V Tower Praha | 104m

PRAGUE V TOWER | 104m | 31 fl | U/C

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.

It's good to see that this freakin parking lot finally disappears, but they should definitely go for classical lamppost designs. It's World Heritage Prague, dammit!

And definitely keep the chessboard-styled cobble pavement, better cover the whole square with it!

Reconstruction of Wenceslas Square To Start Next Week

The City of Prague has received a final construction permit for the reconstruction of the lower end of Wenceslas Square.

“The building permit became final. It was a long and complicated process because the square is a very complicated area. …We now believe that the square will be significantly better and more pleasant for the public in the foreseeable future,” Prague Mayor Oldřich Lomecký (TOP 09) said.

The sidewalk will be expanded by a quarter to 17 meters. Some 70 parking spaces will disappear at the bottom of the square, and fewer that 20 will remain.

Renovations will touch the area bordered by Na Příkopě and 28. října Streets on one side and Vodičková and Jindřišská Streets on the other.

There will also be fewer parking spaces in the square, in fact, seven dozen of them will disappear on the lower end, and asphalt will replace split granite pavement in some areas. On the side of the square by palác Koruna, there will be another row of trees. Plane trees will be added to the lime trees. New water nozzles and sprinklers will appear while Jindřišská and Vodičkova streets will no longer be accessible.

It should cost over 150 million and be concluded by the end of 2018.

Not in our lifetime. There is a lot of ecoterrorism, i.e. faulty ecological arguments are used to terrorize developers and anyone who wants any progress.
There are currently 3 buildings above 100 m.
2 more were planned until the developer gave up.

The city's planning body prepares a plan for more high rises, but only one skyscraper, which is greatly opposed by many brainwashed people - some of them have statues of Karl Marx in their offices.

UNESCO is not a real problem. The local ecoterrorists begged UNESCO to ban construction of any "skyscrapers", hence all the attention.

Until the reason wins, at would seem that every 2 storey phone booth is called a skyscraper by ecoterrorists and therefore banned.

Why don't prague build the high-rises outside the city centre like paris then..?
Honestly you're not missing out on anything. Most towers are just boring looking anywhere except in really wealthy places like london or new york

It's great to see the old building of the National museum being restored to its former glory. I was surprised last summer while visiting Prague that the works on the old building were in full force while the new building seemed rather sad and outdated, but now that I see both buildings being restored, I can't say I'm not happy. Are there any renders and visualizations of how the new building will look when restored?

To meet the demand for a new housing units in Prague, there needs to be completed around 6000 units a year, but in the last 8 years, it's something about 3500 a year, so yeah, that's a big problem. The main reason is long and complicated permission process. At the end of the last year, for example, there was around 40.000 housing units waiting for approvals. Ever since 2000, annual number of granted building permits in Prague decreased aroung 75% and as consequence of all that (plus inflation and wage growth), the prices of flats rised about 70% just in the last three years.
