Reconstruction of the train station and introduction of Origo has played an important role in the improvement of spatial quality and functionality of the city center in general. The station and shopping center is now surrounded by newly built hotels and prosperous business centers. Future plans envisage the development of a multifunctional complex consisting of offices and a shopping center alongside Origo. The projected total floor space is 43 000 m2, of which 17 000 m2 is intended for retail and restaurants (1st-3rd level), 9 500 m2 for offices (4th-6th level), and 8 200 m2 for basement, including an underground parking lot for 150 cars. The complex is designed as energy efficient building in line with internationally recognised sustainability standards – BREEAM (British Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), aiming to obtain one of the highest assessment levels, i.e., Very Good.
