BK Group announced on Thursday, July 28, that the construction of the residential and business complex Tesla Grad, worth EUR 3 billion, might start soon.
The president of the Executive Board of BK Group, Dragomir Karic, said on the occasion of presenting the Tesla Grad project that they were negotiating at the moment with representatives of the City of Belgrade about the location.
– The plan is for Tesla Grad to be built in Belgrade and for the construction to begin as soon as the building permit and other necessary permits are issued – Karic said.
It was said at the presentation that two locations were being considered – one in New Belgrade, across from Belgrade Waterfront, the other one in Makis, behind Ada Ciganlija.
As eKapija wrote earlier
, Tesla Grad will take up around two million square meters of surface, and around 43,000 workers should be employed in the construction, with an additional 18,000 employments planned after the completion of the project.
An international financial center is supposed to be built at the center of the complex, which should contribute to the budget of Serbia with at least EUR 20 billion a year. The center will accommodate various activities, from business meetings to entertainment, containing a great hall, an underground railway station, an international conference center, shops and restaurants and a pool which can be transformed into an ice skate ring in winter – a concept similar to the Rockefeller Center in Manhattan.
