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.

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.
The developer Merius has brushed up its Semiramis Residence project which it plans to build in front of the Nové Mesto railway station and opposite Kuchajda lake in Bratislava. Its first attempt three years before failed as the local council did not grant it construction permission. The re-worked project with a price tag of €47 million is now undergoing an environmental impact assessment (EIA).
