Second Phase of Karlín’s Futurama Business Park Fully Occupied
The developer Erste Group Immorent ČR has filled the second phase of the
Futurama Business Park administrative project, located in Prague’s Karlín
neighbourhood, with tenants. The development of the final phase of the
modern complex will commence in the third quarter of this year, to be completed
in roughly a year.
Current tenants, Deutsche Börse Services and Clearstream Operations
Prague from the Deutsche Börse Group, have expanded their operations by another
nearly 3,000 sq m. “We are happy that our tenants are prospering, that
they are happy here, and that this allows them to expand in our project.
We are also finding new tenants, including BASF, Panalpina, Doosan Lentjes,
mBank, and ACS Czech Republic,” said Tomáš Velemínský, Registered
Representative of Erste Group Immorent ČR. “The fact that reputable companies
are deciding for Futurama shows that the facility can satisfy the highest
requirements of today’s discerning clients,” added Tomáš Velemínský.
The third and final phase of the Futurama Business Park will be built
according to the standard of a nearly “zero energy consumption” building.
“We will use the most modern technologies for the third phase of the Futurama
project, as we first installed in our passive SILO office building in Vienna,
which we recently completed. By using geothermal bores and heat pumps, we
will save up to 70% of heating and cooling costs, attaining the lowest
operating costs for modern administrative buildings in the Czech
Republic. The building's extraordinary energy efficiency and
environmental friendliness has been documented by the fact that it has obtained
the highest possible level of BREEAM OUTSTANDING international certification,”
said Tomáš Velemínský.
Geothermal energy from bores that are nearly five kilometres long in
aggregate will be used as a source of cooling for the direct cooling of the
building, and as a source of heat for heat pumps for heating the building and
heating air for ventilating the building in winter.
The Futurama Business Park has been built in Prague, at Invalidovna, where
the Statistical Office was once located, and is presently one of the most
successful office projects in the metropolis. It owes its attractiveness
to its timeless architecture, the park concept which surrounds it with
greenery, excellent accessibility to the downtown, and minimal utility
In phase one, two office buildings forming a “U” were built, as well as a
glass building at the entrance plaza on Sokolovská Street. In phase two,
another two buildings forming a “U” were built. Between them is an
emphasised axis running perpendicular to Sokolovská Street, as the backbone of
the grounds. In phase three, a rectangular building will be erected,
closing the administrative centre facility off. After completion, the
Futurama Business Park, which has already won two prizes in the prestigious
Best of Realty poll, will comprise a total of 40,000 sq m of office
space. The aggregate investment will amount to three billion crowns.
