energy.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago June 6, 2019 1,426 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribe Rep. Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee said that one of the most important things that the current Congress and administration could do to reform the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), was to forgive the program’s debt.Speaking at a recent National Flood Conference, Waters enumerated the various benefits provided by the NFIP to taxpayers and policyholders.”The NFIP makes flood insurance available to millions of homeowners, renters, and business owners and also helps those policyholders to reduce their risk by providing flood mapping, floodplain management, and mitigation services,” she said. “These activities help local communities and individuals prepare for the financial impact of flooding, whether it is caused by heavy rainfall that affects families living in the Midwest or life-threatening storms that pummel the millions of homes and businesses along the coasts.”Despite these benefits, Waters said the “NFIP continues to be at risk.”Waters has been at the forefront of renewing NFIP legislation. In 2012, she joined Congresswoman Judy Biggert in sponsoring the NFIP renewal legislation that came to be known as “Biggert-Waters” – a five-year reauthorization that focused on putting the NFIP on a path to fiscal sustainability.During her address, Waters said that while Congress still had a lot of work ahead to enact the long-term reauthorization of NFIP, it was an issue that “defied partisanship.”” I am encouraged that so many of us in Congress–on both sides of the aisle–have identified reauthorization as a top priority,” Waters said.Additionally, she said that the NFIP has been carried along through twelve short-term extensions since 2017, and has even experienced brief lapses during that time. “This haphazard approach to legislating puts communities at risk and undermines the health of our housing market.”Outlining her plan to enact legislation along with Ranking Member Patrick McHenry, Waters said that affordability would be the focus of the new plan.”Although premium increases were slowed with the passage of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, there is still much room for improvement,” Waters said. “Policyholders continue to be burdened with unfair fees and surcharges that have nothing to do with their actuarial risk.”Touching upon why one of the most important steps in NFIP’s reform was to forgive its debt, Waters said, “It is simply unacceptable that the very policyholders who are trying to do the right thing but are struggling to make the payments are paying for the servicing of a debt that was accrued at no fault of their own. I will not rest until something is done to address this $20 billion debt and the impact it has on policyholders.”She said that she was also prioritizing “reforms to and investments in mitigation which is proven to save taxpayers’ dollars in the long term.”Read her complete remarks here.

LPETTET/iStock(LEWISTON, ME) — This week handed a big win to candidate Safiya Khalid and her belief that with persistence, one can overcome adversity.On Tuesday, Khalid, 23, became the first Somali-American elected to the city council of Lewiston, Maine, winning nearly 70% of the vote.She was one in a number of historic wins for local elections across the U.S., with Nadia Mohamed, 23, elected as the first Somali-American and Muslim woman to the city council in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, and Chol Majok, 34, becoming the first refugee elected to public office in Syracuse, New York.Khalid’s victory comes almost exactly a year after Ilhan Omar became the first Somali-American to win a seat in Congress.And, while each of these cities carries unique stories around immigration throughout the last two decades, Lewiston is a special case. Going back to 2002, a little more than 15 years before Khalid’s big win, more than 1,000 Somali immigrants and refugees found Lewiston and made it home. Khalid was one of them in 2006.“When we came to the United States, we were first assigned to Elizabeth, New Jersey, but we couldn’t adjust to the environment in that area,” Khalid told ABC News on Thursday. “We did not have a sense of community there. … For me and my family, Lewiston was such a welcoming community.”While Lewiston has become home to a number of immigrants and refugees alike, it took a lot of pain and patience for the city to get to this place.In October 2002, then-Mayor Laurier Raymond wrote a letter to the Somali community asking its elders and leaders to stop encouraging other immigrants to move to Lewiston.