Svoboda & Williams has mediated the lease of 1,143 sq. m. of office space to the Czech branch of DPDgroup. The new Prague headquarters of this European provider of parcel services will be the administrative Nad Petruskou 1 Functionalist villa, located in a quiet part of Vinohrady (Prague 2) only a few steps away from Havlíčkovy Sady Park.

The First Republic era architects Tomáš Pražák and Pavel Moravec were the authors of this Functionalist villa. They also built the well-known U Hasičů building in Vinohrady. Tomáš Pražák’s grandson, whose company Stavby a reality CZ s.r.o. (www.stavbyareality.cz) owns the villa and who had previously worked with Svoboda & Williams, contacted us and requested advisory services concerning the future use of the villa. The current tenant’s lease was almost up, and Mr. Pražák was considering a financially difficult conversion back its original residential use. Finally, the he decided to offer the property for lease as an administrative building once again, and Svoboda & Williams soon managed to find a new tenant – the Czech branch of the DPDgroup.

“DPD CZ contacted us with a request for office space for lease in Prague 2, and they emphasized that they preferred offices with character rather than what is found in a standard administrative building. We analyzed the company’s needs, and Nad Petruskou 1 fit their criteria perfectly. Before DPD CZ move in, the interior of the property will undergo a renovation that will take into account the new tenant’s needs as well as the historical value of the building,” says Karin Konrádová from Svoboda & Williams.

“The quality of our services is guaranteed by our employees, and therefore we wanted find the best office space for them. The open space trend is behind us and closed office environments are becoming popular, because they offer more privacy for individuals and allow groups to become closer thanks to their well-thought out interior plans. DPD also liked this idea and decided to lease the villa, which also has a garden for employees to relax in,” explains Miloš Malaník, general director of DPD CZ.

The Nad Petruskou 1 villa offers office space on five floors, an elevator, large terraces, and beautiful views of Havlíčkovy Sady Park, the neighborhood of Vršovice, and other locations. It stands on a peaceful dead-end street only a seven-minute walk from a tram stop.
