The real estate market in Serbia has been flourishing from year to year. This didn’t change in 2022, despite Covid and the war in Ukraine. The total amount of the money in the real estate market in Serbia in the first six months of last year amounted to EUR 3.6 billion, which is an increase of 25% compared to the same period in 2021, as shown by an analysis by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia.

When it comes to the third quarter, the total amount of the money in the real estate market amounted to EUR 1.7 billion, which is an increase of 10.6% compared to the same period the year before.

There were construction activities everywhere last year, from Belgrade, through Kosmaj and Fruska Gora, to Zlatibor. The trend of luxury condominiums on mountain slopes is noticeable, but so is the trend of office and residential facilities in big city centers.

These are the stories that eKapija’s readers found the most interesting.

1. Hollywood Hill NS

Koloseum Gradnja from Novi Sad and Avangard Gradnja from Temerin are building a luxury settlement Hollywood Hill NS on the slopes of Fruska Gora. The completion of the complex is planned for the end of 2023. Two types of villas are planned - double buildings with two vertical residential units and independent villas. Each facility will have a swimming pool, garage and two to three parking spaces per residential unit, as well as an elevator and its own yard.

According to the project manager Aleksandra Pejovic, the uniqueness of Novi Sad's Hollywood Hill lies in the combination of Fruska Gora nature and Kamenica wind rose, near the city, but above all in the concept of the settlement itself, modeled after Hollywood Hills, a famous residential part of Los Angeles.

– Each villa will bear the name of a Hollywood diva, e.g. Marilyn Monroe, and the internal street will be made to resemble the Hollywood Walk of Fame – our interlocutor stated.

2. Kosmiko Hill settlement

Luxury living among vineyards in the famous Napa wine valley in California inspired the owner of the company Kosmiko doo Beograd, Miroslav Stanojevic, to start the project of the construction of a resort concept that is unique in Serbia, HedoWine, at the foot of the Kosmaj Mountain, in the village of Nemenikuce.

The complex is worth EUR 20 million, and once it is fully finished in the third quarter of 2023, Kosmiko Hill will spread on 200,000 m2. The complex will encompass 34 villas, the vineyards will take up 100,000 m2, and the residents will be provided with a wellness and spa center, a winery, two restaurants and a cafeteria.

– The concept, which initially entailed a hotel and several apartments, grew into Kosmiko Hill, a luxury resort – condominium, which is a combination of urban luxury and nature, with villas, vineyards, a winery, restaurants, a spa center… – Stanojevic, who has lived in Napa himself, said for eKapija.

3. Novi Sad Waterfront

“An Analysis of Traffic with the Help of Micro and Macro Simulations of Traffic Flows in the Shipyard Location in Novi Sad”, which was prepared by Via Inzenjering doo in 2019, shows that around ten buildings might be built in this area.

The space is divided into five zones, one of which is exclusively a business zone, whereas another is exclusively residential. Other zones are mixed and intended for both residential and commercial features. A hotel is planned in one zone as well, so “a balanced ratio of traffic directions” is planned, due to the arrival of guests to the hotel.

According to estimates, there could be 2,299 apartments in these zones, in residential and mixed buildings. The total floor area of the planned facilities is 39,600 m2.

The announcement of the construction was not welcomed by the residents of the Bezanijska Kosa settlement, who gathered at the outdoor sports courts of the Sports Center “11. april” in order to express their dissatisfaction due to the attempts of the investor to change the Detailed Regulation Plan and build three skyscrapers of 100 and 120 meters.

– The is a specific, “loose” row of connected houses, so each house of 102 m2 will have its own access and privacy ensured through separation walls with lined flower pots, as well as front and back yards and a pool. Considering that this is a descending terrain, the pools are elevated, narrow and long and thereby suitable for swimming – Djurdja Djukic, the author of the project and one of the owners of Atelje Djukic, said for eKapija and emphasized that, in terms of its architectural features, that style of construction had not been seen before on Kosmaj.
