Constanta -project and construction

Constanta (Constantza) is a romanian city with a population of 320.000 inhabitants within the city and almost 400.000 with the suburbs.
Second largest city in Romania both by population and development after Bucharest, Constanta city tends to become a major transition hub between Asia and Europe due to its terminus position on major European Corridors:
- IV -highway/rail
-VII -Danube river
Constanta is connected with the Danube river by the Danube-Black Sea Canal (third in the world after Suez and Panama). Due to the canal the Port of Constanta (largest at the Black Sea and 4th in Europe) has both maritime and river infrastructure.
On a radius of 30 km there are 2 airports: Constanta International Airport (CND) and Tuzla Airport (small, air-sports oriented airport).
The major infrastruture projects under development are the completion of A2 Highway (part of C IV)-summer of 2013 and the A4 -Constanta Ring Higway -May 2012.
The most famous neighborhood is Mamaia Beach. This summer resort is a magnet for romanian and foreign tourists. Due to its nightclubs, international concerts, festivals (like Fashion TV Summer Festival) Mamaia (also called Ibiza of the east) is visited by over 1.000.000 tourists each year.
After Romania entered the EU, Constanta has become an important point on the cruise ships routes.
Constanta is the oldest inhabited city on the Romanian teritory with a history of over 2.600 years, and it was founded by the greek colonists from Milet under the name of Tomis.
The city is capital of Dobrudja region, a region with almost 1.000.000 inhabitants, and an economy based on: oil (extraction and refining), wind energy (the new eldorado for wind energy investors with ongoing projects over 3 billion euros), nuclear energy, agriculture, wine industry, food industry, building materials, tourism, shipbuilding.
Through Constanta Port 75% of the romanian imports/exports take place.
Constanta, same as Dobrudja is an example of both ethnic (romanians, rroma, greek, italian, turkish, tatars, russians, chinese etc) and religious (christians, muslims, hebrew etc) coexistence for hundred of years witout any ethnic or religious conflict.
After this brief introduction, i'll present below the major on-going and proposed projects.

Thank you
A couple of days ago they started work at a midrise residential project.
It's situated on the seawall near Modern Beach and Tomis Yacht Marina.
With direct acces to the future Riviera Avenue (4 lanes coastal avenue - to be completed in the autumn of 2012), the project consists in:
-2 x UG+GF+16FL
-2 x UG+GF+14FL
-1 x UG+GF+12FL
-1 x UG+GF+10FL (hotel, spa)
Due to the fact that between the hotel and the rest of the buildings will be the avenue there will be bulid a pedestrian overpass.

The project is developed by Fincogero Spa Catania

Today i want to present you the largest romanian project ever build.
The Danube-Black Sea Canal.
This man made canal shortens the distance between the Danube and the Black Sea with 300km and aling with the Danube and Danube-Main-Rin Canal creates a paneuropean navigation corridor.
The D-BS Canal also has the role of cooling the Cernavoda Nuclear reactors 1,2 and 3.
The presence of this canal has helped the development of Constanta.
The Port of Constanta was build under king Carol 1 by the romanian engineer Anghel Saligny (wikipedia info about him). In the communist era the port knows a large scale development and becomes the largest at the Black Sea, the 4th in Europe and the 7th in the world.
After the fall of communism the port knows a dark period untill 2000.
After 2000 Constanta Port reclaimes his part as a junction between Asia and Europe and both local (like GSP, SNC, Oil Terminal, Rompetrol, Chimpex) and foreign investors (Dubai World Ports, WDP, etc) started new investments in the port. Dubai World Ports build the largest Black Sea Container Terminal.

In Constanta, this end of the year is in a total oposition with Romania's economy hard hitted by the crisis.
So until december we have a lot of new retail openings: Lidl number 4, Billa number 2, the first Decathlon (the competition is already here: 2 Intersport and one Hervis); also Carrefour announced the opening of 6 Carrefour Market this year.
For the next year there are expected to be completed: KIKA, Hornbach and Corall Mall (with Cora as a major tenant-it will be the 6th mall in the city).

Also the european funds arrived and they started work on major projects: the reconstruction of the seaside prommenade in the old city, the reconstruction of the streets in the old city after the interwar model, the new seaside prommenade in Mamaia Resort and 3 custom made pedestrian overpasees also in Mamaia Resort.

Also Hilton obtained the building permit for a 9 storeys hotel in Tomis Marina, and Neocity group obtained the bulding permit for the extention of City Park Mall:multistorey car park, a new wing for the mall, a cinema, an office building and two 24 storeys towers.

But today i'll give you an update from "Henri Coanda" (wikipedia) Social Campus. While in other cities like Baia Mare they coose to separate the poor and homelesses that live in delapidate commies with concrete walls, here in Constanta we have a largescale social housing project (10.000.000 euro) and now there are u.c. 34 social housing apartment buildings gf+2fl. The units will be finished 17 in 2013 and 17 by the end of 2014.
Pictures from last week when the first 8 buildings were finished. The campus will also have a community center, a police precint, a medical center and of course a supermarket. There are 3 categories of residents:

-cat1: very old or with disabilities that won't pay rent
-cat2: very poor people that will pay only the utilities
-cat3: poor people that will pay a minimum rent 20 to 30 euro/month
