The developer of the Eurovea 2 project has revealed new details and visuals concerning the construction of its six-building, Bratislava riverfront development, Reality Etrend wrote. Part of the construction will be Slovakia’s first skyscraper, a building over 150 metres high according to the official criteria.
The main part of the development will consist of extending the shopping centre to an area of 84,000 square metres, building an underground parking area with more than 2,200 parking spaces, two buildings providing 40,300 metres of office space, 487 flats contained within a residential tower and a six-screen cinema.
Reality Etrend continued its description, adding that the whole development will extend over 8.5 hectares. The park will be enlarged to 15,000 square metres and the riverfront promenade will cover 2.3 hectares. Three new playgrounds are also planned.
The second phase will harmonise with the look of the existing buildings, gradually edging its way towards the Apollo bridge.
“We plan to construct a high-rise building with 46 floors, close to the bridge,” explains Peter Korbačka, the owner of the development, as quoted by Reality Etrend. With a height of 160 metres it will be the first skyscraper in Slovakia.
Eurovea 2 is divided into separate buildings so that its boundaries flow seamlessly into those of the historical centre and the River Danube. The project will provide Bratislava inhabitants with sport zones, shops, services, work opportunities, playgrounds and a wide range of restaurants with the Riverside promenade extending to the Apollo bridge, Reality Etrend informed.
“Thanks to Eurovea, the riverside of Bratislava came to life several years ago. With the second phase, we are going to support and widen an area that city dwellers enjoy so much,” added Korbačka for Reality Etrend.
