(Zorana Burlic) “Belgrade Waterfront has kickstarted the local economy, bringing a whole new concept of housing to our areas. It fully transforms the right coast of Sava, brings back access to the rivers to people of Belgrade and enables them to enjoy them every day”, Zorana Burlic, the director of Belgrade Waterfront, the project which changes the look of Belgrade on a daily basis, making it a more beautiful and modern place for living, says in her interview for eKapija.How far has the construction progressed and what are the plans until the end of the year?
– From the first draft, Belgrade Waterfront
is designed as a modern urban settlement which offers to its tenants world-quality housing and to people and guests of Belgrade a place to enjoy themselves and relax. So far, around a million square meters has either been built or is under construction, of the planned 1.8 million in total. We strive to hire, as much as possible, local construction companies, designers and subcontractors. It is very important to us to cooperate, to incite and hire local resources and we do so whenever possible. The quality of construction and the materials we use are world-class, and the purchasers recognize the excellent ratio of the quality and the price. This is also shown by the fact that we have sold over 3,500 apartments, over 870 of which have been occupied so far. Due to the great demand, the construction works have been stepped up, and this year, BW Terraces will be occupied as well, half a year before the planned completion. Also, during the autumn, we are expecting the completion of another two buildings – BW Arcadia and BW Aurora, so we will have a total of over 1,500 occupied apartments.
