Pražská developerské společnost startuje
At the end of this year´s May establishment of Pražská developerská společnost (PDS), a new state-funded organization of the City of Prague, was approved. The organization will be in charge of the preparation of municipal housing projects and development of land and locations that are primarily owned by the city. PDS has just started to work independently.
The goal of the future months is to prepare several specific housing projects for territorial proceedings in such a manner that they meet current requirements and specification of the city, that they are economically efficient in terms of construction costs and future long-term operation and that they have a high architectural quality.
PDS is based in the city centre in Radniční domy (Town Hall Houses) in the close vicinity of the New Town Hall. “We already have a basic team but further interested persons experienced in the field of real estate, development and construction are welcome,” says Tomáš Veselý, deputy director of the Prague City Council director who is temporarily in charge of management of PDS.
“The role of PDS will be mostly a land-developer preparing municipal land for construction in the public interest, primarily for rental housing projects. PDS will prepare a concept and perform an approval process up to a planning permit and a building permit. The implementation stage itself should be carried out in collaboration with the private sector, cooperatives or construction communities,” adds Petr Hlaváček, deputy mayor.
Prospects of construction in the Czech city will be one of the topics of an event held by Stavební fórum at the beginning of the autumn conference season. The following experts will be discussing about the near future of the sector of construction and development as well as the whole Czech economy, both in details and in a wider context: Eva Zamrazilová (the Czech Fiscal Council), Radim Passer (Passerinvest Group), Josef Kotrba (Deloitte), Jiří Nouza (SPS) and Petr Hlaváček (the City of Prague). Discussion breakfast called “Česko 2020: hledání cest z krize” (Bohemia 2020: finding a way out of the crisis) takes place on Thursday on August 27 in the gallery of the Café Louvre from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.
