After failing to make a new investment on the site of the war-torn Belvedere Hotel for eight years, it seems that Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg is a little tired and that he could sell Belvedere to a new investor, writes Novac.hr. These days, investors from the USA visited Mayor Mato Franković because they are interested in opening a five-star hotel in Dubrovnik, ie renovating the old Belvedere, a complex for which Vekselberg had plans to demolish in order to build a new but more luxurious hotel in its place. of the architectural office of 3LHD. As Jutarnja has learned from unofficial sources, potential American investors have reportedly not started negotiations with the owner of Belvedere, Viktor Vekselberg, and they find out that, apart from the Americans, French and domestic investors are also interested in the project. Their source claims that the American delegation wants to get acquainted with the complete spatial-planning situation of the project, ie to get information from the city administration about the types of interventions that could be done in the area of that hotel. “They arrived with visuals of reconstruction and studies, but first they wanted to see how the project stands spatially – planned, that is, to check what can be done within the area. They are interested in the reconstruction of the existing project, in the existing dimensions, and the advantage is that there are construction and use permits for the project, while investors should obtain a permit for reconstruction.”, Said Franković, who believes that the reconstruction of Belvedere is realistic. As Mayor Mato Franković told Jutarnji list, he was visited on Thursday by a delegation from a renowned American hotel chain, which is interested in renovating the Belvedere.
