New Tallest for Ljubljana Approved - New Kolizej

I have already posted similar thread in the East European section:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=145879


New Kolizej
Ljubljana is going to get a new commercial complex that will include three towers of which one will have 25 storeys and will make it the new Ljubljana's tallest building. The construction of this complex is about to begin in 2005 and will cost ~150 MIO Euros.

The location of the new complex:


This are the photos that I made at the exhibition showing all proposed designs, including the winner (click on any of the photos to get a bigger version):

The Winner
Neutelings Riedijk Architects - Netherlands:








Other proposals
Foreign Office Architects - UK:








David Chipperfield Architects - UK:









Bolles-Wilson - Germany:









Rafel Moneo - Spain:





Heikkinen - Komonen Architects - Finland:



--------------------------------------------------------------------

Another approved project for Ljubljana (called "Potniski center Ljubljana"), of which construction is planned to start the next year as well (a few blocks away from the newly approved tallest one):







This tallest greenish skyscraper might also temporarely claim the title of Ljubljana's tallest, if it gets built before the New Kolizej komplex.

Wow, thats a pretty good range in designs. What are the heights of the two approved towers? They would have to be around the 100m mark considering they both are around the 25 level height.

Nice scrapers for Ljubljana!

So the Potniški Center will go under construction next year? Finally! The area around the train station is horrible, looks like Chernobyl, almost. :tounge2:

The tallest greenish looking skyscraper is ~80 (so was I told). The other one will be ~100. I don't know the exact heights though.

Good news for Ljubljana. I'm a huge fan of Neutelings Riedijk. Here and here some other projects.

Great drawings, Nightsky. And thanx for finally adding some buildings to the Ljubljana diagram. I think it's the poorest one on skyscraperpage by far. Really! Someone should do some drawings of other buildings too, although I'm not sure where to find the heights.

LOL! 400,000?? Yeah, right. Think 250,000

You don't actually expect 25% of Slovenia lives in Ljubljana, do you? :P

As for Maribor, it's just over 100,000, so KM, you were close

The city of Ljubljana has about 230.000 - 250.000 inhabitants. The last thing we need is almost half of Slovenia living there. It's bad already, that other cities are left out as Ljubljana wants to become the centre of everything in Slovenia.
But other than that it's a beautiful and cool city.

Yeah, this country is very centralised, we desperately need that regional division. But we can't help not being so centralised, it's tough to have regions where only 100,000 people live.

Ljubljana city is ~260.000....Ljubljana urban area is ~490.000

These figures are more or less quite correct, will try to get the official data though.

Blaž, no offence, but I honestly doubt there are 500,000 people in the metro of Ljubljana. Unless you counted the whole of Gorenjska and Notranjska in that.

These are the official stats (http://www.ljubljana.si/mol/statistika/letopis2003.pdf, http://www.stat.si/doc/statinf/2004/si-150.pdf):

There were 264.269 citizens in Ljubljana in 2003.
There were 495.101 citizens in the urban Ljubljana area (whatever urban Ljubljana area means) in 2003.

Daily migration to Ljubljana is ~120.000 people (the right number can be found on http://www.stat.si/ website, but can't remember where exactly I read that).

@Edolen1: Yeah, 264.269 would probably be the right number here, as I have absolutely no clue what urban Ljubljana area includes.

I think I know. http://www.sigov.si/zrs/skte/karta7.jpg the pink area numbered '1' is most probably it. But it's still way too small to actually comprise 500,000 people. The only major towns in those municipalities comprised in the urban area besides Ljubljana are Domžale, Kamnik, Grosuplje, Litija, Vrhnika and Logatec. I'm not sure if they make up 250,000 people..
