Technical informationEdit

It is 92 meters (307 feet) tall, and it has 25 levels above ground. There is a radio mast on the roof, which increases the height of the tower to 105 meters (350 feet). As of 2007, Cibona Tower is ranked 3rd by height (2nd when you include the antenna[citation needed]) in Croatia.[1]

The tower is a part of the complex that comprises lower business objects, a 5,400-seat basketball hall, and an art installation.

The skyscraper is a cylinder, 25 meters (83 ft) in diameter, which reduces its diameter in four stages, and ends up with a radio mast. The facade is derived in dark steel, totally reflective glass, and black granite. The windows are not fixed. The first stage ends up on the 21st floor, second on the 23rd floor, third on the 24th floor, and the fourth on the 25th floor. The rim of the tower is held by the 26 reinforced concrete pylons, which make it resistant to a 7° Richter scale earthquake, and the impact of a smaller airplane.

HistoryEdit

The tower was built in 1987 because of the Universiade that was held in Zagreb that year. The architect responsible for its design is Marijan Hržić.

The last known occupant of the tower was Agrokor, the biggest food company in Central and Eastern Europe.

As of 2018, the media reported that the tower and its surroundings were in a state of disrepair.[2][3]
