Emonika, also named Emonika City Centre or Ljubljana Emonika Passenger Centre (Slovene: Potniški center Ljubljana Emonika), was a multipurpose building complex that was been planned to be built by the company TriGranit in the centre of Ljubljana, at Ljubljana railway station.[1] It would be a combination of an office building, shopping and entertainment centre, hotel and congress centre, and a residential complex. It would include a new bus and railway station and a new passenger hall. First old buildings were removed in 2008 in order to prepare space for construction, which was planned to begin in spring 2012 and finish in two years.[2]

In September 2012, TriGranit withdrew its construction permit request, filled in June 2012, after failing to acquire some of the necessary land within relevant deadlines. According to Zoran Janković, the Mayor of Ljubljana, the company had invested already 30 million euros in the project.[3] TriGranit later stated it had not withdrawn from the project.[4]

After the government of Slovenia refused to subsidy the investment in July 2014, TriGranit pulled out of the contract with the Slovenian Railways.[5] The railway company decided to press charges against it, however the construction of the complex has been postponed indefinitely.[6]
