Construction of Zagreb’s Tallest Skyscraper Completed

NIConstruction of the tallest building in Croatia’s capital Zagreb has now finished…

Around 900 workers have taken just 26 months to complete the 100 million euros dual office-residential building on Strojarksa street near downtown Zagreb. The 96.15 metre tall, 25-level building is the design of architect Davor Mateković. Local capital is mainly behind the new building which is the biggest project built in Croatia in the last two years.

“Construction lasted two years and two months, most of the apartments have already been rented out, and we are now negotiating the rental of office space in the building,” said investor Antun Mikec.

Next to the skyscraper there is a smaller 13-level building . There is space for 850 cars at the complex, and also an aerobics centre, swimming pool, conference rooms and rooms for birthdays and celebrations. The new tower now overtakes the Zagrepčanka building on Savska street which was previously the tallest at 94.6 meters.
