The City of Belgrade has advertised a new sale of Sava Centar at a lower price, which amounts to EUR 17.5 million.
As said, the purchaser obliges to carry out construction and finishing works on the adaptation and reconstruction within five years, and the value of the works cannot be lower than EUR 50 million. The purchaser will also oblige not to change the purpose, that is, to keep Sava Centar in the function of congress tourism, considering that it has the previous protection status.
In signing the agreement with the purchaser, a penalty of 20% of the achieved sales and purchase price will be agreed in case the purchaser fails to meet the obligations taken fully or partially and to provide a first-class banking guarantee as a security for a potential payment of the agreed penalty.
The artworks and the historical works and the movable and immovable cultural goods in the facility are not subject to the sale.
Eligible bidders are all natural and legal persons that submit full bids by November 6, 2020. A participant in the procedure must pay a deposit of EUR 1,754,880 in dinar countervalue at the middle exchange rate of the NBS on the day of the payment.
The public bidding will be held on November 9, 2020.
