There is no doubt that Split in 2017 will be a large hotel construction site. Now a true brand destination, Split must further develop its tourist offer year after year – and with an increasing number of private renters and hotel accommodations (which will grow significantly), Split should definitely not miss a bed for every budget.
In addition to the existing construction sites, which this year should draw closer to an end, there are a number of new sites that have already began or that will begin soon. Here are the potential new projects, projects already in full swing, and everything you need to know about the future in accommodation for Split, as reported by Slobodna Dalmacija on 13 December 2016.
Public attention has long been directed at the “Brodomerkur” building on Poljicka, which, along with the University of Split, is rumored to have drawn potential interest from Singapore. The idea would be to construct the already large space into the largest hostel in Croatia. Slobodna Dalmacija tried to receive comments from the CEO of “Brodomerkur” Ivica Kozul, in which he only briefly replied that the building still was not sold to anyone.
Another desirable building will surely be the administrative building of Splitska Banka in Krstarica which will soon be, just like the rest of the property of the bank, emptied with the intention of being sold. While Splitska Banka was reluctant to comment, they did state that this property is yet to have sold.
However, what is certain is that in Split, at least 17 hotels are currently being built or will soon be built, which is stated by the data from the Administrative Department for Physical Planning and Construction of the City of Split.
Building permits have been issued for the construction of the hotel “Mijama 2” on Medulićeva street 2 which is located within the palace next to the hotel “Vestibule”. The work engages namesake company “Mijama 2”, whose co-owners are based in Switzerland along with domestic investor Marija Fabijanac.
All is clear and clean on the issues of licenses for hotel “Central” and the extension of the “Cornaro” hotel which will be extended to the former main post office.
The company “Veneficus” is behind a hotel that is being built in an attractive location, immediately above the beach, and according to the ideas of Split architect Srdjan Šegvića. The hotel should have four stars and a total of eight floors, boasting about 7,300 square meters and underground parking. The hotel should also have 48 luxury rooms, a restaurant, lounge bar, wine bar, congress hall, spa-center, fitness, and more.
In the neighborhood nearby, the company “Špinut” doo has the license for the realization of the hotel with Villa Rosina, and the company “Onyx” doo should be building a hotel just behind Villa Rosina. Josip Komar, behind the latter project, also stands behind the project at Westgate and is currently obtaining building permits for the land of the hotel that is estimated at 4.8 million kuna. Villa Rosina was bought, in turn, by the owner of “Tommy” Tomislav Mamic, with the intention to make a luxury hotel with eighty rooms.
The construction of the hotel on Vukovarska Street by investors “Neoplazma” doo should have a total capacity of twenty rooms. The hotel will have three stars, although investors claim that the service will be at a higher level, and will consist of a basement, ground floor and three floors. The basement is intended for wellness facilities, and the ground floor for the reception and restaurant.
Varos will get a new tourist “flagship” for the company “Expletus” doo who is behind a project on Kamenita and lastly, Jure Pejković should build Aparthotel at Put Radoševca. Pejković does have the executive building permits, which, however, are not final as they have been disputed.
