EUROPA SHOPPING & RELAX CENTER Zvolen
27 May 2009
Works started on the base of the structure, which will be under the surface level of the Hron river and the underground water level. It means that, before digging the construction pit for the shopping center construction in the area called “Jama”(Pit), it is necessary to perform insulation walls an pumping wells. After completion of the base, it will be possible to take away the auxiliary technical structures. It is obvious that building the base of the construction is not simple. It also includes overlaying of infrastructure networks- the quantity of earth that needs to be removed during digging works is 3,500 m3, which will be transported by trucks to the “Čierne zeme” (Black Earth) area. (That is where RETAIL PARK Zvolen should be built; its preparatory works are already intensively progressing.) Until the beginning of September, the base for EUROPA SHOPPING CENTER Zvolen should be completed.
The project consists of two stages. There is a separate EUROPA SHOPPING CENTER, located in the Jama area and is connected with a glassed pier over the street to the second section, RELAX CENTER, on lands where the former Mier cinema and a hostel are standing now. There are also plans to develop this part of Zvolen and revitalize the park. EUROPA SHOPPING CENTER will have two floors above the ground with the area for rent of 10,500 m2, for shops, cafes and services. Visitors of the shopping center can use the underground parking lot, under the center. The Mier cinema, which ended its operation, will be pulled down together with the hostel and the second part of the modern RELAX CENTER with the area for rent of 10,500 m 2 will be built on that place and adjacent lands and connected to the 1st stage. Together it will offer 21,000 m2 of the area for rent. On the 3rd floor, inhabitants of Zvolen will have the possibility to use two multiplex cinemas and a fitness center. The object will later also provide parking house for more than 400 vehicles.
The 1st stage of works should be completed until October 2010, its opening is planned in June 2012. It means that inhabitants of Zvolen – similar to Banská Bystrica – should get the “EUROPA” project before Summer 2012.
The 2nd stage – RELAX CENTER – Start of the construction is planned in Autumn 2014. The completion is expected in Spring 2016 and opening of RELAX CENTER in Spring 2016.
