Forget about history, languages or food – architecture is where cultures truly collide in Serbia. A plan to pour £2.5 billion into an exclusive waterside development has locals praising the modernization of their long-troubled city.
Since the 1990s, deindustrialization urged many Western cities to reinvent themselves and Belgrade is no exception. With its cutting-edge design, comprising world’s most renowned hotels, spacious offices and luxury private retreats, BW is a €2.5 billion investment, sealed between the Serbian government and Abu Dhabi-based developer Eagle Hills. Set to wipe away a messy post-industrial neighborhood to make room for posh office spaces, luxury apartments and a 140k sqm shopping mall – Belgrade Waterfront districht is to be built in breathtaking, glassware, cutting-edge Dubai-like style. The investor is Mohamed Alabbar himself, who is best known for founding Emaar, the company responsible for building the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping mall.
Yesterday we had an honor to welcome thirty top-notch engineers from Germany who all gathered in Belgrade to visit the biggest urban renewal projects in Europe. We took them right at the construction site and conducted a study tour led by a licensed engineer expert and a state senior official.
