JRD Development completed its largest residential project in Prague's Strašnice district. 156 flats and 1320 sqm of commercial space were built in the energy-efficient complex of three buildings. The project, called Green Port Strašnice, has already been approved and is almost sold out, the developer announced.

JRD Development, a member of the JRD Group, completed the construction of the energy-efficient Green Port Strašnice project. Its largest residential complex so far includes three houses with a green courtyard and relaxing elements. The project, which has almost 1,000 sqm of green roofs, has only four apartments left.

The Green Port Strašnice residential complex is located on the site of the former headquarters of the Czech Maritime Shipping: the names of the individual houses are therefore inspired by the maritime theme, which is also reflected in the design of the common interior spaces. Most of the 156 flats have a front garden, loggia, balcony or terrace. The project also includes 1,320 sqm of commercial space for shops and services. In addition, the owners will have available a carriage/cycle room, ample facilities for cyclists (bike racks, outdoor car wash or service station) and underground parking with the possibility of installing charging stations for electric vehicles.

Green Port Strašnice is characterized by the use of natural materials and sustainable technologies that are environmentally friendly and ensure a healthy indoor microclimate. The basic standards of equipment, therefore, include quality insulating windows with triple glazing or an automatically controlled ventilation system with heat recovery, which changes the exhaled air into fresh air.

"In addition, 920 sqm of green roofs cover the individual buildings. These make a significant contribution to absorbing dust particles, improving sound and thermal insulation, regulating the ambient temperature, reducing rainwater runoff into the sewerage system and also contributing to local biodiversity. An interesting environmental element in the project are the boxes for the common swift, built directly into the insulation of the individual apartment buildings," explains Pavel Krumpár, JRD's commercial director, and adds: "We have seen a lot of interest in the project: there are currently only four apartments left. Especially nowadays, when we are all struggling with the energy crisis, buyers appreciate the true meaning of energy-efficient operation."
