The Masaryk Station revitalization project was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Under the leadership of one of the best architects of this era, the design studio has created an extraordinary work, in all aspects fully respecting the history of the territory, the existing development and urban situation in the vicinity of Masaryk Station.
Thanks to our project, the area around Masaryk Railway Station should become not only an important traffic hub in Prague, with a connection to the airport, but also – and predominantly – a meeting point, where people will not just pass through, but spend quality time, meeting for work or entertainment. It will change into a place that will connect the neighbourhoods for pedestrians from Florenc to Žižkov – a place that builds on its past and at the same time brings new dynamics and opportunities for use.
The revitalization of the Masaryk Station area will be carried out in several stages, when the current undeveloped brownfield site will be gradually revived and open to public again. The first phase of development is planned to be completed in 2023 and completion of the whole area is expected by 2025. The project will in total offer up to 100,000 sq. m. of the highest quality of the office and retail space accompanied by some residential elements and a wide range of public amenities, green areas and relaxation zones.
