Movement at Eurovea in Bratislava

The Eurovea 2 project has recently received the green light for the construction of the Eurovea expansion, Eurovea Tower – the first skyscraper in Slovakia, Riverside Residence, the Pribinova X and Pribinova Y administrative buildings, as well as an underground parking garage. The mall expansion is scheduled to open later this year.

“Long-term preparations have been required for Eurovea 2. We have intensively communicated and coordinated our vision with experts, municipal representatives, city districts, specialized departments, property owners, and the general public. We are aiming for the comprehensive and considerate completion of the entire zone,” commented Pavel Pelikán, Executive Director of J&T Real Estate, the responsible developer.

Last summer, Eurovea 2’s initial sale of apartments generated strong interest. “The immediate enthusiasm for Eurovea 2’s residential opportunities confirmed the project’s promising parameters, which have really captured buyers’ imagination. Eurovea City will become a popular destination for residents, office users, and visitors, all of whom can look forward to a 25,000-square-meter waterfront park. The area beneath Apollo Bridge will be imaginatively invigorated by a new activity park, which will be divided into three zones according to users’ ages, and Pribinova Street will be lined by attractive trees. We also aim to connect Eurovea’s waterfront area directly to the bus stop located on the bridge. These plans will enrich the lives of Bratislava’s residents and facilitate accessible connections to the wonderful Danube,” added Pelikán. Owners of the apartments located in Slovakia’s very first skyscraper are due to receive their keys in mid-2023.

Primark to Become New Anchor Tenant

Eurovea mall’s expansion is scheduled to be completed by December 2022. From that point, the shopping destination will cover 84,000 sq m, of which Primark’s first Slovak store will comprise 3,700 sq m of net retail space spread over two floors. “Primark’s decision represents a significant success story for us – and a key milestone for the whole expansion project. This is a sure sign of strong market confidence in our project,” said owner, Peter Korbačka. The mall’s enduring popularity is based on its riverside position, unique atmosphere, welcoming architecture, and quality shopping. This is evidenced by increased footfall, shop revenues, and the continuous interest of brands to open here. Its long-term positive trend of increasing footfall was demonstrated by another new record: The mall welcomed 1,255,000 visitors in November 2019.

Primark is just one of several new brands that Eurovea’s extension will deliver to the country’s market. In addition, the expanded shopping center will offer visitors the largest food court in Slovakia, an extended Danube promenade, new restaurants, cafes, and relaxing public spaces designed by famous architect Beth Galí. With 100 new shops primed to open, Eurovea is set to lead the Slovak retail market, offering 300 shops in one place.
