Regeneration of Central Railway Station Square Area

Predstanicne namestie
Not only will the main bus station undergo a major overhaul, but so will the Central train station. This ambitious project will be carried out by the strong domestic construction-developer group I.P.R. Slovakia.
 

 
 

It has already successfully completed many projects, and it is currently finishing off the office complex AstoriaPalace, situated right in the heart of Bratislava opposite the seat of the Slovak president. The new mixed-use zone worth seven billion koruna will give the station a new face and integrate it more into the city’s character. The organisation of transport in this locality will also be improved.  

 

A public bus terminal will be located below the new station hall. A floor lower there will be a turnaround junction for trams. The new station hall above the bus terminal will have passages leading directly onto the platforms. Some SKK 900 million has been earmarked for the new train station, the renovation of the current train station buildings and alteration of the TransportMuseum. In addition to the construction of a new train station and the reconstruction of the current one, a shopping centre with 75,000 square metres of leasble area will also be built.  

 

This will turn the train station into one of the five largest shopping zones in the Slovak capital. The planned shopping centre will have a main pedestrian aisle, basically a covered passage, fringed by 3 and 4 storey buildings. A passage will lead out to the station square in front of the main station building. Two office buildings and a hotel will also be built, creating the border at the other side of the square at Šancova Street. The investor will incorporate the original train station building from 1904 into the design.  

 

Parking places will be create on the first, second and third underground floors of the project. The first and second underground floors will include underground tram stops. The first floor above ground of the shopping centre will be open non-stop, and will include, among other things, a hypermarket and other shops, just like on the second floor.
