New Slnečnice residential area proves to be popular

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.

 

Young people especially, who were looking for two-room apartments, speeded up their acquisitions as the state is changing its support scheme for housing for young people as of 2018. The year 2017 also brought a tightening of the rules governing mortgages, the developer Cresco Group recalled in its press release.

 

After completion, Slnečnice will consist of two zones – Viladomy and Mesto and house up to 9, 000 people, the developer informs on the project website. Apart from family houses and apartment blocks, the developer promises a shopping centre, restaurants and cafes, parks, a kindergarten, school and other amenities.
