Belgrade, 24 September 2018: Representatives of Belgrade Waterfront and the Serbian construction company Gradina signed a new contract, assigning Gradina as the main contractor for BW Galerija, a shopping mall that will cover an area of 300,000 sqm, of which 143,000 sqm is above ground. Gradina Company has already been in charge of structural work on the mall and according to the new contract, it will now be responsible for the complete facades and installations, as well as the interior and finishing works.
BW Galerija, located within Belgrade Waterfront, will be the largest shopping mall in Serbia and the region, with retail facilities on the ground floor and on two more floors. The shopping mall — set to open in 2020 — is designed in accordance with the highest industry standards, featuring 93,000 sqm of lease space and 3,600 parking spaces.
Nikola Nedeljkovic, General Manager of Belgrade Waterfront, commented: “The continued and successful cooperation with Gradina confirms our long-term commitment to engage with Serbian companies for the construction of facilities within the Belgrade Waterfront. We are pleased to be collaborating with Gradina as it shares our passion of bringing the emphasis back to the city’s rivers, and the creation of exceptional living conditions for all residents.”
BW Galerija will offer outstanding retail facilities with recognisable world brands, various entertainment and dining outlets, a large cinema, and a recreational area to all residents and visitors of the capital. The building was projected by renowned international architecture company RTKL, whose engineers were inspired by existing Belgrade streets.
Djuro Djurdjevic, General Manager of Gradina, said: “It is an outstanding honour to be part of such a great and significant project. We will continue to apply our extensive experience in the construction of BW Galerija, which will open a new chapter in Serbia’s retail sector.”
The unconventional design of BW Galerija, featuring wide windows on the roof stretching along the inner streets and squares, creates a unique sense of outdoor shopping and connection with the surrounding nature.
