DEVELOPERS as well as real estate agents are reporting signs of recovery in the market for office space, saying companies in Slovakia are more confident and showing more interest in new office space.

DEVELOPERS as well as real estate agents are reporting signs of recovery in the market for office space, saying companies in Slovakia are more confident and showing more interest in new office space.

“Companies are showing stronger interest in larger-sized office accommodation compared to the previous two years,” Andrea Ševčíková, office leasing manager for Ballymore Group, stated in press release in early August.

Ballymore Group owns and leases Class A office premises in the three central buildings at the Eurovea development on Bratislava’s Danube embankment.

“We are reasonably pleased with the leasing results so far,” Mike de Mug, retail director for Ballymore, said in the press release. “Both Central 1 and 2 are substantially leased and the remaining areas are in negotiations. Central 3 is close to reaching 50 percent occupancy, which would leave us with two floors of 2,500 square metres for which we are keen to attract a larger occupier.”
