Pražská developerská společnost will take over the next phase of preparation of the Vltava Philharmonic Hall

The project of the new contemporary music center has successfully completed Stage 1, during which the need for the project and the suitability of the selected site were confirmed, the concept plan of the project, including the schedule and financial plan, was established, and an international architectural competition for the design of the Vltava Philharmonic Hall was announced. "With the publication of the winning design resulting from this competition, the project will move from the preparatory to the design part in Stage 2, during which the Vltava Philharmonic Hall will fall under the Pražská developerská společnost from autumn 2022 in terms of coordination. This will involve some relatively hard and long-term development work," says Martin Krupauer, Head of the Vltava Philharmonic Hall project team.

The aim of Stage 2 is to obtain project documentation and permits for the construction of the Vltava Philharmonic Hall. However, a key part of this stage is also project management in terms of preparation and setting up the operation. In the coming years, many expert issues will have to be addressed in connection with the ongoing design work, including the provision of consultancy and expert services for individual sub-areas of both technical and operational issues of the Vltava Philharmonic Hall project. Another key task is coordination with other plans and events in the locality related to the Vltava Philharmonic Hall, as well as the development of the entire area in relation to the parameters of the Bubny-Zátory study. All of these, especially infrastructural actions, should be consistent with the Vltava Philharmonic Hall project.

"From this point of view, the allocation of project management and coordination within the PDS appears to be the most appropriate. Moving the project under the PDS will guarantee maximum efficiency and flexibility with professional overlap and perception of the context for the surrounding area, which is necessary for the preparation of such a complex and significant project," Petr Hlaváček, Deputy Mayor of the City of Prague, supports this step for territorial development and the zoning plan.
