    (ANSAmed) - BELGRAD, APRIL 15 - The project known as Belgrade Waterfront ('Beograd na Vodi') in the Serbian capital is taking shape. The grandiose urban project was funded with UAE capital and foresees the building of a futuristic residential complex on one of the banks of the Sava River, with hotels, shopping centers, headquarters of financial companies, modern residential buildings and large green areas for relaxation. In the presence of Serbian prime minister Aleksandar Vucic, Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali and the head of the Eagle Hills financial firm Muhammed Al-Abar, construction work started Friday for the Belgrade Tower, which will be a symbol of the new residential complex. Mayor Mali said that the skyscraper - 168 meters and 45 storeys tall - would be the highest in the Balkans and would represent both Belgrade and a new Serbia moving in the direction of development and modernization. ''In one year, after much of the work has been completed, this part of the city will have a completely different look,'' Mali said, underscoring that a great deal of effort had been put forth by the town council and the central government to attract investment to Belgrade.
