The main assets of this location are the coefficient of construction of 1.5 and the current conceptual design of the 21,674-m2 hotel. The location doesn't require the preparation of an urban project.
The conceptual design of the hotel envisages 517 beds and a number of features. The hotel is to be in the 4+ category and to feature more than 150 parking spaces in an underground garage, a spa center with a large indoor pool and a smaller indoor/outdoor pool, two restaurants which can be merged into a large one, numerous outlets and cafes with gardens...Location 2
, next to the first one, has 10,278 m2 in area. The coefficient of construction is 1.2, and there's a possibility of the urban project envisaging the construction of 3-4 hotels with a total area of around 16,000 m2. The infrastructure is identical to that featured in the previous location.Location 3
has around one hectare and allows for the building of houses, with the coefficient of construction of 0.4 (per parcel). There's also the conceptual design featuring 10 apartments per facility. The paved road is 300 meters away from the location, and the Ministry of Tourism has set aside RSD 40 million for the utility infrastructure in 2017, which will solve the problem of water supply and sewerage in those parcels as well.
The planned three lifts will be located 250 meters away from the location and the existing gondola is 550 meters away.Location 4
has 4,030 square meters, the coefficient of construction is 1.0 and the floor area ratio is 30%. The characteristic feature of this location is that it doesn't require the preparation of an urban project, and the future three lifts are 50 away. The infrastructure is located next to the parcel.
Antic says that there has been interest in these locations, especially since late 2016, when the DPR of the 2nd phase was adopted. The improvement of the transportation infrastructure has also contributed to this.
– The first time I visited Stara Planina, back in 2005, there wasn't a single road sign, a normal road, nor even a suggestion of a tourist center. In all these years, the transportation infrastructure has been developed and numerous roads have been repaired, whereas plans are being prepared and funds secured for others at an increased pace – Goran Antic says.
Once the infrastructure is completed, the potential of Stara Planina will become even more prominent, because, as he says, “the richness of the plant and animal life of Stara Planina is unparalleled in Southeast Europe”.
– Stara Planina is primarily conceived of as a mountain center, not a ski center. The focus is thereby on the summer months, as there are 5-6 waterfalls, the Zavoj Lake, the highest peak in central Serbia – Midzor, as well as numerous picturesque areas far more impressive than those of Kopaonik and Zlatibor, only a dozen kilometers away – Antic concludes.
