The U.S. Department of State is proud to announce the construction of a new campus for the U.S. Embassy in Podgorica, Montenegro.
On September 20, 2021, Ambassador Judy Rising Reinke Reinke, Mayor Ivan Vuković, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs State Secretary Ljubomir Misurovic signed a stone which will be placed in the foundation of our new Embassy building.
The U.S. Government will invest $296 million in the construction of the new Embassy campus, with a target completion date of 2025.
The new chancery, support facilities, and amenities will be integrated into the overall site to ensure sustainable design, construction, and operations that represent the best of U.S. architecture, engineering, and construction execution. The design places a high emphasis on respecting local culture and preserving and responding to the local environmental context.
A concrete, lasting symbol of the United States’ commitment to Montenegro, the new chancery, support facilities, and amenities will enable the continuation and expansion of the Embassy’s important bilateral work.
