The City of Prague ended plans for the construction of ramps leading to parking below the Savarin complex being developed by Crestyl. The decision, which clears the way to make the lower half of Wenceslas square a real pedestrian zone, required the city to create alternative access routes for automobile access to the underground parking. As a result, work on the reconstruction of the public space on the lower half of the square should be able to get underway next spring. "It's an example of successful cooperation for the benefit of citizens of the district," said Prague 1's mayor Pavel Čižinský. "Constructive and fair negotiations with the developer made it possible for us to find a far more sensitive alternative than bringing hundreds more cars onto the square."

"We really are pleased to have found a common solution that will be the best for the public and for residents in the center," said Simon Johnson of Crestyl. "It wasn't our idea to build ramps on Vaclavske naměsti. The parking solution, in harmony with the city's master plan, was part of the architectural competition 15 years ago for creating a new look for the square." Crestyl bought the Savarin project three years ago.
