Construction of the Solivaria Shopping Park in Prešov has finally started after years of preparations and delays. The retail zone near to the bus and train station will offer 10,500 square metres of shopping area in the first phase, Trend Reality wrote.
The idea of a shopping centre in Prešov has been circulating for ten years but the crisis came and the project has been frozen for some time. Revival came one year ago when the ProjectConsulting company introduced new visualisations and preparation work.
“We are currently working on the first phase of construction,” stated Justína Janošková from ProjectConsulting, as quoted by Trend Reality.
The opening of the shopping centre could take place in the end of this year.
“The opening is planned for the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018,” said J. Janošková, as quoted by Trend Reality.
The new project should include a coffee shop at the chimney. Brands like dm drogerie, Kik, Planeo elektro, Orion, Mountfield, Pet Shop, Mango and Springfield will become part of Solivaria. Food stores will include the supermarket, Fresh, with an area of 1,250 square metres, Trend Reality informed.
Solivaria Shopping Park is not the only shopping zone under preparation in Prešov. In November, the Eperia Shopping Mall should open, which will offer 22,000 square metres of shopping space. In the centre permits are being arranged by the retailer, Forum, Trend Reality stated.
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.
The developer YIT Slovakia has launched the sale of apartments in the second building of the fifth, last, phase of the Tammi Dúbravka development. The new block of apartments will provide 42 apartments. It will be connected to the second building of the fifth phase with a community park. The sale of apartments in the first building was launched in September 2017.
The first weeks of 2018 indicate that the high interest in new warehouses in Slovakia is continuing. Developers are responding to the demand with the preparation of expansion phases for their successful projects as well as plans for new industrial premises and parks. The latter may start during the first half of 2018 and so developers would be able to offer new spaces in late 2018.
