So, today pengovsky posts what he meant to yesterday: an update on the state of construction of the new Ljubljana football stadium. Originally promising to be finished by autumn 2008, mayor Zoran Janković revised the deadline after it transpired that the city (contrary to public statements of Janković’s predecessors) did not own all real-estate needed to build the stadium. When that particular problem was solved, mayor Janković set the new deadline for 30 June 2010. Truth be told, the city still has to buy some property to build the controversial Titova Street which is basically a part of stadium infrastructure, but apparently that is being taken care of.
In the mean time, the project itself took a couple of blows, as Delta retail chain backed out of a 220 million euro deal. It took months to find another partner and finally it was Austrian Supernova who bit the bullet in the end. On June 30th (almost a month ago), with exactly one year to go, mayor Janković organised a tour of the stadium construction site. Everybody and his brother attended, The Firm™ did a piece and today pengovsky posts a gallery of the construction site as it was a month ago.
