Waltrovka engine factory turned into a new neighborhood by Penta Investments in Prague, Czech Republic
RESIDENCE WALTROVKA is the first project of this size in wider center of Prague. In several stages we will construct more than 650 apartments and houses. During three months and before we even start the construction we managed to sell more than 30% of units in the first phase, which includes more than 290 units. Upon completion of the this phase we sold more than 90 percent of apartments, which proves the success and popularity of the project.
WALTROVKA is also exceptional because it is not only pure residential project compering to other projects in Prague, but there are also more than 75.000 m2 of leasable office space and several hundred meters of retail space, which offers to our clients a wide range of services.
The project includes a large newly built park of 1.8 hectares which arises by revitalization of neglected green areas. The park will include new playground and other water and gameplay elements.
The location has excellent transport links to the city center. Metro station Jinonice is just next to Waltrovka and will be connected by the new bridge, which will lead directly to the new central square.
The whole concept was created by cooperation of several architectural studies. By this strategy we have achieved, that Waltrovka is architecturally varied and high quality compact territory.
