In Bratislava, directly on the banks of the Danube, where large-scale industry once dominated the cityscape, Eurovea City is currently growing - a modern quarter that is to take on the role of the social and cultural center of the city. Eurovea City is an entertainment, residential, commercial and administrative district, which will also include new parks, sports fields and public spaces. Another eye-catcher of this center will be the Eurovea Tower, which will definitely change the overall cityscape of Bratislava together with other unique designs of the Spanish architect Beth Galí. The developer of the currently largest construction project in the country is the company J&T Real Estate, the realization is shared by the companies Adifex, Strabag and Sytiq. The team of architects from Studio GFI from Bratislava provided the design for the building.
Eurovea is already one of the most visited places in Bratislava.
In addition to its function as a shopping and service center, the district is also a popular meeting point, a venue for various events and, above all, a place where the capital's residents like to spend their free time. This is also proven by the figures: since the opening of the complex in 2010, almost one hundred million visitors have passed through the Eurovea gates. After the completion of the mammoth project, a total of 1,470 new apartments, 285,000 m² of office space and 95,000 m² for additional commercial premises will have been created. This means that Eurovea City will house around 3,000 residents in the future and provide space for 45,000 workers. The expected daily number of visitors will be approximately 65,000.
Ytong, Silka and Multipor help build the skyscraper
With a height of 168 meters and an appealing structural form accentuated by a play of shadows on the facade during the day and impressive lighting at night, the Eurovea Tower will completely change the skyline of Bratislava. Upon completion , scheduled for 2023, Eurovea Tower will include 389 apartments of a high standard on 45 floors, unique views of the entire city, an exclusive lobby and commercial spaces, a variety of shopping facilities and ample parking.
A total of 3500 m³ of Ytong autoclaved aerated concrete blocks, 400 m³ of Silka Calcium Silicate and 300 m³ of Multipor mineral insulation boards are used in the project by Studio GFI. "As a manufacturer, we are pleased that almost our entire product range is being used in this technically and architecturally outstanding project. The advantages of Ytong AAC blocks are well known to Slovak architects and investors, and we are pleased that Silka Calcium Silicate and Multipor mineral insulation boards have continued their good reputation. We are proud that we were also able to carry out this project with the help of our blue.sprint service," says Peter Markovič, CEO of Xella Czech Republic and Slovakia.
