The Belgrade authorities are still planning to build an underground garage next to the National Library. The project is again displayed for public perusal at the building housing the City Administration.
The talks about building this garage started back in 2006 when the National Library voiced its concern about the possible damage the construction might do to their depots. However, since then the Library has changed its opinion and is planning to extend its underground capacities too.
The underground garage will be built right next to the library, and the entrance will be from Skerlićeva Street near the intersection with Braničevska. The exit will be closer to Nebojšina Street, at the house of sculptor Djordje Jovanović. The garage will have three and a half levels, 351 parking spaces, 20 for people with disabilities, lift, and a public toilet.
“The garage, according to the project, will be located on the plot where the National Library doesn’t have a depot, so there will be no damage done,” says Dragan Glišić, head of the Library’s Finance, Legal and General Affairs Department and adds:”I believe that all the procedures will be followed during the construction, and they are followed, there will be no problem”
Glišić also states that the library itself will expand to include an additional 6,500 square metres.
