    It is important to state the building is under construction as distinct from an existing building which a prospective buyer can move in immediately.

    Plaster is an interior coating material that isn't weatherproof. The similar material applied to the exterior of a building is called stucco.

    Perhaps my sentence was not correct. I really need to mention that.
    Could you please check the follwoing sentence too. The consruction continues until plaster is applied''. (I wrote ''plaster -coated structure'' instead, but I am going to do some research and find a beter term) And ''See the recent pictures of the current state of the building.''

    Re: Plaster -coated structure/prospective images/

    The construction continues until plaster is applied

    Why do you have to mention this? Isn't the construction going to proceed to completion?

    See the recent pictures of the current state of the building

    The pictures show the current progress of construction.

    The paragraph in the first post need to be rewritten too.

    Sorry, which paragraph are you talking about?

    See the recent pictures of the current state of the building- doesn't sound natural?

    This text needs rewriting:

    Property owner apartments for sale for lower price than tenant builder apartments in the building under construction. 48 -450 square meters. Plaster-coated structure. The 10th and 11th floors. It is possible to buy a few apartments or reconstruct one according to your own project. Suitable for rental business. Located in the city centre on King street. See the prospective images of the building. The price of the area that doesn't exceed 100 square meters is $720 per square meters. For areas that exceed $100 square meters the price is negotiable.
    It's quite a profitable investment as the price will be three times higher upon the completion of the buidling'

    Since the building is under construction, I do not think you can say "the current state of the building". You have pictures to show the progress of construction.

    I asked my friend who is a realtor to explain to me why local builders use the term ''white'' or ''black structure'' and she said the builders call it ''white'' if plaster was applied and black if i wasn't. In the so called ''black structure' ' there is no elecricity, no water pipes.. It it just an empty building with walls. Someone on the Rusisian forum suggeted to use ''Just finished masonry'' to refer to 'black structure'

    I can't imagine there are such buildings without electricity and water supply in this day and age.
