I said that if I bought this place, my budget would not be enough and I left it to the Metropolitan and it remained within the Metropolitan. As a result of researches made a few years ago, 30 years of metal here was tired. These need to be renewed. With the tender methods, the Metropolitan started to work, 3 tenders were made and all of them were cancelled. In the 4th tender, this tender kazanthe company took the GCC to court. The job was not the problem of Balçova or the Metropolitan. The upper court found the 1st tender correct. After 4 years, it turned out that the first tender was done correctly, but the public found us guilty. GCC canceled the tenders, but now the tender kazanThe foundation was laid 2 months ago with the company. In 2014, the company will deliver it to us.
