Construction due to start on Batumi Riviera in Batumi, Georgia

Construction is set to begin on Batumi Riviera, a new residential-led, mixed-use development in Batumi, Georgia.

Consisting of six residential and hotel towers, the largest of which will be 42 storeys and 130m high, the seafront project includes a yacht club and new marina, a shopping centre, a casino, outdoor pools and restaurants, a multifunctional hall, a congress centre and a landscaped recreational zone.

Phase one will provide 38,000m² of space in a residential tower, along with 4,500m² of podium-level retail/F&B and an 11,000m² car park holding 315 parking spaces. The green podium will incorporate design references to vine leaves, reflecting the ancient Georgian wine making tradition. The overall development will also include marina facilities for 50 boats and a 19,000m² municipal park for use by all residents of the city.

The project sits in a six-hectare plot of land which will accommodate the buildings and two hectares of landscaped public land. The development will serve as an attractive seaside link between the historical town centre and the port and railway station. The site benefits from its proximity to the popular tourist destinations at the seafront boulevard and the old town.

Batumi Riviera is an important step in establishing the city as a major tourist destination and sailing base on the Black Sea, as part of the wider Silk Road development strategy. Initial investment in phase one of the project is US$65m. The first phase will complete in 2021.

Chapman Taylor's Madrid studio has masterplanned and designed this sustainable scheme on behalf of The Silk Road Group.
