In a short period of time the eastern Slovak town of Prešov has acquired another shopping centre. After the 22,000 m2 Eperia, with more than 100 shops, opened last November, the Solivaria shopping centre, close to the bus station, was ceremonially opened on March 15. Built on the 10,500 m2 site of the former industrial premises of ZPA Křižik, it offers 20 shops and 296 parking places. Its construction cost €20 million, Lýdia Kulíková from the company Prešov Park, informed.
Small, especially one-room, apartments and bed-sits are maintaining the highest prices in Bratislava. The price of two- and three-room apartments has decreased moderately. The interest in family houses and construction parcels is still high while demand exceeds availability.
The new city quarter growing in Bratislava’s Petržalka borough is popular among those looking for new housing. Last year people bought a total of 565 apartments there. This number accounted for more than 11 percent of all new apartments sold in Bratislava in 2017.
It is no surprise that a good working environment can motivate better performance from employees. Thus companies, during this time of qualified labour shortage, are endeavouring to improve the working environment for their employees as much as possible. To reflect this development, the real estate consultancy company CBRE Slovensko organises a competition for the best office. The Profesia company, running the biggest job portal in Slovakia, has won its second year. Among other companies given awards are the IT company Sygic and the business-services organisation EY.
After existing and potential clients showed an eminent interest in central Slovakia, the biggest logistics real estate company in Slovakia, Prologis, began to look for suitable land for the construction of a new industrial park in the desired locality close to Nitra, Banská Bystrica and Zvolen. It found it in Žiar nad Hronom.
