Slovak-Finnish company YIT Slovakia has launched the sale of apartments in the third phase of the STEIN2 project in Bratislava. For the first time, there are apartments with terraces on offer. The final building approval is expected during the last quarter of 2018.
“The STEIN 2 project is among our most interesting projects,” said Milan Murcko, general director of YIT Slovakia, as cited in the press release. “It appeals, by reason of its location, to people who want to live in close contact with the city centre and appreciate the nearness of the complete amenities in this traditional residential area.”
The STEIN2 project is a development on the premises of the former Stein brewery framed by Legionárska, Blumentálska and Bernolákova streets. Only one building was preserved from the former brewery, the fermentation room, called Spilka. The project will provide a total of 408 apartments, 27 non-housing spaces and 583 parking places in five phases.
The third phase, i.e. the eight-floor residential building on the corner of Blumentálska and Bernolákova streets, offers 72 apartments with one to four rooms and ranging from 40-105 square metres in area. Two- and three-room apartments make up the biggest portion of the offer. Most of the apartments have balconies while those on the top floor have terraces.
The prices of the apartments start at €125,570 including VAT. Contrary to previous phases, the price of each apartment already includes the price of a cellar. In the garage, to be shared with all future dwellers, there are 88 parking places reserved for the third phase.
