Topping out over the multifunctional LOOX apartment building
At the end of October, the V Invest developer company, which belongs to the CREDITAS group, successfully completed the building shell of the modern apartment building of LOOX Prosek Apartments at the intersection of Litoměřická and Vysočanská streets. The lifting up of the topping out, a ribboned tree, which is a symbol of happiness and protection of the house and its inhabitants, took place earlier than they originally planned.
"The fact that even today, when construction companies face a shortage of workers or materials, we manage construction faster is mainly due to the excellent construction organization by our general contractor, Strabag," says Ivo Segeťa, project manager at V Invest. According to him, faster construction will be appreciated not only by future inhabitants of the house, but also by people who live in the immediate vicinity of the building.
A total of 95 residential and non-residential units will be created on 11 floors, from small studio appartements, which are suitable, for example, as starting housing for young people, to generous four-bedroom units, which will be appreciated especially by families with children. Part of the project in the form of fully equipped housing units should also be intended for long-term rental housing.
The project will also include business units on the ground floor of the building. There will also be 10 commercial spaces with a total area of 860 m² available, intended for services to residents of the surrounding area. Completion of the entire project is planned for the last quarter of 2022.
The whole apartment building is designed as a block with two towers on the sides and 4 floors in the middle. “Our goal was not only to design a nice and functional house, but also to sensitively incorporate it into the locality. All the time we worked with the concept of two materials with free space between them. The whole building is thus a refreshing element in the surrounding buildings,” explains David Wittassek from the architectural studio of Qarta architektura, which was in charge of the LOOX project.
Close to the centre, shopping and nature
Thanks to its spatial solution, the house will be visually interesting, but most apartments will also have an enclosed balcony, balcony or terrace. The new apartments will be equipped with a number of quality materials and modern elements that customers require.
The apartment building will stand on the border of the new and old Prosek, the history of which dates back to the 11th century, which makes it the oldest of all districts of Prague 9. The location is one of the great advantages of the LOOX project. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Prosek metro station C and bus stops to Vysočany. In addition to a number of playgrounds and two large parks, there is also a shopping centre, kindergartens and primary schools, a general practitioner's office and a pharmacy within a 10-minute walk. Within 10 minutes by car there are three shopping centres, Aquapark and Na Bulovce Hospital.
