"The New Gates of Belgrade"

ITALIAN AMBASSADOR OPENS COMPETITION FOR RESTORATION OF POLICE BUILDING

BELGRADE, April 22 (Beta)-Antonio Zanardi Landi Italy's ambassador in SerbiaMontenegro presented on April 22 a competition for architectural solutions for the restoration of the federal and republican interior ministry buildings damaged by NATO in 1999.

The competition, dubbed The New Gates of Belgrade, will open on May 5 and last until Sept. 9. One of the buildings is located near the Surcin airport while the other is located in Kneza Milosa Street in downtown Belgrade.

Ambassador Landi, who came up with the idea for the competition together with Belgrade's chief architect Djordje Bobic, stressed that his intention had been to help eliminate the "dark image" that Belgrade sometimes projected to visitors from the EU. "The purpose of the competition is to collect ideas for a new, more realistic picture of Belgrade, now en route to the EU," the ambassador said.The best projects will be awarded in October within a promotional manifestation called Days of Italy 2005, which will gather hundreds of Italian businessmen in Belgrade. The grand prize is EUR10,000.

There's no airport mentioned, it's just "The New Gates of Belgrade" - and if you ask me I would remane the thread.
Anyway that's cool, young Italian and Serbian architects could show their vision of the entrence to Belgrade's downtown - one MAJOR bad thing, no matter how good the projects shall be, they WON'T BE BUILT. City and Italian embassy are organizing the competition and the buildings are owned by Serbian goverment. Mr. Bobic said that republic goverment could accept the project but that's not likely to happen.

From www.yu-build.co.yu :

Dana 22. aprila 2005. u 12.00 časova u Ambasadi Italije u Beogradu održana je
konferencija za štampu radi promocije konkursa “Nova kapija Beograda” namenjenog mladim arhitektima.



Reč je o nadmetanju za pronalazak urbanističko-arhitektonskog idejnog rešenja, na koje se mladi srpsko-crnogorski i italijanski arhitekti pozivaju kako bi osmislili projekat za mikrolokaciju koja se nalazi na ulazu u centralnu zonu Beograda, iz pravca aerodroma “Surčin” i “mostarske petlje”, na početku ulice Kneza Miloša, naspram i pored Ministarstva unutrašnjih poslova Republike Srbije.

Ova inicijativa je potekla od utiska koji odaje prisustvo dve zgrade bombardovane 1999. godine i koji posetilac, koji dolazi iz Italije, stiče kada ulazi u Beograd i koji daje jednu potpuno drugačiju poruku o realnosti i životu glavnog grada Srbije i Crne Gore. Od učesnika na konkursu se traži da predlože drugačiju sliku Beograda, koja je više okrenuta budućnosti i koja odgovara stvarnim težnjama zemlje koja je krenula putem integracije i saradnje sa Evropom.

Konkurs, koji promovišu i koji je pod pokroviteljstvom Ambasade Italije u Beogradu i italijanskog Instituta za kulturu u saradnji sa gradom Beogradom, organizovaće Udruženje arhitekata iz Rima i Udruženje arhitekata iz Beograda, pod stručnim nadzorom Arhitektonskog fakulteta Beogradskog univerziteta, Arhitektonskog fakulteta Univerziteta Roma Tre i Arhitektonskog fakulteta “Aldo Rossi”iz Ćezene. Konkurs sponzorišu kompanije SFIR i BID i uživa podršku Ministarstva za nauku i zaštitu životne sredine Republike Srbije.

Žirijem će predsedavati uvaženi arkitekta Gae Aulenti i sačinjavaće ga još ostala četiri člana žirija, od kojih su dvojica Italijani, a druga dvojica Srbi.

Nadmetanje će zvanično biti otvoreno krajem aprila, kada bude bio objavljen odgovarajući konkurs.

Počevši od 5. maja, sve informacije i dokumentacija biće dostupni na web sajtu www.lenuoveportedibelgrado.com

Pobednici će biti proglašeni na jesen, povodom manifestacije “Italija u Beogradu 2005”, koja će se održati od 9. do 11. oktobra 2005.

Israeli firm "Plaza Centers" won this one, after two or three unsuccessful tenders.

Plaza Centers to develop major mixed-use center in Belgrade (RS/IL)
Plaza Centers N.V. has announces that it has won a competitive tender from the Government of Serbia for the development of a new shopping, entertainment and business center on a total built up area of circa. 100,000 m² (with over 2000 parking spaces) in Belgrade, Serbia. This project represents Plaza’s first step into the Serbian market and fulfils one of the Company’s expansion objectives set out in its Prospectus.
Thursday 30 August 2007
The new complex will be located on the prominent site of the former Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs, situated on the main street which runs through the center of Belgrade. The area is home to foreign embassies, including those of the United States, Canada, Germany, Poland among others. In addition the Serbian Government, Ministry of Finance, Belgrade chamber of commerce and Belgrade’s largest public hospital are all nearby, as well as the city fair and the future railway station.

Plaza will partner local Serbian developer for the project, which is expected to have a gross development budget of €150 million. The local partner will be entitled to participate in up to 15% of the project, subject to certain conditions while the project management will be rendered solely by Plaza.

Serbia is one of the Eastern European nations where Plaza sees strong potential for future investment opportunities. Plaza also believes that the Belgrade market offers particular potential, with its large populated catchment area of approximately 2.5 million people. Additionally, as Belgrade has not to date benefited from ‘institutional grade’ investment in retail or commercial real estate, this development will have particular significance in terms of providing a new commercial and cultural destination for both domestic and international visitors.

Commenting on the handover agreement, Ran Shtarkman, President and CEO of Plaza Centers N.V., said, “We are very excited to be taking our first steps into the Serbian market, where we believe our skills and experience in delivering large-scale mixed-use developments can produce significant value, both for our shareholders and for the centre’s tenants and visitors.

“In addition, we look forward to playing a part in the delivery of a new commercial and cultural center for Belgrade, which we hope will attract a range of high quality international and domestic tenants and thereby unlock the considerable potential we see within the Serbian market.”

Construction should start within the next few weeks, once the old building is torn down.
