Vysočanský mlýn has come to life. The three new cranes that now dominate the complex cannot be ignored by passers-by.
We have completed the earthworks and set the foundations in place. The first buildings already have the foundation pads, and the concreting of the monolithic frameworks has also begun in full swing.
In July, Metrostav Development commenced the construction of the first 241 flats of the Vysočanský mlýn, and the MINT Investment realty fund purchased the whole first stage of construction. It will offer flats for rent. The additional construction phase, during which 218 flats for sale will be constructed, will start next year.
We are counting down to the opening.
Work on preparing construction continues at the site of the former Odkolek bakery, and we continue to fulfil our promises. One of those was to treat the site with respect, which is why we are preserving the original character of the building as well as pieces of history itself.
Besides the administrative building and chimney, we realize the historical value of the south façade and we unanimously agreed to incorporate it into the new residential project. However, it’s first necessary to structurally secure it so the façade survives until construction can begin. The entire south façade has thus been reinforced by 90 tons of iron.
We also promised to preserve the canopy that connects the administrative building with the bakery that we had repeatedly used to meet neighbours living in the area to discuss the future of Vysočanský mlýn. To complete the demolition of the bakery the canopy rests upon, we had to reinforce it with long beams to temporarily support it so it can stand independently. Both elements were anchored, and now demolition work could continue.
We carefully consider every project beforehand at Metrostav Development, and Vysočanský mlýn is no exception.
