On Saturday 18th May 2013, we celebrated an exciting milestone here at Luštica Bay; the laying of our very first cornerstone and the official start of construction. At a ceremony officiated by government members and Luštica Bay representatives, we took one step closer to creating an enchanting coastal town set to be the home of healthy, active living in Montenegro.
The moment signifies the first phase of our development, which will see a variety of sustainably built, environmentally sound apartments, townhouses and villas mature around the ancient bay of Trašte. Our project will also feature an 18-hole Gary Player golf course, two bustling marinas, a spa and wellness centre, and a range of high-end boutiques, cafés, restaurants and hotels, all spread over 35km of uninterrupted coastline.
Since our project is a joint initiative between Orascom Development Holding and the Government of Montenegro, our Managing Director, Samuel Meyer, and Orascom CEO, Gerhard Niesslein, were joined by a large number of local media for the event. We also announced that contractors would be Belgian specialists BESIX Group , who won the bid to build our first ten buildings – a collection of apartments around the new marina.
