SLOVAKIA Penta holds competition for Dynamitka site

Architecture and urban planning
Penta Real Estate is holding an architectural competition for the development of a 4.5 ha brownfield site that formed part of the former Juraj Dimitrov chemical works (known locally as ‘DImitrovka’ or ‘Dynamitka’) in Bratislava.

A residential and mixed-use project with the working title Vajnorská is planned for the site on the corner of Vajnorská and Odborárska streets in the city’s Nové Mesto district.

Six architectural studios have confirmed their participation in the competition: Baumschlager Eberle Architekten, Bevk Perović, ChartierDalix, Chybík+Krištof, Pantograph and Superateliér.

The competition comprises one round and will be assessed by a five-member jury of professionals, consisting of three independent members and two representatives of Penta Real Estate. The winner is to be announced at the end of March next year.

The zoning of the site allows for the mixed-use development of 146,000 sqm of residential, service and public buildings. Once the outcome of the competition has been decided, an architectural study is to be prepared and the investment plans will be presented to the city at the end of 2023.

Penta Real Estate has previous experience of the remediation of contaminated sites, including a sludge field in the area of a former oil refinery in Žiar nad Hronom in Slovakia’s central Banská Bystrica region.
