The investment group, Proxenta, has presented the final view of its 13-floor tower block at Račianske mýto. The project, called the Proxenta Residence, includes offices and flats. Sales are due to start in September although advance sales will be available this summer. Construction started at the beginning of this year and should be completed by the end of 2018, Reality Etrend wrote.
The Proxenta Residence offers 64 2-room flats and apartments with areas between 46.8 and 62 square meters. Most of them are accompanied by a balcony or loggia. The price includes cellar space with aluminium windows, wooden floors and the fittings for the installation of air-conditioning as standard.
The residential space in the tower block starts on the fifth floor, while offices with an area of 1,800 square metres occupy the floors below. Some of the office space has been reserved as the new home for Proxenta itself, Reality Etrend informed.
“We did not build the tower block only for future residents but also for ourselves. We will be able to meet with the owners daily and we will focus more on building to the highest possible quality,” said Pavol Kožík, the owner of Proxenta group, as quoted by Reality Etrend.
The residential and office parts will have their own lifts. The administrative part of the building will be serviced by a transparent panoramic glass lift opening at Račianske mýto. The parking system includes four drive-gates that will park the car in the parking space. There is a capacity of 138 parking places.
“The automatic parking system is a usual part of modern cities. Its advantage is a significant saving of parking space,” explained P. Kožík, as quoted by Reality Etrend, adding that the system is also convenient for users.
Reality Etrend stated that the Proxenta group are also the backers of the Weinhauer and Kesselbauer projects in Bratislava and Townhill in Nitra as well as other similar concerns.
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).
