What has changed in the Kalaubani district several years after its regeneration? The Tbilisi Mayor’s Office began the regeneration of the area in 2009, as part of the ‘New Life for Old Tbilisi’ project. Renovation and regeneration works are still ongoing in Kalaubani. The oldest buildings have been roofed with iron and tiles. Water supply and sewage, as well as the drainage system, have been completely replaced. Street lighting has been installed. Some of the local residents have told TV3 that Kalaubani has become one of Tbilisi’s most prestigious areas following the regeneration. However, certain problems have arisen, such as the loud music emanating during late hours from the restaurants that have opened in the area. According to one of the residents, property prices have increased substantially following the regeneration, and the number of tourists visiting the area has gone up as well.
Several dozens of new businesses have sprung up in Kalaubani following its regeneration. Chateau Mukhrani’s ‘Wine Studio’ has been operating in the district for 3 years. The Chateau Mukhrani Customer Relations Manager has told TV3 that the regeneration of Kalaubani has positively affected the business, with tourists frequently visiting the ‘wine studio.’
In contrast to Chateau Mukhrani, the Spanish restaurant BCN Hispania has only been operating in Kalaubani for a short period of time. According to a representative, business has been normal, and the majority of the customers are tourists. He adds that the regeneration of Kalaubani has had a huge impact on the restaurant business in the district.
