Belgrade Waterfront

From all the flags and signage seen when arriving in Belgrade one would imagine the Waterfront development is already part of the city. However, it is a very controversial undertaking that may still take years for completion. It is where the Balkans meet the Arabian Peninsula with around US$ 4 billion of Gulf money being poured in this mega-project to transform the banks of the Sava in a mini-Dubai. The local population is divided in the issue as it involves not only altering Belgrade’s skyline but also making room for the ultra-rich and foreign investors who, oftentimes, disrupt the local real estate market. I guess it is a wait-and-see situation that will unfold in the next years. At least the building where the Sales Office is located has a gourmet restaurant in the heart of bohemian Savamala. If you got curious, there is this article at The Guardian about it.
