Every month means a new project. Jasná and its surroundings are among the most sought after localities for development. Now another addition, the Urbár Demänová project is in the pipeline with plans to build a residential and multifunctional compound near the car park, Reality Trend informed.
The compound, under Demänovská hill, will be divided into two localities. The first should arise near the road from Demänová to the Jasná ski resort, to the south of the car park. The second area will be situated on the estates above the car park, Reality Trend wrote.
The area under the hill will provide living areas and services. Its central point will be a multifunctional building with services on the ground floor. The investor intends that these should include a coffee shop, a ski equipment shop and an information centre. In total, the building should cover 951 square metres. The second floor will consist of eight maisonettes, Reality Trend stated.
In addition to the facilities of the locality, a craft courtyard consisting of three smaller buildings will be situated along the tourist route. Each one will have an area of 63 square metres and they will form a space for craft displays, galleries and creative workshops, Reality Trend informed.
The second locality will consist of 20, three-bedroom cottages. Each one will have an area of 75 square metres. A dominant feature here will be a 12 metres tall bell tower built in the traditional style, Reality Trend wrote.
The proposer of this project wants to start construction works in September. The whole compound should be finished before the summer of 2019. The costs are estimated at about two million euros, Reality Trend stated.
However, this project is not the only one. In Jasná and its surroundings, two dozen different investors and companies have works in progress. Big plans have been announced by the Tatry Mountain Resorts company which plans to build a new centre in Jasná and the Damian Jasná company are planning the construction of a Five-star resort, Reality Trend informed.
Moreover, the town of Jasná is expressing support for the accommodation capacity development, Reality Trend wrote.
“We estimate that from 800 to 1,000 new beds will be added and the town areas of Repiská, Lúčky and the centre of Jasná should go through urbanization,” said the mayor of Demänovská valley village, Ľubomíra Klepáčová, as quoted by Reality Trend.

Slovaks are increasingly interested in recreational real estate. The demand has increased by 20 percent over the last year. The most wanted properties are cottages near Michalovce in eastern Slovakia.
Healthy offices providing a sustainable environment in terms of energy, as well as their surroundings, are a world trend that has not skipped Slovakia. There are a number of buildings that have already received or are applying for the world-renowned LEED, BREEAM, WELL or Fitwell certifications. One of them is the Einpark office building in Petržalka, which – as the first in Slovakia – has successfully completed LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) pre-certification to the highest degree, Platinum.
The abandoned building of the former Lamač department store in Bratislava’s borough of the same name will return to life. The new owner, the investment group Dynastion, will revitalise it into the Karpatia centre. Apart from shops, it will house co-working offices and provide space for a youth community centre. The complex revitalisation of the building should start this autumn.
US real estate investment fund Heitman sold the Aupark Tower office building in Bratislava to the real estate fund of the investment bank Wood & Company in early June. The consultancy company CBRE, which mediated the deal, describes the transaction as the biggest on the Slovak office real-estate market for seven years. The price, however, was not disclosed.
While Bratislava already accommodates almost 30 shopping centres, another one is on the horizon. Macho Consulting, a company that has been devoted especially to residential projects in the past, will build Matrix Mall in the more or less industrial zone of Bratislava in the borough of Nové Mesto. The shopping centre on the corner of Magnetova and Vajnorská streets, close to the Vozovňa Nové Mesto depot, will offer retail and office space.
Trnava-based tycoon Vladimír Poór has sold the recently opened City Arena shopping centre in Trnava to Peter Korbačka, the head of the board of directors of the developer J&T Real Estate. The latter already owns the Eurovea shopping centre in Bratislava. Neither the price nor other details of the transaction have been disclosed.
