As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 27th of August, 2020, there has been talk circulating for a long time about the construction of a new southern entrance to Zagreb. To be more precise, talks have been going on for more than a decade now. Is the long-anticipated Buzin City Island about to come to fruition?

Various rumours and options have appeared in public, but the attractive piece of land in Buzinske krce, along the main road connecting the Croatian capital city of Zagreb with Velika Gorica and Franjo Tudjman International Airport, remained untouched. And then recently, large excavators arrived on the meadow. This is the announcement of the beginning of the realisation of one of the largest investments in Croatia – Buzin City Island. The business settlement on eighty thousand square metres of land, with 250,000 m2 of office space, will be realised in five phases, and the entire project is worth two billion kuna, as reported by Vecernji list.

When the works are completed, the southern entrance to the capital will become Buzin City Island and, as was revealed by project manager Marijo Tomic, it will have “all of the facilities needed by a working man during and outside his working hours”. The investor of this project is the company City Island d.o.o. based in Rugvica, and the main designer is the Split company MIG arhitekti. The main contractor is KFK, a regional leader in the production of aluminum-glass facades. The same company is currently working on seven major projects in the United Kingdom and some in the United States. The Buzin City Island project will be built in five phases, explained Tomic.

”It isn’t being built classically, several different buildings will be built, and in several phases. The deadline for the completion of the first phase is 24 months. The construction site is divided into two plots, zone A and zone B, and we will build about twenty business buildings,” Tomic stated, adding that in the first phase, which is still only just beginning, the construction of envelopes of various business premises is planned. In the first phase, they will build a hotel with 200 rooms and a congress centre, as well as three business buildings in which multifunctional halls and a studio will be located.
