The Konopná Residence Company plans to build a new residential complex in the locality of Prievoz in the Ružinov part of the capital. It should be finished by 2020.
The pentagonal shaped area on which they plan to build is currently the location of an administrative building that was built in the 1990’s. It has four floors and is surrounded by family houses and blocks of flats. However, the building does not meet security, technical and hygiene standards and must be removed.
The residential complex will consist of three multifunctional buildings, a garage and connected infrastructure. The multifunctional buildings are divided into seven linked-up sections with five or six over ground floors.
The garage will have a capacity of 171 spaces divided into one underground and one ground-level. It is also expected that parking space for 18 more vehicles should be located around the area.
The actual real estate measures 6,678 square metres with 4,102 of built up area. The total floor space of 17,532 square metres will be divided into 140 residential units, offices and commercial spaces.
Construction work should begin next year and last until 2020. The costs are estimated at 8.8 million euros.

Prices of apartments in Bratislava have increased to their highest level since the crisis, the real estate agency Lexxus has discovered. Based on its latest residential real estate analysis, Slovaks are prepared to pay still more for apartments. This is because they fear further increases in real estate prices as well as the impact of measures taken by the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS). These may worsen accessibility of housing for the middle classes from January.
Although Slovakia has so far been able to attract new investors, in the not so distant future it may have problems with the placement of further investments. The reasons for this are the steadily declining availability of labour, the very slow development of road infrastructure and the lack of readiness of land suitable for the development of industrial parks, according to Martin Varačka, director of the industrial real estate division of the real estate consulting company CBRE in Slovakia.
Foreigners coming to Slovakia to work for the manufacturing industry try to live as economically as possible. They often do not arrive with their families and only work for a short period of time.
The Apollo 1 business centre on Prievozská Street in Bratislava is suffering from stability problems and will be pulled down and replaced with a new development. The demolition should start in March 2018 and be completed by the spring of 2019.

Demolition work is expected to cost about €3.1 million.
