The first Macedonian five-star-luxury hotel according to international standards will be constructed at the main square of Skopje. When we designed and planned it, we attached great importance to both the modern technical and ecological needs of our time and to the history of a city with a rich tradition. In accordance with a national team of experts and the city council, the square that is still marked by the earthquake of 1963 shall contribute to strengthening the identity of the inhabitants. Therefore, the building exterior reflects elements of the destroyed architecture and becomes part of a harmonic square ensemble. Marriott has been contracted as the hotel’s operator. The modern interior design of the building will set new standards worldwide. Construction began in April 2011 and was finished in February 2013.
