This is the building that advertises that it has brought "New York Style" to a Costa Rican beach. Well, I am pleased to report that the road in front of this condo is scheduled to be paved very soon.
The local government in Santa Cruz has signed all of the contracts necessary to pave the road in Tamarindo that leads to Playa Langosta, and this condo is located at the beginning of that road. After all, if this building is emulating New York Style, at least it should be located on a road that is paved. The last time I was in New York, the streets were paved.
I apologize for the telephone lines in the foreground of this photo, but, unlike New York, Tamarindo does not have underground wiring. I took this photo a few months ago, and there was still some construction activity going on. Although large buildings are somewhat controversial in Tamarindo, this building does make the community more upscale. These are elegantly designed and furnished condos located at a major intersection in town. This project replaced a group of old shacks that provided hostel accommodations for surfers at a few dollars per night.
