Nitra Invest is planning to build a small shopping centre on the estate near the R1 road. The commercial premises will spread over an area of 3,000 square metres and provide space for about eight shops, Ondrej Ščurka jr. from Nitra Invest, told the SITA newswire.
“We have a confirmed food store, and interest is being shown by a pharmacy. We also have enough space for housewares and would like to have a bistro or smaller restaurant,” explains Ščurka for SITA. The construction works start this year and the shops should be open by the autumn of 2018.
The reason for this project is, according to Ščurka, the fact that industrial parks often lack any facilities for the public.
“Our aim is that people can do all their shopping on the way home from work without stopping in a traffic jam in the city, or wandering around a big shopping centre. We assume that the inhabitants of Zobor would be interested as well,” thinks Ščurka.
In the next phase Nitra Invest plans to build office spaces and a nursery school.
“Employers are reminding us that there is a big interest in having a nursery school. To start with we are planning on a capacity of 50 to 100 children,” added Ščurka for SITA.

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).