“Please pass the word: We have been overwhelmed and have responded valiantly. Now we need breathing room. Our city is maxed-out financially, physically and emotionally,” he wrote.The fears surrounding the increase in Somali immigrants to Lewiston back in 2002 grew from the same root that can be seen today in cities and towns across the U.S.: a fear of losing jobs, housing opportunities and an overall weakened economy.The city of Lewiston found itself under the spotlight a number of times after Raymond’s letter.In 2012, former Lewiston Mayor Robert MacDonald made national news after he said that immigrants should “leave your culture at the door” in a BBC interview; and in 2016, former Gov. Paul LePage took the internet by storm after his controversial remarks regarding out-of-state drug dealers coming into Maine.“These are guys by the name D-Money, Smoothy, Shifty. … half the time, they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave,” LePage said.Lewiston, a former milltown, however, appears to have risen above the hate.The emergence of Somali immigrants nearly two decades ago was followed by lowered crime rates, a number of businesses opened by the Somali community as well as the arrival of more immigrants from countries all over the world, according to the Sun Journal newspaper in 2011.Khalid credited Lewiston with being the first place she found opportunity and a sense of belonging.“Lewiston is where I learned to write my name, where I grew up and where I received an education through the public school system,” she said.During Khalid’s graduation in May from Emerge Maine, an organization that recruits and trains Democratic women who want to run for office, she was chosen as class speaker and took that opportunity to announce her campaign. She gave a speech with Maine’s Gov. Janet Mills sitting in the audience.She said, however, that her interest in politics had been first sparked after the 2016 election.“I got into politics in 2017 after the election of Donald Trump and having Paul LePage as governor. It pushed me to run for city council because of the racist mayors that we continued to elect here in Lewiston,” Khalid told ABC News. “My haters are my motivators.”Khalid said she has been a victim of racist trolls on the internet who spewed hate and Islamophobic comments and threats to her.“During the last week before the election, there were a lot of people saying hateful things to me. The entire race turned into a negative campaign,” she said. “It was a lot of hateful social media and harassment and threats, and it really ripped my heart that people would say these terrible things to someone they never met and didn’t know.”That didn’t stop Khalid. Instead, she kept knocking on doors and meeting residents.“What pushed me were the people I met at the doors. They were the most genuine, kind-hearted people I have ever met. They welcomed me into their homes, and we had such wonderful, long conversations. Those were the people of Lewiston,” she said.Since her win Tuesday, the internet — that was once a source of torment for Khalid just last week — has been filled with praise from influential politicians like former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, presidential candidate Julian Castro and Ilhan Omar.Khalid now hopes to pour her newfound, winning energy into what made her who she is today: public school education.“I’ve been telling people since March that I want to build a vibrant community for all residents of Lewiston. We need to focus on our young people, bring them back to Lewiston, and find ways so that they can live and work here. That means going back and focusing on our education,” she said. “I want to invest in our students because they deserve the highest quality of education.”“Change takes time and it’s hard,” she said. “But if you believe in yourself and you believe in your community, anything’s possible. Tuesday night, we proved that.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
Share via Shortlink Shear called it a “once-in-a-lifetime” project and expects buyers to come from all over the world, especially people who covet the Waldorf brand. “You just don’t get to build a Waldorf every day,” he said.Construction of the tower could begin in a year, depending on sales, Shear added. It will be built next to PMG’s X Miami apartment tower, and just south of the Holiday Inn downtown Miami.PMG Downtown Developers LLC paid $80 million, or about $900 per square foot, for the 2-acre site in November 2014.Dino Michael, senior vice president and global head of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, said Waldorf, which is owned by Hilton, has been trying to enter the Miami market “for quite some time.”Developers have increasingly partnered with luxury brands in South Florida, including Porsche Design, Armani/Casa, Missoni and Aston Martin. The Related Group recently launched sales of Baccarat Miami, which will eventually include three towers at 444 Brickell Avenue. Sales for the first 75-story building start in the $800 per-square-foot range.