Podgorica – the municipality of Podgorica has the intention to build with the Hungarian company Trigranit a city center with 120.000 square meters of space for various purposes, which is worth between 200 and 22 millions of euros.
The Mayor of Podgorica Miomir Mugosa said that that should be an entirely new borough of the center of the town, in the area of ex military premise “Moraca”.
– The termination of the urban project as well as the preparations of the open competition for seeking of the strategic partner through private public partnership is in progress. There would be a lot of contents – from offices, banks, maybe even an international school, up to embassies, consulates, great market and congress center, and national theater – said Mugosa to Belgrade “Economist”.
He, as he added, is closely cooperating with the Canadian billionaire Peter Munk, who is one of the stockholders of Trigranit, and he recently bought Tivat Aresnal.
– By coincidence I was among the first ones in Montenegro to meet Peter Munk and since then we have a great communication – said Mugosa. He thinks that the arrival of big investors stimulates also the domestic ones, especially constriction companies, to compete among themselves an in that way become competitive partners in realization of many projects in low and high construction, but also in the turnover of real estates.
– My guide idea is to open in Podgorica as many as possible new working places. The Greeks will soon open an investment bank, and considering the great Russian investments we are expecting the appearance of some Russian bank too – said Mugosa.
He is looking forward to the bank, which will be opened by an Arabian businessman who have recently visited Montenegro, and he also spoke with serious Greek partners who have bought land for construction of a hotel in the place of the former Club of Pensioners.
– They have taken two facilities under the Millennium Bridge, immediately beside the location for the construction of the future building of United nations – said Mugosa.
He reminded that the most important project of the Municipality at the moment is the construction of a mini round about.
In Podgorica, as he added, the sectors of trade and hotelier keeping have been over dimensioned. The town is working on the development of tourism, first of all thanks to private sector.
