The project is currently in the process of conceptual solution drafting.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 20th of October, 2018, the so-called ”youngest” town in Croatia, the town of Otok, is intensively working on the preparations of a project worth approximately three million euro, which will benefit not only the inhabitants of Otok, but also areas in the immediate vicinity and those a little bit further away, meaning that about 20,000 people are set to benefit.

As Glas Slavonije writes, the project in the works is a shopping centre within which an open and closed market could also be opened, which, according to Otok’s mayor Josip Šarić, is both a large and important project offering contents that are currently missing in and around Otok at this moment in time.

”The project is in the process of drafting a conceptual solution as well as the preparation of a location near the centre of town,” Mayor Šarić stated, adding that the future shopping centre would be constructed on land covering about 8.500 square metres, currently under the ownership of the church located there.

”The position is very good and it will be the [main] shopping centre for of this part of Vukovar-Srijem County,” said Šarić, explaining that it will be located in place in which, for example, OPGs can sell their products on the market, or buy from Otok what currently isn’t available there, this will also greatly benefit the citizens of not only Otok but of neighbouring settlements.

The estimated value of the Otok shopping centre and market project currently stands at about three million euros.
