Thats a great find Scanderbeg. I think these houses will be filled mostly by foreigners but at least this will lead the way to a new era of housing. This kind of building goes in hand with urban development and at the same time stimulates the economy by creating a mortgage type system.
This will also create a precedent for future building. It will create a new building culture. Hopefully this will say goodbye to traditional building with walls 2 metters high around the house.

thanx.. i saw a commercial on the television RTK about it, thats how i found it...
the houses will be bought by everyone who can afford it, not only foreigners..

yes i think this project will "set a new standard", and hopefully standard houses in the future will follow this "american model" when building houses..

whats very positive, is that the surrounding areas hajvali, veterniku etc. will gain from the infrastructure built for this "village"



Here is another project, for developing a similar "community" in prishtina: http://www.bernica.eu/

Objektet përreth ish Hotelit “Union”, në Prishtinë, do të shndërrohen në pirg të pavarësisë

Zyrtarët e Kuvendit Komunal të Prishtinës, kanë thënë se së shpejti do të fillojnë me rrënimin e objekteve përreth hotelit “Unionit”, duke i zëvendësuar ato me një pirg të pavarësisë dhe një orë të madhe, e cila do të fillojë të lëvizë, menjëherë pas miratimit të rezolutës në Këshillin e Sigurimit dhe shpalljes së pavarësisë nga Kuvendi i Kosovës.
Lulëzim Nixha, drejtor për planifikim, urbanizëm dhe ndërtimtari në komunën e Prishtinës i ka bërë këto komente gjatë diskutimin publik dhe propozimit për rehabilitimin e Hotelit “Union”.

Ndërkaq sa i përket rehabilitimit të Hotelit “Union”, Nixha ka thënë se me privatizimin e objektit përmes Agjencisë Kosovare të Mirëbesimit, në mars të vitit 2006 dhe në përputhje me planin rregullues të “Qendrës 1” të aprovuar nga Komuna e Prishtinës, është iniciuar edhe zhvillimi i projektit për rehabilitim e tij.

Në anën tjetër, për rehabilitimin e Hotelit “Union”, dy kompanitë që e kanë fituar tenderin për hartimin e projektit kanë dhënë tri zgjidhje arkitektonike.

Në dy të parat struktura e ndërtesës nuk do të preket, kurse në të tretën nënkulmi i kësaj ndërtese do të ndërrohet.

Për këto projekte komuniteti i artistëve nuk e ka dhënë mendimin e vet, ndërkaq pjesëmarrësit tjerë më shumë janë brengosur për çështjet teknike dhe për destinimin e tij.

I just want to compile some of the projects that i saw while i was in Prishtina and took pictures of some of them:

The Entrance to Prishtina from the South, has been widened to 8 lanes, and there is plans to widen all entrances to Prishtina:

Some pictures i took of this improved segment:






In this map the widened 8 lane segment is marked in Black: Work will begin next month on widening of the segment from Prishtina to Fushe Kosova. That segment is marked in Yellow. The segment in Blue is 4 lanes wide:


Projekt për zgjerimin e rrugës Prishtinë-Fushë Kosovë

Ministria e Transportit dhe Postë Telekomunikacionit ka hartuar projektin për zgjerimin e segmentit rrugor Prishtinë-Fushë Kosovë, i cili është një ndër akset rrugore më të ngarkuara.
