The Directorate for Property of the Republic of Serbia has placed a non-binding public call for letters of intent for the the construction of the Beograd Centar Railway Station and the accompanying commercial features.
As it's been stated, the Republic of Serbia invests the land and enables the construction on the already completed structures and the potential partner funds the construction of the railway station building and commercial facilities (joint construction).
The Prokop Railway Station building is being built in line with the parameters defined by the Urban Plan and is legally the public property of the Republic of Serbia. Potential investors may provide their conceptual designs in line with the urban parameters and the competent authorities will estimate whether it is possible and necessary to change the current urban plan based on the conceptual design in question.
After the submitted letters have been analyzed, the competent authorities of the Republic of Serbia may start the appropriate procedure for the choice of partner, and the analysis is to be carried out by a mixed work group, formed by the Government and consisting of representatives of the Directorate, the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, the City of Belgrade, Infrastruktura Zeleznice Srbije a.d. and the Belgrade Railway Junction Construction Company.
The call is non-binding on all accounts and is placed solely to the end of assessing the market. The Directorate is not obliged by it to start any procedure for the selection of partner.
The bid submission deadline is late October.
Let us remind that, after 40 years of construction works, the future Beograd Centar Railway Station at Prokop opened for traffic in early January 2016. In mid-August, an agreement on the construction of access routes was signed with a group of contractors headed by Strabag. The completion of the construction is expected in May 2017, whereas the Prokop Railway Station should be completed in 2018.
