The first step to establish the residential and commercial center had been taken with the cooperation protocol signed between the directorates of foundations of Turkey and Islamic Community of Bosnia Herzegovina on Dec. 25, 2015.
The trade center - intended to serve as an important commercial area for the people of Sarajevo -was built on an area of 12,000 square meters (nearly 130,000 square feet) and has been completed in August 2018.
Meanwhile, the Sarajevo Islamic Union Student Dormitory, which has been completed in two years aiming to provide a better environment for students, will also be inaugurated.
The building consists of 59 rooms to host 202 students and includes a kitchen, study room, hobby room and a basketball court.
