Developer transforms former wine-making plant into a new centre for Bratislava’s Borough of Rača

The developer, belonging to the Bencont Group has already started pulling down the buildings and cleaning the three-hectare area.

 

We believe that Rínok Rača, which we will begin to construct soon, will be the new centre of the borough and will naturally fit into the life of its citizens,” said Martin Šimurda, representative of the developer Rínok Rača, as cited in the press report.

 

The Rínok Rača development will consist of six blocks of flats, three buildings with mixed usage combing housing and civic amenities, five areas of civic amenities including a shopping passage and three underground garages with 822 parking places. In total there should be 473 apartments for about 850 people.

 

The developer has incorporated the existing historical building of the German House of Culture, currently standing next to the ruins of the former wine-making company, into the future structure of the locality.

 

As well as the rebuilding of the abandoned wine-making company the developer wants to invest in modern cycle paths and the reconstruction of a bus stop. They will also launch neighbouring vineyards and support their maintenance for 10 years at least in order to recall the famous wine-making past of Rača.
