I can't wait to see their new design space come to life, and I wish them all the best in their fantastic new office space,“ says Marek Pikaň, Leasing Negotiator of Skanska’s Commercial Development business unit in CEE.

Unique space for tenants and locals
Skanska received the Occupancy Permit for Port7 at the beginning of April and some of the tenants have already started their operation in their new offices, such as the eye clinic Oční centrum Praha and the IT company Manta Tools. Other companies, including Scott.Weber Workplaces and the financial group Direct, as well as services and amenities such as the OpenWine winery, Onegym fitness center, and Chuck & Frida restaurant, will soon open their premises. We are looking forward to adding Wikov Industry to our esteemed list of tenants in October 2023.
"Port7 is more than just an office project, it is a visionary development that will redefine the Holešovice district and its social and business scene. With a 17.000 square meters public park, a rejuvenated riverbank, and an abundance of dining and service options, it will offer both tenants and locals unparalleled opportunities to work, relax and connect with others. Moreover, the new underpass that connects the area to the rest of the district adds to the convenience and accessibility of the project. Furthermore, with the recent addition of Wikov Industry as a new tenant, we are thrilled to see that Port7 continues to attract companies that prioritize the well-being and productivity of their employees. Port7 is a testament to Skanska's commitment to creating sustainable and vibrant communities that positively impact the lives of all who interact with it. concludes Jana Prokopová, Leasing & Asset Director of Skanska’s Commercial Development business unit in CEE.
