Sava's promenade

The theme of the Project is to explore the possibilities of regulation and use of the segment of the Sava waterfront that belongs to CMSV in order to facilitate its revival.

The preliminary scoping study raised the following issues:

Our starting point was the need to reassess and redefine the basic present-day principles and approaches of waterfront treatment in Belgrade as compared to the current global practices so that the best solutions and most optimal answers in keeping with the contemporary demands are implemented. In order to gain the full understanding of the issues related to the present condition of the waterfront, we studied the character of the hitherto development, planning and use of the subject area. Additionally, we investigated the concepts of future growth and planners’ intents for the Belgrade riverfront. In this context, we carried out analyses of blueprints, the present state and of the set information base as the grounds for the program proposal and designing principles.
At examining program and spatial capacities of the riverfront revitalization, special attention was paid to sustainability issues (economic, social and environmental), efficiency and rationalization of the proposed program and solutions taking into consideration the strategic objectives of the City for the wider metropolitan area. Therefore, the main requirement was that the proposed program and solutions for the revitalization of the subject area should by no means presuppose or influence in any way solutions for strategically important surrounding areas. Consequently, the proposed program and solutions are bounded by the scope of the existing functional and spatial potentials of the site as well as by the legal framework and set goals in which it is possible to achieve maximum performance needed for the revitalization of the waterfront.

With regard to the above, the Project is to be realized in the following stages:

The offered solution is responded to specific characteristics of each zone and it is given a special programmatic package in accordance with the specificity of each zone and their specifically environment, immediate and the wider.
