The AFI City 1 office building in Prague´s Vysočany has reached full occupancy with the arrival of new tenants. Logistic company Hegelmann Transporte is planning to relocate its domestic headquarters here.

Since Škoda Auto also used the option to expand the existing premises, AFI City 1 is now 100% occupied. Other premises are leased to the specialists in interior design and carpentry solutions Nüssli (CZ) and the French pharmaceutical company Pierre Fabre, as well as to the operator of the self-service restaurant Delirest as a newcomer among tenants.

The Hegelmann Group is a family business from Bruchsal, Germany, with a focus on complex logistics. Since its foundation in 1998, it has gradually grown into a global company operating throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. Hegelmann Transporte specializes in the Central European market. In Vysočany, they will occupy a total of 1,867 sqm of office space on two different floors.

Car manufacturer Škoda Auto has gradually contracted nine floors in AFI City 1 from 2022. These are used by IT specialists, the non-profit educational institute 42 Prague or the software company Digiteq.

"Creating the kind of tenant mix that we succeeded in at AFI City 1 was a challenging but exciting process. We are looking forward to the coming months, during which work on custom fit-outs will take place," comments Kateřina Holická, Asset Manager at AFI Europe.

The AFI City 1 administrative building is part of a newly emerging multifunctional district on the Vysočany brownfield near the Kolbenova metro station. The building with BREEAM Excellent green certification is 75 meters high and offers 17,300 sqm of offices. These are complemented by space for retail, an underground parking lot with a capacity of 300 spaces and a bicycle storage room, including facilities for cyclists.
