J&T Real Estate is moving forward with the extension of the Eurovea mixed-use complex. The foundation work is progressing and the contractor selection process has concluded.

The contractors of the foundation plate and reinforced concrete supporting structures will gradually take over the construction site in the coming weeks. Contractor VHS-PS, s.r.o. is set to take begin its work onsite on March 31. The other contractors, consortium Eurovea 2 consisting of the lead member STRABAG Pozemné a inžinierske staviteľstvo s. r. o. and the company SYTIQ a. s., are set to follow within a few weeks.

The project consists of six buildings - extension of the Eurovea shopping mall, Eurovea Tower with a height of 168 meters, Riverside residences, Pribinova X and Pribinova Y office buildings, as well as underground garages. Construction within the Eurovea City district along the Danube includes the extension of the waterfront promenade, the construction of the Pribinova Boulevard and other new public areas, playgrounds and sports facilities.

The sale of apartments commenced last summer. As of today, 65 percent of the 485 residences in both the Eurovea Tower skyscraper and the Riverside waterfront apartment complex has been sold.

“The expansion of Eurovea is moving to the phase where the structure will rapidly ascend from the foundation to soon form into the Eurovea Tower, the first skyscraper in Slovakia. This process, one that required years of preparation, hard work and constant communication with architects, engineers, urban planners and other professionals, with representatives of the city and city districts, with neighbours and other public, will soon realize its appearance and structure. Our ambition to build a complex city district along the Danube embankment in Bratislava, complementing what Eurovea visitors enjoy, will come closer to reality,” says Pavel Pelikán, Executive Director of JTRE.

Respecting the spreading coronavirus epidemic, work on all JTRE projects continues. Understanding the risk, JTRE took immediate action at the end of February and implemented stringent sanitary measures throughout all the firm’s active workplaces and construction sites. Specifically, they introduced measures such as increased disinfection and use of protective equipment, temperature measurement at the entrance to the construction sites and many others. JTRE employees, as well as all contractors, work from home or in open areas to abide by the regulations and recommendations of the Central Crisis Staff of the Slovak Republic and the Slovak Government.
