Koper also offers university faculties and colleges of higher education (Faculty of Mathematics, Science and Information Technology, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Management, etc.).
A bus stop right next to the development makes it easy to reach Koper city centre.

A total of 166 apartments are available for purchase, i.e. all the apartments owned by DUTB d.d. with the exception of two show apartments that are not currently for sale. In the second phase of the sale process, additional storage/multipurpose spaces, most of which are located on the garage levels, are also offered for sale.
2. How will the sale of apartments proceed?
From 11 February 2017, 166 apartments with their associated parking spaces and storage spaces will be offered for sale in the traditional way – the first buyer to conclude a contract of sale for an individual apartment and meet all contractual liabilities becomes the owner of the apartment. The prices of the apartments are set in advance and are not open to negotiation.
Potential buyers wishing to view the apartments are invited to book a viewing in advance by phoning the free telephone number 080 81 18 or sending an email to email@example.com.

Parking spaces are located on the garage levels beneath each segment (ABC, DE and F). There are 541 parking spaces in total, of which 478 are privately owned and 63 are reserved for visitors. Every apartment comes with two parking spaces of its own. All parking spaces belonging to apartments are assigned in advance. The majority of the parking spaces are on the three garage levels. Access to them is by lift from the individual nucleus (entrance). There are also 18 external parking spaces: 8
belonging to residents and 10 reserved for visitors.
2. Can I sell my apartment immediately after buying it? Can I sell the storage space and/or parking space bearing my ID code if I don't need them?
Decisions on the subsequent sale of all purchased property are made by the owners or buyers themselves. DUTB d.d. places no restrictions on subsequent sale.
3. Judging from the commercial sketch, the apartment comes with two parking spaces in the garage. Do I have to take both of them even if I only need one?
Under the General Conditions of Sale, every apartment comes with a storage space (some come with two) and two garage parking spaces. This means that it is not possible to purchase just one parking space. The new owner can, however, sell the parking space at a later date if it is not needed, since each parking space is identified by its own ID code.
4. Is it possible to swap parking spaces?
Under the General Conditions of Sale, the ID codes of the parking spaces that belong to an individual apartment are determined in advance. This means that swapping parking spaces is not possible.

The development has three boiler rooms (using liquefied petroleum gas from Sermin) to provide the apartments and business units with heating water.

Shared costs relating to communal areas are calculated by the administrator.
2. Will DUTB d.d. as the owner of the unsold apartments pay a proportionate share of the administration and maintenance costs and other shared costs (electricity in communal areas, cleaning of communal areas, etc.)?
Just like the other owners of individual units, DUTB d.d. will pay all administration and maintenance costs for the unsold apartments and other shared costs in proportion to its co-ownership share.
