As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, given how much potential this new Zagreb urban living area has to truly become a very large settlement, city district leaders are enthusiastic about turning 30.35 acres of shrubs and vegetation into the perfect place for family life for about 1,500 new residents.
There are three primary schools located nearby the new settlement, the middle one is about ten minutes away on foot, and to the very centre of Dubrava, and thus to shopping centres, banks, post offices and medical facilities, it would take residents a maximum of five or six minutes by car. Although they would have everything they might need in the area’s immediate vicinity, they’d still have the luxury of living in one of the greenest parts of Zagreb, right next to the Cucerska river stream, writes Vecernji list.
This new Zagreb urban living area should be located in an area called Branovecina II. What the new zone bordered by Branovecina street to the east, the edge of the settlement of the same name to the north, the stream to the south and the extended Klin and Rudolf Kolak streets to the west and south will look like has been described in the urban development plan (UPU) adopted by the City Assembly this past summer.
”It will be a quality urban settlement. We also had a public debate and the idea was well received. Everyone likes it, and the owners of the plots in the area of the future settlement can hardly wait for the construction to start. Particularly he road through the settlement, because they’d also build shopping centres there,” said Damir Onisko, president of the Gornja Dubrava District Council. He hopes, he added, that the projects for the extension of Klin street all the way to Lektrscica, as well as Kolakova, will be realised sooner, because in this way, large parts of the Gornja Dubrava and Sesvete districts will be even better interconnected.
”I’m pushing for Klin street to be extended even before the construction of this new Zagreb urban living settlement begins. The road isn’t a prerequisite for the project, but it will certainly help things along,” Onisko pointed out.
What precisely will be built in the new city settlement? Residential and commercial buildings mostly, as well as houses, up to the height of four floors. But here and there, in addition to the main roads, seven-story buildings will be dotted around. In the very centre of the new area, a social facility such as some sort of home, medical facility or church should spring up, and next to it a kindergarten intended for 200 children. Both facilities will be positioned so that they can be reached from any part of the neighbourhood within just five minutes.
