Bratislava to get new business complex

IRISH developer Ballymore Properties plans to invest €250 million (Sk9.7 billion) in a 230,000 square metre business centre in Bratislava's city centre.

The developer aspires to make Eurovea a dominant complex in the so-called Pribinova zone near the Apollo Bridge. Eurovea will include retail and office space, a five-star hotel, restaurants, luxury flats and parking space for 1,700 cars, the TASR news agency wrote.

The project should be completed between the end of 2008 and the second quarter of 2009.

Ballymore Properties finances big projects across Europe. It is based in Dublin and London and also has offices in Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
