Parking garage at the Regional Authority

The City’s plans to build parking garages are a response to the current lack of parking spaces in the selected locations as well as being guided by the City’s vision of prioritizing eco-friendly forms of transport within Ostrava urban core.

The aim of the city is to develop Park + Ride (P+R) and Park + Go (P+G) services in the central part of the Ostrava metropolitan area in the form of paid parking. Therefore, the city has prepared PARKING GARAGES PROJECTS for which it is looking for developers.

We offer a stable business environment – the City of Ostrava will not support free parking provision in the vicinity. We require developers to respect the already prepared architectural solution and project parameters.


WHY WE WANT IT

A lack of parking spaces in the vicinity (the city centre and the surrounding area):

    • currently: deficit of 2 000 parking spaces
    • within 10 years: forecast ↑ deficit up to 3 000 parking spaces

 

  • ↑ demand for parking – reasons:

    • the central municipal district has around 39 000 inhabitants
      • residential zones: parking mainly for residents
      • non-resident parking: demand is much higher than supply
    • the area is home to numerous major companies, institutions, government authorities, and civic amenities
    • current parking areas will become the sites of new buildings
    • vacant spaces will be filled with new buildings of new functions
    • new projects of national/international importance have been prepared/ built within the city centre (a new concert hall, a new modern art gallery)

Parking garage at the Regional Authority

A new multifunctional parking garage on parcels nos. 2634/8 and 2634/47 covering a total area of 9,400 m² in the Moravská Ostrava cadastral area. The vacant lot is located in a built-up area at the Moravian-Silesian Regional Authority. next to 28. října Street = a main arterial road into the city centre with 15,000 cars per day.

The project will provide parking for nearby institutions (the Moravian-Silesian Regional Authority, Tax Authority for the Moravian-Silesian Region, District Social Security Office, City of Ostrava Cultural Centre, P. Bezruč Theatre) and it will also be used by visitors to the city centre.

In the upcoming years the surrounding area will become the site of Ostrava’s new concert hall designed by Steven Holl Architects from New York with capacity of 1,200 – 1,400 people and the Moravian-Silesian Research Library. The arterial road will undergo a complete reconstruction as well (which will greatly improve facilities for cyclists and pedestrians).
