Real estate developer HB Reavis launched construction on a project called Stanica Nivy that should replace the current main bus station in Bratislava in the area known as Mlynské Nivy on May 16.

The whole project is beginning with the construction of a 125-metre office building called Nivy Tower. Though there had been a proposal to limit the height of the buildings so they do not exceed 111 metres, it is far from being approved.

The developer will then continue in the summer by ushering in the construction of a new international bus terminal featuring a mall and a modern market hall on the site of the current station, the TASR newswire reported.

“This will be situated in the core of the new business quarter,” said Jakub Gossánui of HB Reavis Slovakia, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The new bus station will have three above-ground and two underground floors, with bus platforms located on the first underground storey. It will be accessible for both public and private transport, and the project involves the creation of 2,150 parking spaces, but HB Reavis says that the area will also be comfortably accessible for cyclists and pedestrians.

Meanwhile, the developer stated that the new bus station will be topped by a “unique green roof” as large as two football pitches, featuring gardens, a running track and all sorts of equipment for active recreation and sport, as reported by TASR.
