Parkview, the modern administrative complex being developed by Skanska in Prague 4, has its first tenant. A quarter of the building has been leased by IWG, a company that will operate its Spaces co-working center there. The construction of the Parkview project with nearly 16,000 sq m of top-level office space commenced in September 2018 and will be completed in Q2 2020.
Following the success of its City Green Court building (2012), Skanska is returning to Prague 4. Its new Parkview project is located opposite the Pankrác Central Park, on Pujmanové Street. Once completed, in Q2 2020, the nine-story complex designed by the leading international architectural studio Richard Meier & Partners will offer nearly 16,000 sq m of modern office space. IWG has become the first tenant, having rented nearly 4,000 sq m on the ground, first, and second floors for its Spaces coworking center.
“Coworking premises currently serve as a popular supplement to offices and we are glad that they will be available at Parkview through Spaces. This will gain us the requisite flexibility for other tenants, as well, as they will be able to use the premises for meetings or when they need a short-term solution for extending the capacity of their own offices, etc. Our project combines a modern top-level environment with many spaces for relaxation where building occupants will be able to meet casually, whether it be the generous lobby filled with plants or the beautiful roof terrace boasting a bar, a barbecue, and a pleasant place to sit,” says Alexandra Tomášková, Managing Director of Skanska Property Czech Republic.
“The network of Spaces centers has been growing all over the world at the same pace at which interest in co-working premises grows. We are happy to be able to offer this dynamic and creative work environment to clients here, in the Czech Republic. Next to the center in the Albatros Building on Národní třída, Parkview will be the second Spaces center in Prague, with more to follow. The design and technological rendering make the new, modern Parkview building a symbol of progress, as are the workspaces at Spaces. Furthermore, it is located in an interesting business locale that is suitable for developing a Spaces community in which corporations, freelancers, and start-ups can meet and exchange ideas and experience and initiate new cooperation,” adds Karel Pelán, IWG’s Country Manager for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Parkview’s most striking feature is its white façade. The pure white area is regularly interrupted by balconies located from the second to the eighth story. They serve as an aesthetic feature that also has a practical use – the tenants on the given floor can use them for relaxation. Thanks to the U-shaped ground plan and glass panels on the façade, offices in Parkview will enjoy nearly 100% natural lighting for most of the day.
Skanska is building Parkview such that the building would obtain the highest environmental certification – LEED Platinum – for its efficient operation and minimum environmental impact, as well as a WELL certification that awards points for a high-quality and healthy work environment for a building’s tenants.
Parkview is also designed as a smart building, in which digitization of its design and construction process in the BIM system will facilitate its subsequent operation. The developer will make available to its tenants the Connected by Skanska system with its specially developed mobile application that will allow for effective and simple access to the building and feature all services offered in the building and its vicinity.
