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 1,300 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).
