Kutná Hora will offer for sale the former Organa organ factory. The dilapidated building could be used for apartments. The basic price has been set at CZK 6.5 million, the town will take into account the planned use of the building. Mayor Lukáš Seifert (ODS) told reporters today that it would be unacceptable for the building to become, for example, a hostel.

The city will publish the intention of the sale, in which it will set out the conditions. According to the mayor, the fate of the building should become clearer in about a month. If the council does not like the plans of potential buyers, it may not sell the building. "We don't want a hostel there. It will be a continuation of the residential development that currently surrounds it," Seifert said.

The city originally considered converting the building on Sportovců Street into a kindergarten, but eventually backed out. The building is in poor technical condition. The question is whether reconstruction will be possible or whether the new owner will have to demolish it. The sale was previously approved by the council.

The Organa company was founded in the early 1950s after the nationalisation and merger of the Kutná Hora organ builders Josef Melzer and Jan Tuček. Organa was not an independent factory, but a branch of the woodworking cooperative Český Brod. After 1989, former employees continued repairing and building the organ in Kutná Hora.
