JTRE has opened its residential project Downtown Yards in Bratislava for pre-sale and 20% of the stock is gone. This may indicate the asset class's return to a healthier status after a two-year slowdown.

135 of the 650 residences at the gateway to Bratislava’s expanding downtown have already been sold in the pre-sale phase. This development on the land between Košická, Prístavná, Plátenícka and Mlynské nivy comprises residential blocks ranging from 8 to 27 floors alongside busy Košická Street and lower multi-functional buildings facing calm Plátenícka Street. The project’s second stage will include a 35-floor office building on the corner of Košická and Prístavná Streets.

Green areas will amount to 6,100 sqm, including the revitalised tree avenue on Plátenícka Street and its extension to Prístavná, and new plantings along Košická. In the first phase alone, over 2,000 sqm of greenery will cover roofs to retain water and reduce solar reflection. The developer announced the aspiration to obtain A0 technical energy certification for the project’s air recuperation and rainwater collection.

After almost two years of cleansing this former brownfield site, preparatory work for construction piles and concreting of the base plate has commenced. The first stage completion is scheduled for 2026-2027.
