UNIQ Staromestská, a new office building in Bratislava’s Old Town, has successfully undergone demanding environmental certification. Only five months after getting approval for construction works, the project by the developer Cresco Group received the LEED Gold certificate.
Prešov, as the last regional capital, has finally gotten a bigger shopping centre. The Eperia Shopping Mall opened on Friday, November 24. During the first weekend about 70,000 people visited, the Trendreality.sk website reported.
Residential development Sky Park in Bratislava, one of the last projects of now deceased prominent world architect Zaha Hadid, will be bigger than originally planned. It will now have four instead of three residential towers. The fourth tower will be built on the neighbouring plot bought by the developer earlier this year. The extension is now undergoing an environmental impact assessment.
Construction and expansion of shopping centres in Slovakia will continue.
“Slovakia expects extensive construction and expansion of shopping centres in 2017 and 2018,” said Katarína Paule, head of the retail team at Cushman & Wakefield in Slovakia. “In 2017, there will be as much as 56,258 square meters in total to be completed, with 83 percent being new shopping centres, and 17 percent planned expansions of already existing projects.”
Arete Invest, a Czech investment fund focused on real estate, plans to invest around €30 million in Slovakia in 2018. It is considering new construction on industrial premises it already owns as well as new acquisitions. The company sees great potential in the Slovak market.
