JTRE London was founded in September 2019 by one of Central Europe’s leading property developers JTRE, based in Slovakia. JTRE entered the UK real estate market in 2018 having acquired its first Prime Central London asset for development on the South Bank, the £450m mixed use scheme, Triptych Bankside.
Appleby Blue on Southwark Park Road, a project in partnership with United St. Saviour’s Charity is JTRE London’s second project. Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects, Witherford, Watson and Mann, Appleby Blue is a new Almshouse consisting of 57 new homes and community space.
As an urban developer, JTRE shapes a full-value space for life and living – employment, residences, entertainment, leisure, and active relaxation. JTRE’s approach is to responsibly develop cities’ potential by encouraging contemporary architecture and by supporting sustainable urbanisation. Thanks to its unique approach and innovative solutions JTRE creates vibrant neighbourhoods and flourishing places for a high-quality lifestyle.
Founded in 1996, JTRE now has over 300 employees with offices in three countries and broad experience developing and managing a wide range of real estate projects in nine countries, mainly in Central and Eastern Europe, totalling over 10 million sq ft with a GDV of over €1.6bn. To date, JTRE’s focus has been on its home city of Bratislava (Slovak Republic), as well as the Czech Republic. Following on from its initial UK acquisition, the company is actively seeking high-profile, high-value schemes all over London.
JTRE’s substantial resources and international experience, combined with the knowledge and expertise of the JTRE London team, has created a strong combination for the business to make a real impact on the London market.
JTRE London is run by Joint Managing Directors Juraj Marko and Nigel Fleming. Juraj joined JTRE as a project manager in 2004 after finishing university and has experience leading the delivery of large scale, complex projects in the residential, retail, office, hotel and industrial sectors.
Nigel brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with over 15 years of experience in Prime Central London mixed use developments. He has a proven track record of delivering exceptional results in Sales and Leasing.
