Bulgaria Turns Obsolete Steel Mill Area into Museum

Date: 15.06.2010

Parts of the walls of a historic building from the 17th century will be moved to the Sofia suburb of Kremikovtzi to be displayed there, the Chief Architect of the Bulgarian capital, Petar Dikov, informs.

The old walls have been recently discovered during excavations for the construction of the metro route in downtown Sofia.

Dikov says the Kremikovtzi area, which is the location of the now closed communist era behemoth – the steel mill with the same name, will be turned into a modern residential and office area. The project will start only after the conclusion of the mill's liquidation, but the Chief Architect believes there will be many candidates interested in the company's assets over the attractive terrain, the current prices of metal and of the USD, and the one feasible production of the mill – scrap.

The new owners of the terrain will have to coordinate their development projects with the City Hall over restrictions imposed by Sofia's urban plan, Dikov points out, adding even the production of scrap will remain only under the condition it is environmentally safe.

The City Hall also plans to create a park, and afforest the area with financing from the Agriculture Fund to prevent possible floods to which the terrain is prone.
