Cetinje greenlit for Lokanda hotel project: A milestone in public-private partnership

Cetinje, the historical capital of Montenegro, has been given the green light by the Investment Agency to move forward with the development of the Lokanda Hotel in the city center. Alongside the hotel, the project encompasses the revitalization of Artists’ Square, also known as Studentski Trg, and the construction of an underground parking facility.

As per the announcement from the municipal authorities, they have secured a favorable assessment from the Investment Agency for the public-private partnership initiative aimed at constructing or renovating the Lokanda Hotel, alongside landscaping the Artists’ Square (Studentski Trg), and erecting a two-level underground parking facility. This marks Cetinje as the pioneer among Montenegrin local administrations in executing a project utilizing the public-private partnership framework.

“The Investment Agency’s endorsement of the project underscores its alignment with both national and local objectives, its meticulous preparation in accordance with the Public-Private Partnership Law, and its adherence to the Regulation on the Justification Analysis of Public-Private Partnerships,” the statement elucidated.
