Private investors have started to fight for the most attractive state construction plot in Slovakia: 40,000 square meters of vacant land in the centre of Bratislava, near the new Slovak National Theatre building.

The Bratislavská Teplárenská heating plant is selling the plot worth more than Sk500 million, the daily Pravda wrote on December 12. The company is controlled by Smer party nominees.

The list of potential buyers includes major players such as the Penta and J&T financial groups.

The plot is suitable for constructing high-rise buildings. Independent sources close to the tender told the daily that Jozef Brhel, a key person close to Smer, is behind the tender.
