Site compliance with zoning plan

New development along these streets, especially facing onto Českobratrská St., will create high-quality street space; it may form part of the current block structure in the vicinity or it may be an interesting free-standing structure.

According to the currently valid zoning plan, the site (in the cadastral area Moravská Ostrava) is located in a mixed-use zone (residential and civic amenities); this zone is designated for residential purposes and civic amenities that are primarily integrated into typical urban buildings. The optimum use for the site would be the construction of a polyfunctional building (combining residential premises and civic amenities), though the decision is up to the investor. The site is located within the Moravská Ostrava urban heritage zone.

Site description

A new cultural quarter is being built in the vicinity of the site (on the opposite land).  Cultural and creative industries are key building blocks for all cities, and Ostrava is no exception. Ostrava has a rich and vibrant cultural life with a broad spectrum of institutions, artists and creative communities. Cultural and community projects are a natural and integral component of the City of Ostrava’s development-related activities.

The site is adjacent to a public cultural and community centre (PLATO)  and historic former city slaughterhouse which till 2021 is set to be transformed into a modern art gallery.The winner of the public international competition for this project was the KWK Promes studio from Poland, run by the globally renowned architect Robert Konieczny. The former slaughterhouse will be transformed into exhibition spaces for the PLATO contemporary art gallery, which (thanks to revolving walls) will also include an outdoor exhibition area. The six exhibition halls will be able to function either separately or together, as a single space. The building will also include offices, meeting rooms and a snack bar.

Close to the sites is the Nordica office building and one of the Czech Republic’s foremost performing arts schools – the Janáček Conservatory.
