by Property Forum | Office

One of the world’s largest IT companies has picked New Apollo, currently under construction by HB Reavis in Bratislava’s New Nivy zone, as the new home for its Slovak operations. The new tenant will occupy almost 30,000 sqm of the building’s 48,000 sqm.

The new tenant will use the developer’s Qubes services. Designed for short to mid-term lease, Qubes gives tenants the ability to easily increase and decrease their footprint. The tenant will also use HB Reavis’s More platform not only for building management, but also to help employees use the concierge and bike-sharing services, and book wellbeing, health, and work-related educational events. Another service by the developer, Symbiosy aims to help the tenant improve employee wellbeing through digital experiences, enhancing collaborations and thus boosting performance in their working day.

New Apollo aims to achieve WELL certification and the building has also applied for BREEAM certification. The project will showcase a wide range of retail and services, including cycling facilities and a café at the Bikehub, part of New Apollo’s aim to support alternative commuting. 

The office building is scheduled to be completed in 2023, with a total leasable area of almost 48,000 sqm across seven above-ground floors. The project’s design has been pioneered by British architectural studio Make Architects in partnership with local studio Siebert+Talaš.
