This summer construction work on a new residential district called Soho Park will begin. Family houses and blocks of flats should be completed by the end of next year on the site of a former high school in the Hadovce district, Reality Trend wrote.
The development company, Best Life Invest, has already launched the sale of plots for the individual construction of family houses. On offer are 20 areas ranging from 990 to 1,500 square metres priced from 46.80 euros per square metre including connection to utilities.
“The construction work for the utility connections will start in July and we plan to finish by the end of August,” said Miloš Kuchár as quoted by Reality Trend, co-partner of the development company.
The second phase should begin in September – the construction of two family houses and 62 flats. The sale of the one- to four-bedroom houses is planned for the spring of next year. The prices will be about 1,200 euros per square metre. The buildings will use thermal pumps, solar and photovoltaic panels, Reality Trend stated.
The developer also plans to reconstruct the former dormitory building of the school as a retirement home, if an administrator can be found, Reality Trend wrote.
“If not, we plan to build smaller flats for younger people,” added Kuchár as quoted by Reality Trend.
The whole of Soho Park has an area of 5.5 hectares’ and it will be gated with a controlled entrance and protected by a security camera system. Besides that, children’s playgrounds, nursery schools, a park with a water feature and a bistro café are also planned, Reality Trend informed.

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).
