The construction projects which the Tpilisi Hamkar organisation has asked to have a moratorium placed upon will continue without interruption, according to the managers of the projects themselves. In an open letter addressed to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Culture, the group demanded an immediate suspension of the construction projects at the former IMELI building, Gudiashvili Square, and the Rike Culture Centre, citing concerns over the protection of cultural heritage and disfigurement of the face of the city. In response, a spokesman at the Tbilisi Mayor’s Office has told TV3 that there is no danger of a disfigurement of the city’s appearance whatsoever. According to Zviad Archvadze, contractual responsibilities are being fulfilled, and the projects will continue as planned.
The stir caused by Tpilisi Hamkar has been described as unfounded by the International Trade Chamber spokesman Giorgi Napetvaridze, who states that the renovation of the former IMELI building is being carried out by the Abu Dhabi Group with due consideration for the local population’s wishes, and the city’s appearance will not be disfigured in any way.
