Klingerka, a new real-estate project in the centre of Bratislava, will start the sale of its flats in April.
The construction of Klingerka, is planned to begin at the end of this year and is unusual because the company intend to build it in a single step. J&T Real Estate are responsible for many new and existing developments in the city centre and are keen that the Klingerka complex should develop and compliment the existing vistas of the capital. To this end they have assessed the land carefully in order to take into context the forthcoming development of a new urban area.
The complex will be built near Prístavná ulica upon the site of a former textile factory established in 1888 by Henry Klinger to process jute or ‚Klingerka‘ (hence the name) whose workers lived in a nearby residential colony called the Klinger Colony.
The plan is to build a 35 floor block of flats with an 11 floor administrative office building set further back. They will be connected by a garage with more than 600 parking spaces. J&T also plan to furnish the immediate neighbourhood with a new public park including sports facitities, a fitness park, a children’s playground, a relaxation zone and a public square. The green areas of the complex will cover 4,000 square metres
“The bi-concave ground plan of the block of flats enables the placing of a vertical core and stairs in the centre that helps with the evenness of the disposition of the flats. At the same time, this shape contributes to thin object viewing,” describes architecture of the complex, atelier GFI.
The administration building offers about 10,000 square metres of rentable area with a BREEAM certificate - Excellent. In addition, there will be almost 400 flats available ranging between 2-bedroom and 4-bedroom of a disposition and size commensurate with quality city living. For example, wooden parquet floors come as standard. Prices start at €2,200 per square metre.
The construction works are planned to be completed between the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
