Actually the Grand Hermitage in Zlatnite has been opened, the biggest Kempinski in the world.
but the greatest part of your post were the 4 proposals for the Itower. I suggest you open a new thread for all 4, because they're obviously the tallest of them all, and on top of that near the Trade building, making it possible for a further creation of a mini-cluster!
Of all for, I prefer the Sakaro project, though obviously I'd prefer the tallest to be built
BTW, for the S-center, I posted it in the other thread, it's been renamed Landmark Centre

Awesome... The Sakaro project is cool because of its uniqueness, but it almost looks like something out of a theme park. On the other hand, the Arkont-A tower looks better in my opion, but its shape is not as eye-catching. Still, they are all pretty cool.

Itower project - 28-storey multifunctional building
in downtown Sofia
Itower project suggests the construction of 28-storey multifunctional building, consisting of four- or five-star hotel, restaurants, entertainment and sports facilities, large retail areas, offices, banks and information bureaus. The building will be located in downtown Sofia, at Solni Pazar square.
The hotel section will have all components needed for its class: reception hall and lobby, bars and restaurants, conference halls, sports facilities. The hotel's approximate capacity will be about 330 rooms and suits with about 400 beds.
Other sections of the complex in respect of capacity, content and organization will be adequate to its high class and palpable volumetric presence in Sofia's main downtown kernel:
• retail spaces with possibility for flexible reconstruction;
• spaces for offices, bureaus, different services, etc.;
• contemporary multifunctional fitness centre with swimming pool, tennis-court, medical attendance.
All functional groups of the complex will be organized mainly towards inner pedestrian mall which culminates in vertical open space, saturated with terraced greenery and water effects. The subterranean levels of the complex will provide with well organized parking areas and spaces for 340 cars.
Glass will predominate over the facade, complemented by metal and constructional components. The high body of the hotel section will be prevailing over the terraced, descending north, stories of other functional parts: retail and business, entertainment and sports.
Total net floor areas of the different sections in square meters*:

Hotel 28970
Restaurants 5450
Retail and services 4850
Business, congress and conference infrastructure 1300
Rehabilitation and sport 5340
Entertainment 1650
Underground parking 8980
Business sector 2160
Technical premises. installation and other areas 2420
Plot area 5620
Total gross floor area about 61120

* The project is now being worked out. Changes may be made, depending on the will of investors. The parameters of each functional system will be specified when design works are finished.

I like the Arkont project most, although it looks a little bit like a TV tower with a helicopter landing site on the top.
3tmk, I think the Soravia Center was also sold to the Landmark Investment Fund, I guess the developer of the Soravia Center and S-Center, Soravia Bulgaria, needs the money for its new project - an 100 000 m2 shopping mall in Sofia.

Stan Marsh, what's this 100000m2 mall you talk of? Can you post some pictures of it, or perhaps a summary of some sort? Thanks for the info.

Not exactly the right place to post this but i could not find any other thread about Bulgaria and its economy/industry news.

@By the way i am impressed by all these constructions projects running , the black sea coastal region of Bulgaria especially is very nice and for sure it will attract more and more investments in the near future...

from www.ansamed.it

Greece ranked the second top foreign investor in Bulgaria for the overall period of January 1992 to March 2005, with investments by Greek companies reaching 20.1 million in the first quarter of 2005, bringing the overall figure to 1,054.6 billion dollars, according to figures released by the Bulgarian Foreign Investment Agency (BFIA).

The total of directly invested Greek capital in Bulgaria over the period January 1992 to March 2005 reached 1,054.6 billion dollars, ranking Greece in second place among the top foreign investors in the neighbouring Balkan country, following Austria.
According to BFIA figures citing the National Bank of Bulgaria as the source, Austria topped the list of foreign investors in Bulgaria with total direct investments of 1,829 billion dollars over the period January 1992 to march 2005.
Austria toppled Greece from first place in the past few years due to exceptionally high investments made, 163.2 million dollars in the first quarter of 2005 and 923.7 million dollars in 2004, against 20.1 million dollars in the first quarter of 2005 and 156.9 million dollars in 2004 by Greek interests.
A key factor in the jump in Austrian investsments was the acquisition of the Bulgarian Telecommunications Company (BTC), the Bulgarian national telecoms provider (in June 2004, after two years of political and legal wrangling, the Austrian holding company Viva Ventures succeeded in a 730 million euros leveraged buyout of 65 percent of BTC, with the obligation to invest up to 700 million euros in modernisation and digitalisation, half of which was slated to be invested within five years of the acquisition).(ANSAmed).

Some great projects going on in Bulgaria. Kempinski Hotel Grand Hermitage looks like an amazing project.
