The hotel of the Djokovic family at Kopaonik will have 13 suites, a restaurant, a swimming pool and a spa center, eKapija finds out. Intensive preparations for construction documentation have been in progress and we should soon find out when the works will start.
The future hotel of the best Serbian tennis player in the largest Serbian mountain center, became the focus of the public late last year when it was published that Novak’s father, Srdjan Djokovic, (i.e.Family Sport), bought a lot on one of the most attractive locations in Kopaonik). It is a lot where Dolly Bell café used to be, near the Grand hotel and hear the Karaman greben path.
Last December, at the place of former Dolly Bell, Novak Cafe&Restaurant was opened. It was planned to demolish a lot and to build a hotel. It will be designed in a mountain style with four floors.
As eKapija finds out, collection of necessary documentation is in progress so that construction permit would be provided. Family Sport got the location permit December 26, 2013. Public inspection of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the preliminary design has just ended and tomorrow (August 20, 2014), in the offices of the Raska municipality, public discussion and document presentation will be held. The Traffic Institute CIP Belgrade developed a preliminary design.
After public discussion over the Environmental Impact Assessment, the Ministry of agriculture and environmental protection should approve it and then the main design and construction permit will follow. Representatives of the design company and investor could not provide more details for now or to be more specific about construction start but they both confirmed that collection of necessary documentation “in line with the legislation” is in progress.
While we are waiting for new information, we are presenting you a few details form the CIP’s preliminary design on the basis of which we can suppose how the hotel where Djokovic will rest will look like!
As it has been known already, it is one of the best locations in Kopaonik. The lot occupies 709 m2, with a catering facility (former Dolly Bell cafe), while most of the area is free (covered with autochthon vegetation). Hotel Grand and zicara and Karaman greben are nearby.
As we find out, the hotel will be heated and cooled on electricity and solar energy will be used for heating of sanitary water (through 15 solar collectors).
The urban project accepted at the meeting of the Commission for plans in the Raska municipality (December 20, 2013) was developed for the construction of a new facility. The Grand hotel is nearby.
