The individual buildings between Skloněná, U Kloubových domů and Pod Balkánem streets will be gradually reconstructed into apartment buildings. In the short term before the reconstruction, one of the buildings and the adjacent restaurant will serve as a city hotel. Last year, the city announced a tender for the purchase of short-term hostels, but the municipality did not find any suitable premises on the open market.
The complex will offer about 175 new apartments. Housing Councilor Adam Zábranský (Pirates) said that two houses would be transferred to the administration of the City Hall of Prague 9. The reconstruction is preliminarily estimated at 126 million crowns. Part of it would probably be paid by Prague 9.
According to Councilor Jan Chabr (TOP 09), the municipality considered that the property would be removed from the share capital of DPP, but this proved to be legally complicated. The city also considered a shift, which eventually came to an end.
The current management of the metropolis wants to expand the city’s housing stock, which has been reduced to a minimum by privatization. The municipality now has about 7,000 flats, another about 23,000 are managed by the city district. They decide on their leases or privatizations themselves. According to an analysis by KPMG from 2018, after 1991, 194,000 flats became the property of Prague. The shortage of flats and the rise in housing prices is one of the most discussed problems that the metropolis is solving.
