Even though a key private investor has withdrawn from the Emonika project, Ljubljana will have a new train and bus passenger terminal by 2020, Slovenske Železnice CEO Dušan Mes said. The Emonika project was supposed to include a new bus and railway station, as well as a business and residential complex in the Centre District of Ljubljana.
The public investors – the city of Ljubljana, the state and Slovenske Železnice – could build the transport terminal on their own, Dušan Mes explained. The bus and passenger train terminal has been estimated to cost around 100 million euros.
Private investor Mas Real Estate, which has withdrawn from the project, and Prime Kapital had set up a special company to build the commercial part of the Emonika project – a 100-metre tower building, a hotel and an office building as well as a two-storey shopping centre. According to Dušan Mes, private investors could still join the project later on.
