History of the building

The Biltmore is a 5-star hotel that is built on the central street, Rustaveli Avenue. The building is interesting as it is a mix of a modern as well as the historical building IMELI, which serves as an entrance of the hotel. The word IMELI comes from the Russian language, and it is an example of the Stalin-era Socialist Classicism. The IMELI building was constructed in 1938. It was designed by Alexey Shchusev, and it was a branch of the Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute. From 1992-95, the Parliament of Georgia was moved to this building, and from 1995 it served as the Constitutional Court. In 2011, the investors got permission from the Tbilisi City Hall to construct a 300-meter-high glass skyscraper, that now has a breathtaking architecture of the 19th-20th centuries, and it is connected to the IMELI building through a glass walkway.
