A new residential project is due to start near Piešťany. The Stavoprac company has begun construction work on the Beňovský Residence in the town of Vrbové which will provide almost thirty flats according to Trend Reality.
The new project, between the streets of Beňovského and Komenského in the centre of Vrbové, will cover an area of 1.693 square metres and will provide 29 flats and three non-residential spaces. These will be arranged as three, 4-storey blocks with underground garage space for 43 cars.
“There will be seven one-room flats, 10 two-room flats and 12 three-room flats,” explains Michal Žitník, reality consultant for Neoreal, the company responsible for selling the project, for Trend Reality.
The company has already started selling the lots. The initial price of the Flats ranges from €1, 129 to €1,698 per square metre. This price includes cellar space. Parking space will cost €9,000, Trend Reality wrote.
“The final inspection is planned for April 2018,” stated M. Žitník, as quoted by Trend Reality. The designers of the architectural plan are the Beef Architekti studio.

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. This time-line stems from the plans of its owner, the company Smart City Centre, published as part of the ongoing environmental impact assessment (EIA) proceedings. Demolition work is expected to cost about €3.1 million.
