The new project currently going on in Korcula Town is the construction of Parking and Business Centre “Potok”. Covering a total floor area of approximately12000 m2 over 3 levels, the Centre will have 288 parking places, a shopping center (run by Tommy d.o.o. from Split), a restaurant, and a cafe bar. The Centre, providing 40-60 new jobs, is expected to be completed and fully functional by May 2012.
The project is financed by Korcula municipality and Tommy d.o.o. from Split
