The modern six-level building will be located at the north part of the eastern pier of the port terminal Burgas-East. Except as a scientific-research and control centre for the Black Sea, it will be used throughout the year as a venue for exhibitions, concerts, attractions and various educational events.
The project will continue to implement the concept set out in the Master Plan of the city of Burgas, in the direction of the city opening to the sea, removal of industrial activities and restructuring of coastal industrial zones. It is also foreseen the possibility of creating a modern yacht port and a secondary urban servicing centre with landscaping.
