The developer of the multifunctional complex Eurovea 2, company J&T Real Estate, has revealed more details and visualisations of the project. Part of it includes the first skyscraper in Bratislava which, according to official criteria, will be over 150 metres.
The expansion of the current complex that occupies the Danube embankment should be composed of altogether six constructions, the Trend weekly reported on its website.
The main part of Eurovea 2 will be composed of an extension of the shopping centre, an underground garage, an apartment building, two administrative buildings and a residential tower. The size of the shopping centre will increase to 84,000 square metres, with the plan to add six cinema halls, 487 flats, 40,300 square metres of offices, and more than 2,200 parking places.
The size of the whole complex is expected to increase to 8.5 hectares, with the park being extended to 15,000 square metres and the promenade to 2.3 hectares. Three new playgrounds for children should also be added, Trend reported.
The second phase of the project will follow the image of the existing constructions, with the plan to gradually increase the height of the buildings in the direction of Apollo Bridge.
“We plan to construct the dominant building close to the bridge as an important orientation point, which will have 46 above-ground floors,” said Peter Korbačka, owner of the complex, as quoted by Trend.
At a height of 168 metres it would become the first skyscraper in Slovakia.
Currently, the planned expansion of the shopping complex is undergoing an environmental impact assessment process, and is also waiting for planning permission, Trend reported.
“The aim of all these activities is to enable the inhabitants of Bratislava to come closer to the Danube and use its embankments to a greater extent,” Korbačka said,as quoted by Trend.
The plans to connect Eurovea with the New Lido project via a pedestrian bridge may create some preconditions to fulfill the vision of Bratislava as “a city on the Danube”, as reported by the weekly.
The extended complex should also have good transport connection to the city, including public transport, cycling routes and a network for pedestrians.
