For example, flats should be for people who are not socially disadvantaged but do not have access to their own housing, or for important occupations such as teachers, firefighters or police officers. “Land usable requirements that we have set for pilot projects of federal housing,” said committee chairman Pavel Zelenka (Prague Sobě). According to him, the municipality is now waiting for negotiations with the city districts. “We would like to agree on a framework for cooperation on these projects. The preparation of materials is underway in order to compete with the partners who will carry out the development, “he added.
The Prague Development Company (PDS) conducted a geodetic survey, dendrological survey or geological survey of all plots. Studies of possible housing construction and buildability of land have been created. PDS also received comments from companies, and regional engineering networks run through selected plots of land.
The largest is located in U Plynárny Street in Prague 4-Michle and has an area of 11,319 square meters. According to the presentation of the PSD, which she presented at the committee meeting, there could be about forty flats. However, the land is on a steep slope, it is unmaintained and difficult to access. According to director Petr Urbanek, some of his focus will need to be done.
There is also a second plot of land in Michle, namely in Ohradní Street. Here the city has to deal with similar problems as in the second Michel project. In addition, there are some engineering networks that could complicate the construction of the house.
An extensive project could be carried out in Prague 8 in Budínova Street. On a plot of 2324 square meters, there could be a house with 69 apartments and a gross floor area of 6850 square meters. However, the area is burdened by a building closure for the construction of the inner ring road. PSD has already applied to the municipality for its cancellation. “It seems that it was there because of a historical solution that will be overcome,” Urbanek said.
In the ninth part of the city, there is a plot of land in Vysočanská Street. “We consider this to be a plot of land relatively suitable for the federal housing project,” Urbánek said. The plot has an area of 3246 square meters and the house could have 16 apartments. The last place considered is the land in Lipence, which offers space for five apartments. There are buildings on the plot that would have to be demolished before.
Support for cooperative and federal housing is expected for the city to provide its land for the construction of an apartment building through the so-called right of construction for up to 99 years. It would then be based on either a cooperative founded by the municipality together with a private partner, or special civic associations, inspired by the German so-called baugruppe. In both cases, the land will be purchased by the municipalities only after the house itself has been repaid.
