PRAGUE | V Tower Prague | 104m | 31 fl | T/O

V Tower Prague
Height : 104m
Floor count : 31
Construction start : Q2 2015
Completition : Q4 2017
Location : Czech Republic, Prague, Pankrác
Use : Residental
Architect: RADAN HUBICKA Architectural Studio
Website: http://www.vtower.cz/en/


Additional info:
It will be the tallest residental building in Czech Republic when completed. Construction initially began in 2010, but bankruptcy of original developer has led to getting this project on hold. Later the approval for this building was cancelled and the project was sold to Aceur Investment company.
Today has been published this article (in Czech) which states that the construction should start in Q3 2014.
This V-shaped building will be situated at Pankrac plain just next to the City Tower, near the City Empiria, Arkády Pankrác shopping centre and Pankrác Metro station.
It is not certain that this project will be realized because there are lots of NIMBYs etc. in Prague . Anyway, since the project's been resurrected, it deserves to be in Proposed section IMO.

Just amazing! Prague has to develop as the other cities... It is not museum! I really hope it will be realized.

I think it's quite nice. It seems like it will fit in well with Prague's modern development cluster.

It seems like preparations have finally started. Let's hope it's not a false alarm.

Not a bad tower. And nice highrise cluster in the making.

Also having those private swimming pools on the balcony is still quite unusual for Europe. Well done.
