Zagreb construction company “Technique” reported on Tuesday that an agreement was concluded on conducting the works on the construction of reinforced concrete structure, the overhead part of the hotel building with accompanying facilities of “Westgate Tower Split”. Workers of that company were involved in the raising of the southern skyscrapers along the intersection of Ulica Domovinskog rata and Puta Stinica where a month ago the headquarters of Societe Generale Split bank was open.
As we found out, the project is funded by the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the total investment amounts to about 65 million euros.

It will have six underground floors, ground floor and 27 floors with a total area of 35,000 square meters. The project has a mixed use and hotel part of the building will have 189 rooms, four suites, spa, fitness center, conference center, restaurants and bars”, said Josip Komar, the first man of “Westgate Tower Split” and added that, as is already known, the hotel will be a part of one of the world’s largest hotel chains, of which the public will be subsequently informed, and this will certainly contribute to the competitiveness and expansion tourism in the city.
