The resulting plan for one of Prague’s largest and most important brownfields includes 11,000 apartments for 25,000 people.

The Holešovice Bubny-Zátory section of Prague has not served its original purpose for decades. Formerly the site of a freight station and shipping facilities, today this area is ripe for transformation into a new, modern district. Plans for the construction of the Vltavská Philharmonic Hall are an integral part of the area’s future—this flagship building will be the symbol of the transformation of this part of Holešovice, and the first symphonic concert hall to be built in Prague in the last 100 years. 


To help determine the future layout of the area, IPR Prague commissioned a planning study in 2018, which was drafted by Czech studio Pelčák a partner architekti and German studio Thomas Müller Ivan Reimann Architekten GmbH. The final version of the study was released in December 2020 after public comments were incorporated. The resulting plan for one of Prague’s largest and most important brownfields includes 11,000 apartments for 25,000 people. The first buildings could break ground in 2025, while completion is anticipated for 2040.
