New Train Station in Ljubljana, by End of 2010

Speaking of trains…

Ground was broken last month on the Emonika project, a complex that will include among other things, a new railway station for Slovenia’s capital.

The two phase project, with a total price tag that ranges from 220 to 300 million euros, includes a new bus station, shopping and entertainment center set for completion by the end of 2009. The train station, a new high rise business center, luxury apartments and four-star hotel, is to be completed by the end of 2010.

Designers say the project will provide a bridge to connect two areas of Ljubljana that have been historically separated by the tracks, resulting in a more cohesive city center. I could do without the shopping mall, but overall I like the concept.

The project’s website, which includes a nice photo gallery, is here.

    Just over two years have passed since this was posted, and there has been little to no progress. The project isn’t officially dead; it only appears that way.
