Years ago the area used to be a villa zone and this affects its contemporary infrastructure nowadays. The initial villa construction is from the period of the 60s. At the moment intensive construction works of four/five-storey buildings and single-family houses with modern architecture take place. The projects envisage the building of new gated-typed complexes that offer new standards of living fulfilling all European requirements. There is a great investment interest in this neighbourhood and the infrastructure is expected to be well-developed soon.
The residential buildings in this area comprise mainly large apartments. The neighbourhood distinguishes with fresh air and pleasant park areas. No panel and high-rise buildings.
Maxi - one of the first gated-typed complexes is located in the quarter as well. Maxi is an attractive place for living for families and young people who want to combine the modern way of life with the tranquillity. The mountain is not only a beautiful view from the window but also a place for tourism, ski sport and mountaineering.
