TimurTaljanovic said:Blue glass looks really cool, I'm just alittle afraid that it's a trend for this decade! That would suck if the trend is gone in 5 years, and Zagreb looks like a miror!
long foot said:Oh, I like Vjesnik. It is very... elegant, even it was constructed 40 years ago. All Zagreb towers except "Neboder" are OK, but my favourite is Chromos. However, I think we need one taller scyscraper, let's say 50 stores. Maybe Horvatinčić should ask permission for something like that and I am sure he would get it. I mean, there is no chance to get permission for 100 stores tower.
AstroBoy said:Zagreb Fair is the worlds 11th largest exhibition complex with over 100 years in history.
It is now gearing up for a 300 million Euro development which includes more exhibition halls that will include office space/shopping complex/cinemas/recreational facilities that will make it one of the biggest and most important projects for the city of Zagreb.
The new project will be a joint venture with private enterprise and the city of Zagreb which operate the Zagreb Fair (Zagrebacki Velesajam).
The project announced last year has drawn much interest from local and international developers which is turn has started the ball rolling. The project is expected to be built in stages over a 5 year period after a succesful tender has been announced.
Total size of land is 70,000 square metres which is an existing carpark, currently opposite the new Museum of Contemporary Art which is now under construction.
Therefore this project will be huge.
This follows the recent annoucement that the long awaited "Zagreb Shopping City" project will now begin full steam ahead in the next several months after some planning issues caused delays.
