If anyone wants to make a 200-story skyscraper, let them do it. That is why Zagreb would not have a 200-storey skyscraper from which to look at Zagreb from a bird’s eye view. Well, if I live, I might have one office upstairs, “said Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandi in March 2019, reports Jutarnji.
It was Wednesday, the acts of the mayor, the day before the session of the City Assembly. The theme of the day was the project “City within a city – Manhattan on the hippodrome”, which will soon become Bandi’s Potemkin village.
But almost two years later, loyal associates of the Zagreb mayor decided to fulfill his wish so that one day he could see Zagreb from a bird’s eye view, from the top of the largest skyscraper in Croatia, almost in the city center.
Namely, the City Office for Strategic Planning and Development of the City of Zagreb, led by Sanja Jerkovi, sent a document for public discussion that allows the construction of skyscrapers up to 140 meters high on 35 floors along Heinzelova Street, about a hundred meters to the intersection with Vukovar Street, next to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. and as Jutarnji finds out, the entire document was sent to the procedure in order to entrust the realization of that project to the Austrian fund which is the owner of the plot itself.
According to the Draft Proposal of the Decision on the implementation of the city project for an office building in Vjekoslava Heinzela Street, this space is marked as a predominantly business zone in which it is possible to build and arrange business premises, ie offices, shops, catering and facilities that do not interfere with housing. as the main purpose of the city, it accompanies facilities, public and social purposes, smaller department stores, hotels, work, sports and recreation, public garages, parks and children’s playgrounds, and special purpose spaces.
It is a plot of almost eight thousand square meters and according to the document that was sent for public discussion, the total height of the building cannot exceed a height of more than 140.5 meters.
According to this document, the maximum number of underground floors can be five, and the largest number of above-ground floors must not exceed 35. The height of the ground floor floor itself is 4.5 meters, and the height of the other floors is four meters.
Who actually owns the plot?
It is about the company Elona projekt, which according to the Court Register was founded on August 25, 2020, and then the ownership in that company was owned by entrepreneurs connected with the company VMD, which is building residential buildings in the immediate vicinity of the future city project.
According to the court register, the Elona project bought only the land and is now the sole owner. Behind the Elon project as the founding company is the Austrian fund Imbea Immoeast Beteiligungsverwa, and it is represented by directors Darko Grizelj and Wolfgang tsch. The registration of changes in the members of the administration at the Commercial Court was made on January 25.
Darko Grizelj, director of the Elona project, which represents the owners, told the company from Vienna to Jutarnja that his responsibilities were related to a later phase, ie that he was hired to obtain all necessary permits before construction and other activities during construction.
As far as he knows, this is a project that passed the tender in 2010, ie the completion of the existing city project. It is expected, therefore, that the project will be realized in exactly that form, according to the work of the Pilotproject studio of Matej Bender and Dragan Crnogorac.
From other sources close to investors, the beginning of the realization of the project, whose value is estimated at 80 to 100 million euros, is expected in the current year, 2021, Jutarnji writes.
Bender himself won the competition announced and conducted by the renowned Zagreb company Stimar, with the project of two twin skyscrapers that are interconnected.
According to this public urban competition, it was stated that in the context of the Heinzelova-Vukovarska UPU, the project was listed as a kind of barrier between the city road and 1,200 planned apartments.
In that sense, a building in Darvinova Street has already been built on the location where the land of Croatia Bus used to be, and the company VMD is still building apartments.
According to the details of the competition itself, the construction of 979 parking garages was planned, of which about 156 were planned for the future hotel, 262 for the needs of business, and 561 garages for trade and visitors.
The “twins” themselves, as imagined by Bender and the Montenegrin, up to 140 meters high, would be connected by a space in which a shopping center and catering facilities would be located.
According to the architect’s idea, both towers would not have the same function. That June tower, which is closer to Vukovarska, would be intended for offices, and their approximate area is estimated at about 30 thousand m2.
The North Tower would be a five-star hotel, with 286 rooms of about 35 m2, and on the last three floors there would be apartments for Vip guests.
A congress center would be located on the top floor of the building. According to the winning work, 30 thousand m2 would refer to offices and a hotel.
The architect awarded for the project from the Pilot Project studio, Mateja Bendera, briefly told Jutarnja that he was not aware of the new circumstances surrounding the project and that he was aware that these were new investors and that he did not know whether the project would be realized today, 11 years later. his, victorious work.
The conversation quickly ended with the statement that he was not interested in giving further comments on that topic and that he was in the middle of the meeting.
Namely, this is just one in a series of numerous steps to obtain all possible papers that would enable the realization of this “city project” as it is called in Bandi’s office.
After the public debate, Mayor Milan Bandi will first have to make a conclusion approving the end of the public debate and send the entire document on the Draft Decision on the implementation of the city project for the office building in Vjekoslava Heinzela Street to the City Assembly for voting.
If there is an aura like never before, that fashion document could be found at the session in March or April, Jutarnji writes. And those sessions could be the last in this convocation of the City Assembly, because the assembly will be dissolved due to the local elections that will be held in May this year.
Many candidates have already stood out in these local elections, and the construction of a 140-meter skyscraper in the city center will certainly be the subject of an election campaign.