(Rendering via ArX Solutions)The tallest building in Miami currently is the 85-story Panorama Tower, a mixed-use hotel, luxury rental, office and retail building that Florida East Coast Realty completed in Brickell in 2018.Michael said the Waldorf Astoria building will “dominate” the Miami skyline.“What I really want is when you walk into the hotel and the residential component… you get a sense of architecture, brand and reassurance that you’re in a Waldorf Astoria,” he said.About a year ago, Dajia US tapped Douglas Elliman to handle sales of the refurbished Waldorf Astoria in New York. Waldorf also has residential developments underway in Antigua, Dubai, Beverly Hills, and Jakarta.Contact Katherine Kallergis Full Name* Email Address* PMG principals Kevin Maloney (middle), Ryan Shear (left) and Dan Kaplan with a rendering of Waldorf Astoria Miami (PMG, Muse Residences, Rendering via ArX Solutions)The developers of Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami, planned as the city’s tallest residential tower at 100 stories, are launching sales, The Real Deal has learned.The luxury project, at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, will be the highest skyscraper south of Manhattan at 1,049 feet tall, the developers said. Property Markets Group, Greybrook Realty Partners and Hilton are partnering on the tower.It will mark the first Waldorf Astoria development in South Florida. The building, with 360 condos and 205 hotel rooms and suites, will feature the Peacock Alley lounge, a signature restaurant, indoor and outdoor event spaces, a resort-style pool deck with cabanas, a spa and fitness center.ADVERTISEMENTThe building was designed as a stack of nine offset glass cubes, by architect Carlos Ott, with architect of record Sieger Suarez.(Rendering via ArX Solutions)PMG, led by Kevin Maloney, Ryan Shear and Dan Kaplan, announced the Waldorf Astoria brand in 2018, but the project has been in the works since 2014.Hilton Management Services will manage the property, according to a release. The hotel will be on the first three “cubes” of the building, and the condos will be above them.Units will start at $1 million, and $1,100 per square foot, increasing to about $2,500 a square foot, depending on the location in the building. PMG’s in-house sales team includes Aura Aragon, Alejandra Castillo, Karine Carvalho, Daiana Quiceno and Christian Tupper.Douglas Elliman’s Eklund | Gomes Team, led by Fredrik Eklund, Julia Spillman and John Gomes, will work with the in-house team.Ryan Shear, a managing principal at PMG, said the launch was driven by the strong sales market. Developers have increasingly launched new South Florida condo projects this year, citing the surge in luxury home sales.PMG and E11even Partners also launched sales of a hotel and condo tower near downtown Miami earlier this year.“We’ve obviously been preparing for a long period of time,” Shear said. “The market turned when we launched E11even [Residences] in January. We did not expect sales to go as quickly as they did.”Craig Studnicky, president and CEO of brokerage RelatedISG, is partnering with PMG as a consultant to the project.Read moreMiami condo craze returns as developers look to seize the momentWaldorf Astoria tower in downtown Miami scores $33M pre-development loanPMG, E11even Partners plan 65-story condo-hotel tower in downtown Miami Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Message* condo marketdowntown MiamiHotelsPMGwaldorf astoria
During the collection of ship-based observations, heaving of the vessel may lead to variation in the descent rate of a CTD package. This can result in the package being pulled upward through previously sampled water, leading to difficult to quantify errors due to the complex wake. To reduce this problem to one of manageable stature, we use the simple paradigm of two-dimensional flow past a cylinder. By using a tracer with a gradient along the flow, we quantify the effect of the cylinder on its distribution and the impact of postprocessing. At high Reynolds numbers, over 200, uniform translation leads to a small error in the tracer value. This error is likely negligible at the much higher Reynolds number of the ocean. When the flow is oscillated longitudinally, there are two main sources of error; attached vortices may propagate around the cylinder and/or shed vortices may translate into the path of the cylinder. Postprocessing by removing records from previous pressure levels removes much of the first error, due to it occurring as the package ascends. However, the second source of error is more difficult to remove, due to it occurring when the package is once again descending. In general, results indicate that long-period oscillations are preferable. While the magnitude of the errors are comparable to those from short-period oscillations, they are spread farther apart in time and space and the overall effect is to localize the errors in small regions of the final depth profile.
