46-floor Eurovea Tower is the last part of expansion of the popular waterfront area, which includes the extended Eurovea shopping centre, Pribinova 34 and Pribinova 40 office buildings, Riverside waterfront residences, and large public spaces. Designed by GFI architectural studio, 168-metre Eurovea Tower is already a distinctive sight on Bratislava's skyline.
"Combining mixed functions with attractive public spaces has made Eurovea one of Bratislava’s liveliest go-to destinations, and we aimed to build on that atmosphere. Our vision was to create a high-quality urban space in this fast-growing part of the city - with numerous leisure opportunities and free-time activities. This vision is becoming a reality and Eurovea City is already brimming with life."
Pavel Pelikán, JTRE’s executive director
The first Slovak skyscraper Eurovea Tower is the pinnacle of this effort and has become city’s new landmark. "It is unique in Slovakia. It has challenged JTRE and our partners towards attaining new knowledge and gaining a wealth of experience. I thank the team led by project manager Ľuboš Kaštan, the architects and designers, and all the contractors and workers engaged in this project," he added.
"We and our suppliers met all the challenges of such an exceptional project. And I’m proud of that. The over five years’ preparation and construction was a big ask – yet the experience has paid dividends and Bratislava has gained a new landmark."
Ľuboš Kaštan, JTRE’s project manager
The main contractor was a strong and experienced partner, STRABAG Civil and Engineering Construction, supported by Sytiq and Adifex. Process management on-site and supplier-to-supplier communication was ensured by Gleeds.
Construction progress was closely followed by both professionals and the general public via a digital display showing the currently built floor. Award-winning director Jaroslav Vojtek led a behind-the-scenes documentary about the building, which will be released next year.
The skyscraper’s residences have generated very high interest: 90% of the 408 homes have been sold, while over 30 apartments with unique views are being prepared for sale. In the last apartments sold, Standard fittings are being installed for homeowners in sold properties.
"We’ve saved the very best for last: exceptional penthouses that represent the premium offer of the Bratislava real estate market. Such residences will be available on four floors, including the highest 44th and 45th."
Ivan Bratko, JTRE’s director of residential real estate sales
