UBM Development Czechia has successfully completed the rough construction of the Astrid Garden residential project in Prague 7 - Holešovice, where 138 apartments and two commercial units are being built. Construction of Astrid Garden has been underway since November 2021 and is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2024. The sale of the project, designed by renowned architectural studio Bogle Architects, is being handled exclusively by the real estate agency Lexxus Norton. 

The Astrid Garden residential complex in Prague 7, comprising seven new residential buildings and one original building undergoing sensitive renovation, has reached the stage of rough construction. The installation of the building services, façade work and interior finishing works are now underway. Care will also be given to the planting of the greenery, which is an important feature of the whole site, both on the roofs and in the communal courtyard garden. "The construction of the Astrid Garden project is progressing smoothly, in accordance with the schedule. Our clients can view the construction progress from the third-floor terrace of the neighbouring Astrid Offices building, which we completed in 2021 and where we also have our office," says Alice Slámová, Marketing and Sales Director of UBM Development Czechia, adding: "In terms of sales, there is a lot of interest in energy-efficient apartments in the lucrative district of Prague's Holešovice. Currently, almost a quarter of the apartments are sold out and we are registering demand for small units."

A total of 138 apartments are being built in U Průhonu Street in layouts from 1 + kk to 4 + kk with living areas from 29.5 to 107 sqm, including two duplexes with their own entrance. The project includes cellars and parking spaces in a two-storey underground garage. The interiors, which will be carried out to a high standard, will include wooden floors and external blinds in large-format windows with wooden frames and triple glazing. The top floors will be prepared for air conditioning, while the A and B buildings will have heat recovery units working on a system to recover heat from the extracted air and help reduce heating costs. Residents will also be able to use a bike washroom, workshop and shared office. Two commercial units will be located on the ground floor of the renovated building facing U Průhon Street. UBM is building Astrid Garden with sustainability in mind. The residential buildings are being built with BREEAM environmental certification and include a number of sustainable solutions, such as electricity recovery in the building lifts or irrigation of the greenery using rainwater that will be collected in storage tanks.
