Waltrovka Mechanica

Waltrovka in Prague Jinonice is a former aircraft engine production facility of more than 169,000 sq m, which Penta is transforming to a contemporary urban development. The cost of the entire project is planned at more than EUR 200 million.

The site was derelict, but has a large development potential thanks to its location and size. Penta plans 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.

Mechanica is a set of three office buildings with a total of 33,500 sq m of office and retail space. It includes Walter, the former engine production plant, which is a listed structure, plus two new buildings whose style is also influenced by the original industrial architecture. The construction of the two new buildings and a comprehensive refurbishment of the Walter plant started in May 2016 and the first tenants will move in in the autumn of 2017. All three buildings are pre-certified as LEED Gold low-energy designs.
