The Nové Lauby Residential Project

WE ARE ANNOUNCING A CALL FOR INVESTORS

The city is looking for a co-investor for the construction of a new building in the historic city centre with flats, underground parking area and business premises. The investment in the construction of the Nové Lauby residential building will be distributed between the city and a private investor who will build the building.

The city guarantees the subsequent purchase of two of the five houses and the parking area for tenants and the public. The private investor will own 3 blocks of flats, non-residential units and a corresponding number of parking spaces.

The selection procedure for the investor has 3 phases:

    1. The first phase is about EXPRESSING INTEREST. Potential investors MUST apply to the selection procedure no later than on AUGUST 20 this year! Applicants DO NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE ANY SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS (e.g. demonstration of qualifications, references, price quotations, etc.). It is ONLY NECESSARY to express interest in the public contract, e.g.: “I am interested in participating in the selection procedure for the public contract Blok Nové Lauby” + state the applicant’s identification data. It is NECESSARY to express interest, but NOT BINDING. Thus, applicants do not have to participate in other phases of the public contract if they subsequently reconsider their intention.
    2. A qualification phase will then take place in September
    3. and the submission of price offers will take place from October to November this year.

Location

This is a vacant space, plot No 160 in cadastral area Moravská Ostrava with an area of 3,188 m2. The advantage of this rewarding piece of land is its location in the central part of the city between Velká, Muzejní, Pivovarská and extended Dlouhá streets in the immediate vicinity of Masaryk Square (Ostrava’s central square). It is a very attractive location with excellent community amenities. The solved area is part of the city monument zone.

The attractiveness of the location is boosted by its direct access to public transport and a rich variety of cultural and social life in the immediate vicinity – including the nearby Antonín Dvořák Theatre and the Puppet Theatre as well as events held at the neighbouring Černá Louka (Black Meadow) exhibition centre.

The University of Ostrava’s Faculty of Fine Arts makes a major contribution to the vibrant cultural, artistic and musical life of the city centre. Till 2022 a new complex of university buildings will be created at the Černá Louka (Black Meadow) exhibition centre, providing state-of-the-art facilities for the Faculty of Fine Arts as well as a health/fitness/sports complex that will be used not only by students, but also by the general public.
