Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze announced at the government session of the capital that the municipal spaces on Gudiashvili Square are to be sold by auction.
“Gudiashvili Square is completely in order today. The second stage of work is underway, where 16 houses have been added and their rehabilitation works are being carried out. The first part, where we have completed rehabilitation, needs an owner who will take care of it, use it in the right way. Of course, one thing is the beauty, the importance of these monuments, but, it has another side – an economic side, as well,” Kaladze said.
The mayor noted that the business sector will be given the opportunity to use these spaces, which are municipal property.
“We will prepare the documentation to put these spaces up for auction and sell them to the business sector so that all of them can be used properly later, however, in parallel with this process, the Tbilisi City Hall will be involved so that Gudiashvili Square is properly developed and we do not accept cafes and bars that may not be acceptable to the city and pose problems,” Kaladze said.
