Zlín construction projects

What do you guys think about this one? I don't know Zlín to judge. At first I rather liked it, but after looking closer I realized that it is actually again a huge block, that doesn't provide much of a street and city creation, which I think is a pity, especially if they plan the station nearby.

Looking at this. Maybe it won't be that bad.

This project is what Zlín need and waiting for.. I Know Zlín very well and its lovely Tomáš Baťa town. Btw girls are there so pretty :-) These old blocks were empty and it wasnt look good.Iam glad that this bring life under 21 skyscraper.

It looks like dream for Zlín. Design is decent

Is it me or the grey running mans on the wall of the building looks like Deckard from Blade Runner (my favourite movie of all time) i hope they put it on it

Yes, this area needed it badly. Better some new blocks that fit in than brownfields (Zlin has enough refurbished Bata style buildings, some new will do the area good). Yeah, Blade Runner is also my all-time fav :-) I hope the design stays like that

The design is very nice and it respects the original urban setting, but I am wondering what all those people are doing in the space around it, especially in the second picture. Staring at a brick wall? Why no restaurants and cafés (and coffeeshops - always good for the atmosphere) on the outer side of the block? Why are people forced to eat and drink inside in some closed-up foodcourt when the weather is nice? I think that it's extremely difficult to bring some life into a huge brownfield like this one, and this might not be the right way to achieve that. In my home town they're trying to transform a similar brownfield into a trendy neighborhood, but despite all the übercreative ideas, it's still hard to get things moving.

Exactly my thoughts! Well put. I see it it multiple Czech cities and I understand it, it's better for the shopping profits, but I don't feel it is that good for the cities.

I like the design as well and it fits Zlín, one of few cities with a brick architecture in the Czech Republic, i don't know about the application though.
