Construction of a park in the area of the northern Delta, construction of residential, business and other facilities in the southern part that owing to their appearance and quality as public areas will give a new identity to the city and construction of a marina in the Baroš port.

Project significance

By relocating the activities from Delta and Porto Baroš to other locations, the spatial and location potential of this area is channelled toward the creation of a new and recognisable part of the city centre which will, with its facilities, appearance and quality become a public place and bearer of the new identity of the city – one that actively coexists with the city, its citizens with the sea, while also exceeding local limits and positioning Rijeka as an example of the successful transformation of Mediterranean port cities.


To achieve the aforementioned goals, the possibility for the construction of around 200,000 m² gross developed area of new buildings was opened in the South Delta alone, with additional 50,000 m² within the Baroš Marina.
