VRŠAC – On June 12, 2015, the Mayor of Vršac Čedomir Živković, the U.S. Ambassador Michael D. Kirby, and the President of the NALED Managing Board Vladan Atanasijević attended a ceremony to mark the completion of the first phase in the redevelopment of the former “Army Club" Brownfield Site in Vršac.

During the past months, with U.S. Government and NALED support, this abandoned and unused building complex of the former Army Club has begun to be transformed into an inspirational space for the public and entrepreneurs to boost the municipality’s tourist and cultural offerings.

“The United States Government and NALED have chosen to support this project because we believe that renewed public spaces can completely change the landscape of cities and municipalities. Innovatively transformed locations have the potential to become landmarks, generate investments, and open new jobs,” said Ambassador Michael D. Kirby.
