The investor declares that the entire demolition will be gradual and very delicate, in order to reduce the negative impacts related to the work as much as possible.

A congress centre with residential and administrative buildings or a hotel will be constructed on the site.

The development company Immocap bought Istropolis in 2017 from the Unified Property Fund of Trade Unions. It started demolishing the building when it received permission from the Bratislava city district of Nové Mesto.
