Basic facts about the non-residential building in the street Prvního pluku 17/320 in Prague 8 – Karlín

The building is situated in the subcentral area of Prague, in the dense part of the historical protected zone Karlín, in the direct proximity of the metro station Florenc. Transport accessibility is excellent here: The B and C metro lines and further tram and bus lines of the Prague integrated transport system are situated here, and the Prague city centre lies within the walking distance of approx. 10 minutes.

The building was constructed in 1887 as a corner building with the neo-renaissance façade. A distinct crown moulding traverses at the level of the 4th floor. This moulding is fringed with the neo-renaissance sgraffiti from the bottom side. The front side of the building is situated eastwards, the lateral side southwards.

Substantial constructional adaptation of the building was made in 1996 and the building was authorised for use as non-residential premises (i.e. as an office space).

Further significant constructional adaptations – reconstruction of the attic and extension of the south wing – were made during the years 2001 and 2002. The building increased in value considerably through this adaptation; to this end also greatly contributed the construction of a corner tower.

The last adaptation represents the construction of the hydraulic personal lift into the mirror of the staircase. The lift started its operation in 2003.

Currently 1 underground floor and 6 floors above ground are being used representing the total area of approx. 1 000 m²
