Top office space still available

All 2,000 square meters of rentable retail space is full, but half of the 3,000 square meters of office space remains unsigned in Slovenská Poisťovňa's new headquarters building, scheduled to open on Bratislava's Dostojevského Rad in April.
Slovenská Poisťovňa, the country's largest insurance company, owns 100 percent and will occupy most of the 30,000-square-meter building. Miroslav Kubík of the letting agency IURIS would only say the building's cost makes it "one of the most expensive buildings in Bratislava." Rent for both office and retail space is about 7,600 Sk ($250) per square meter per year.

The building, which has the Košice-based construction company Hutné Stavby as its general contractor, will include two floors of garage space with 160 parking spaces. Istrobanka will have a branch in the retail space and administrative office space.

"There are many buildings with office space available in Bratislava," said Kubík, "but few of this size and standard."
