The second project is planned in Borca, on 90,000 m2. When asked about the choice of location, she said that it was the direction in which Belgrade was expanding and added that investments in infrastructure were planned as well.
– We expect to raise the standard of this part of the city and to provide young couples with living conditions the kind of which can be found in New Belgrade blocks, but at more affordable prices. That is certainly a great challenge for us – Ivanova said.
Vladimir Djoric, a partner at Zabriskie Studio, says that the old part of Belgrade has fewer free locations for building and that there's too much construction there anyway, which is not the case with New Belgrade.
– The new thing are closed residential-office complexes, condominiums, where the most frequent problem is sound insulation, as is the case with all new buildings, but the construction industry has provided products addressing this problem, so those parameters have been improved as well – Djoric says.
Zorana Zdrale Burlic also mentioned hotel management and said that top quality service was the priority and that the current trend was for guests to be made to feel like home. She also noted that Hotel Indigo
would open soon and that it would have local characteristics.
