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 Tammi project has brought modern housing with complete adjacent amenities to Dúbravka,” said Milan Murcko, general director of YIT Slovakia, adding that its residents appreciate especially the variable layouts of the apartments in the development with their fresh design and close to nature feel via the view of the Carpathian Mountains and a lot greenery around. “I’m convinced that residents of the fifth phase will get to like their new home in Dúbravka also thanks to the community that has been already created in Tammi.”
The first building will have 14 floors and 86 apartments. The second one will have eight storeys and 42 apartments with up to three rooms. Their size will be from 30 square metres up to 69 square metres. Most of the apartments have a terrace or balcony. The price starts at €70,220 which includes a cellar alcove. Part of the fifth phase is also an underground garage with 149 parking places for cars, six parking places for motorbikes and 35 external parking places for the public.
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 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).
Prices of apartments in Bratislava have increased to their highest level since the crisis, the real estate agency Lexxus has discovered. Based on its latest residential real estate analysis, Slovaks are prepared to pay still more for apartments. This is because they fear further increases in real estate prices as well as the impact of measures taken by the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS). These may worsen accessibility of housing for the middle classes from January.
