The first tenant in Skanska’s Praga Studios project in Karlín is Scott & Weber, who will operate fully equipped administrative premises with five-star services for lease.
The Praga Studios building, which is being constructed between the Pernerova and Křižíkova streets in Karlín, has its first tenant. Scott & Weber will transform 1,350 square meters in the property into their seventh office center Prague offering fully equipped offices, suitable both for individuals and companies. Scott & Weber is the Czech leader in operating fully equipped offices. The company will fill the whole top floor with offices with a five-star service for lease, designated to those interested in representative office space.
“Today, Karlín is a highly sought-after location for established companies as well as for independent professionals and start-ups. We are glad that thanks to Scott & Weber, Praga Studios will be able to offer a top-quality shared working environment for a wide range of future users. Coworking is becoming increasingly popular and we are happy that it will be available both in Visionary (Prague 7) and in Praga Studios (Prague 8),” says Marie Passburg, Managing Director of Skanska Property Czech Republic.
“The global trend of fully equipped offices is taking off also here in the Czech Republic, as is witnessed by the opening of Scott & Weber’s seventh office center in Prague offering fully equipped offices. I am thrilled that our newest center will be located in the excellent Praga Studios building, at the very heart of Karlín. Future users can look forward to offices in the sky in many ways resembling a penthouse – a spacious, sunny apartment with a terrace high above the city. Modern offices with large windows offered by Scott & Weber for lease for individuals and companies will be located on the highest floor of the building. This floor consists of an attractive complex with a terrace on the roof, an adjacent garden for sport, relaxation and entertainment, and naturally also a bicycle room with showers and dressing rooms as well as an atrium for social events. Scott & Weber provides not only five-star services to its clients so that they can concentrate on their business, but also regularly organizes various sports and cultural events; these factors play a very important role in the well-being of our tenants,” said Adam Zvada, founder and CEO of Scott & Weber, the largest Czech provider of fully equipped offices.
After its completion in Q2 2019, Praga Studios will offer almost 12,000 m2 of modern offices. This project, whose design and name both reflect the industrial tradition of this location, will combine business with art.
Marie Passburg adds: “We want to show that modern administrative buildings have a much greater potential than their current use suggests. This is why Praga Studios will include an atrium where concerts, theatre plays, and exhibitions will take place. The unique layout of the atrium will create a space that can be used as a stage and the atypical staircase will be used as auditorium for viewers. The atrium will be available also for the general public, not only the tenants.”
Skanska has designed the Praga Studios project to meet the highest environmental certification – LEED Platinum – as well as WELL certification, which focuses on the interior and evaluates its impact on the health and mental well-being of people working in the building.
Top-quality A-class administrative premises will be accompanied also by an extensive relaxation zones and a roof terrace with a view of Petřín and Prague Castle. Tenants will have access to a nearby garden belonging to the neighboring Corso Court project. The developer is preparing a modern application which will allow access to the services in the building and its surroundings. Employees of companies in Praga Studios will also be able to enjoy the wide offer of innovative gastronomy in Karlín.
