Prague will buy the former Orionka depot in Vinohrady from Dopravní podniku for around 190 million crowns. It ceased to serve its purpose in the mid-1950s and in 2009 it was included among the so-called surplus property. The sale of the dilapidated depot was approved by the city council as the General Assembly of the Transport Company at the beginning of April.

“It is about the fact that the Transport Company cannot transfer the land to the capital in any other simple way, that is, it is implemented as a sale, which must be approved by another shareholder within the scope of the general meeting, which happened today,” said the deputy of Prague of the mayor, Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates).

Prague will now buy an abandoned property in a lucrative part of the city. The dilapidated building should then become a cultural center.

“We will be looking for a tenant who would rent this building for approximately 10 years, partially renovate it and use it as a cultural center,” said Jiří Pospíšil (TOP 09), Deputy Mayor of Prague.

The area should now serve as a place for spending free time. According to Jiří Pospíšil, Prague’s deputy for culture, but with regard to the surrounding residential development.

“That means, the art should probably be visual rather than musical. I can’t quite imagine that there should be any open air concerts and so on when it’s under construction, but of course all that will still be subject to debate,” added Pospíšil.

The area of ​​the former depot is currently partially rented. This applies to offices, rooms in a building or rooms for setting up office and storage space, as well as areas intended for parking.
