August 27, 2019 – The new Westgate Tower B in Split, which will eventually house the Marriott hotel and stand as Croatia’s tallest building, should be completed by 2020. 

After the works were temporarily suspended, the construction of the Westgate Tower B in Split continues with full steam. Currently, the workers have covered up to the 23rd floor, and are working on the structure of the 24th floor. This skyscraper, which should be called “Dalmatia”, will have 27 floors in total that reach 115 meters above sea level. This will make it the tallest building in Croatia, reports Dalmacija Danas.

While the adjoining, smaller tower became home to OTP Bank, its taller brother will host the first Marriott hotel in Croatia, featuring a total of 200 luxury rooms. This hotel will be located between the 16th and 26th floors, and on the top floor, there will be a “Sky bar” with the most magnificent views of Split and its surroundings. It will be the fifth hotel from this luxury hotel chain in Croatia, though it will be the first “Courtyard by Marriott” in Croatia which is recognized worldwide as an ideal accommodation for business travel.

According to reliable sources, the concrete part of the works will be completed in a month and a half to two months, and the new skyscraper will open in 2020. The installation of glass panels in the lower part of the tower has already begun, and it’s slowing beginning to look similar to the neighboring structure. 

Recall, at a recent public auction, a large plot of land that used to house the failed Mils Split dairy in the area was bought by Ivan Miloloža, owner of the real estate company “Jedina nekretnina”, and speculation has already begun on what will be built on that land.

Either way, the Westgate Towers have significantly altered the skyline in this part of Split. What the view will be once the taller tower is completed remains to be seen.
