Decision on the construction of an artificial Island in Batumi
The National Environmental Agency made an environmental decision on the construction of an artificial Island in Batumi.
By the decision of the National Environmental Agency, Ambassadori Batumi Island was given the permission to carry out the coastal defense (shoreline) works of the Black Sea coastline.
According to the screening decision, a protective wall will be built at the project area. The conclusion of the National Environmental Agency states that if the project is implemented, the development of erosive processes in the coastal zone and, accordingly, the risk of damage to the highway, the area adjacent to the sea coast, and to the existing infrastructure will be practically excluded.
Ambassadori Island Batumi will be the largest investment project in the region, which entails the creation of two artificial peninsulas and one island featuring ultra-modern resorts geared toward wellness and recreation in the coastal water zone of the settlements of Bartskhana and Tamari in Batumi, as well as the construction of the relevant infrastructure at the given locations.
On September 29, 2021, an investment agreement was signed between Ambassadori Batumi Island, the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia and the Government of Adjara, for the implementation of this large investment project.
