Project work by 13 students from the Architecture Faculty at the Slovak Technical University of Bratislava has resulted in new visions and uses for the Miletička market area. http://www.fa.stuba.sk/sk/ustavy/ustav-urbanizmu-a-uzemneho-planovania/aktivity-a-aktuality-ustavu/nova-tvar-mileticky.html?page_id=6474
Their briefs included urban research of the zone.
“The proposals have been published in a collection that is available also to the local planners involved with Miletičova market. They could offer some inspiration,” said the spokesperson for Ružinov, Marianna Šebová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Some of the designers worked new cycle routes or concepts to solve traffic problems into their designs, even though they their approach to the city areas around the market was more of a visionary exercise.
“A sports zone with a climbing wall is presented in one project, another emphasised greenness,” stated Šebová for TASR.
This is the first time the faculty and the city have initiated such cooperation. The intention is that it should expand further into other fields such as architecture, urbanism, local planning and landscaping.
While Bratislava already accommodates almost 30 shopping centres, another one is on the horizon. Macho Consulting, a company that has been devoted especially to residential projects in the past, will build Matrix Mall in the more or less industrial zone of Bratislava in the borough of Nové Mesto. The shopping centre on the corner of Magnetova and Vajnorská streets, close to the Vozovňa Nové Mesto depot, will offer retail and office space.
Trnava-based tycoon Vladimír Poór has sold the recently opened City Arena shopping centre in Trnava to Peter Korbačka, the head of the board of directors of the developer J&T Real Estate. The latter already owns the Eurovea shopping centre in Bratislava. Neither the price nor other details of the transaction have been disclosed.
The emptied defective Apollo Business Centre 1 in Bratislava will be replaced by a brand-new construction. The developer HB Reavis estimates the launch of demolition work for the end of 2018. Construction work on the new business centre, the Nové (new) Apollo should start in late 2019 and be complete in 2021. Exact dates will depend on permission processes.
Bratislava is to get another revitalised public space. The developer Corwin is renewing a neglected park on Kmeťovo Square in the Old Town borough. Works on the park, which lies between Bernolákova and Wilsonova Streets, have already started and should be complete by the beginning of the summer.
The main industrial regions in Slovakia are reporting a lack of accommodation capacity for workers. These are in the vicinities of industrial and logistics parks mostly along highways connecting Bratislava with Košice (D1), leading from Bratislava to the Czech Republic (D2) and the dual carriageway from Trnava to Banská Bystrica (R1).
The developer, belonging to the Bencont Group has already started pulling down the buildings and cleaning the three-hectare area. “We believe that Rínok Rača, which we will begin to construct soon, will be the new centre of the borough and will naturally fit into the life of its citizens,” said Martin Šimurda, representative of the developer Rínok Rača, as cited in the press report.
The new indebting rules tightened by the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) will primarily impact citizens of the Slovak capital, Bratislava. They will be able to buy on credit, from an average wage, maximally a one-room flat in a new building or a two-room flat in an older block of flats. Other regions will be significantly less affected by the new lending cap, Poštová Banka has found out.
