Waltrovka in Prague Jinonice is a former aircraft engine production facility of more than 169,000 sq m, which Penta transformed into a contemporary urban development. The cost of the entire project was planned at more than EUR 200 million.
The site was derelict, but had a large development potential thanks to its location and size. Penta planned to build a mixed development there, containing office and residential buildings, as well as a recreational zone. The project includes three office facilities (Aviatica, Dynamica and Mechanica) and a large residential zone.
The Aviatica office building (27,000 sq. m. of lease space), whose construction was commenced in 2013, was completely leased before completion in September 2015. The EUR 51 million development boasts exceptional organic architecture and great accessibility. It is next to the Jinonice Metro station and within easy reach of the Prague ring road and the airport. At the prestigious Central and Eastern European Real Estate Quality Awards competition, Aviatica was awarded the two main prizes - The Best Building and The Best Administrative Building of The Year 2015.
