Cheap Land Around Trakia Highway On Offer

The offers for parcels and real estate along the route of Trakiya highway have dropped by up to 90 per cent over the past six months, Monitor daily reported on December 12. The land plots along the highway are well placed for the construction of logistical centres, petrol stations, auto services, motels and road-side restaurants, with the most popular segments being located at strategic intersections with other highways or close to major urban centres, the daily said.

The sharpest drop was registered in the Plovdiv region, which not too long ago was the most desired sector for potential investors.Currently, parcels of land along the motorway are offered from 2.7 euro to 81 euro a square metre. The most expensive parcels of land offered at the moment are 9000 square metres for 800 000 euro, about 10km outside Plovdiv. The land comes ready with completed paperwork for the construction of a petrol station.
