135 metres

135 metres is to be the height of Top Tower, a project Czech developer Trigema is planning in Prague’s Nové Butovice district.

This would make the building the tallest in the Czech Republic, surpassing the current holder of that title, the 111m AZ Tower in Brno. The most distinctive feature of the mainly residential project will be a taller structure embedded in the 125m main tower designed to resemble a rusting, shipwrecked tanker. This is intended to symbolise impending environmental disaster, while the plants growing through it will represent nature reclaiming human creation as its own. A lift is to run through the structure providing public access to the top and the main tower’s roof garden. The main tower will mostly comprise rental apartments with shops and services on the ground and first floors, while the pedestal section will contain offices, a multifunctional cultural centre and also a roof garden. Top Tower is to be located on a new 1 km pedestrian zone running between the Nové Butovice and Hůrka metro stations and through Sluneční náměstí square. It has been designed by architect Tomáš Císař of Prague studio Black n’ Arch as well as world-famous artist and sculptor David Černý. “We have been preparing the Top Tower project for more than two years, with the final version having been arrived at after eight other alternative designs had been drawn up. During this time, we have collected and are still collecting input from experts, state and local authorities, and, of course, local residents, whose representatives have already been and will continue to attend a number of public consultations,” commented Marcel Soural, the chairman of the board of Trigema. The developer is aiming for LEED ‘Gold’ certification for the building. It has yet to reveal if it has so far received any permits, but hopes to begin the construction work in 2021. According to the first estimates, investment costs will come to CZK 2 bln (app. EUR 77.5 mln).
