October 30, 2020 – A building permit has been approved for a Znjan hotel, bringing new tourism to the Split neighborhood.
Slobodna Dalmacija reports that the company “Split Peninsula Properties” from Zagreb received a building permit to construct a catering and tourist facility on undeveloped plots in the Znjan area of Split.
This building permit allows for the construction of 156 accommodation units located on five floors with a superstructure boasting 110 parking spaces.
It covers an area of about seven thousand square meters between Šetališta Ivana Pavla II and the Znjan Road, which is now covered with high vegetation.
The mentioned investor company, “Split Peninsula Properties,” is registered as a micro-entrepreneur, with one founder – Andrija Antić.
According to the Court Register, the company was founded at the end of 2018, has a share capital of HRK 20,000, and in that year, had a loss of HRK 304,345.
The architects created the conceptual design in 2018 for 170 accommodation units, but the request for a location permit was submitted for 156, covered by the building permit.
According to the information from the “Condo hotel center” page, which advertises this new hotel, it will be a four-plus hotel with a casino, spa and wellness center, rooftop lounge bar, and 24-hour room service. They say that the apartments will range from 328 to 667 square meters, with prices ranging from 216 to 263 and a half thousand dollars.
Supposedly, the hotel’s management would be taken over by a big brand, but they would not buy the building, and different owners would buy the apartments. A contract would be reached with them according to which they would use their real estate 14 days a year, and their services would be charged at the minimum price, while the rest of the time, the hotel house would rent their apartments so that the owners would get a refund.
As for greenery, the hotel should preserve some vegetation on the west side and valuable pine trees, if any. The architects created new greenery around the hotel in the simulation, but in them, the entire Znjan plateau all the way to the promenade along the coast is green – and they drew only grass and trees, without cafes and sports fields. According to the Detailed Development Plan, such radical landscaping is not a bad idea, but it is not possible.
