On Wednesday 13 September, the construction of the long-awaited Pod Hády Quarter in the Maloměřice and Obřany districts of Brno symbolically began with the ceremonial tapping of the foundation stone. The real estate group Trikaya began preparing the extensive project on the site of the brownfield after the dilapidated Ergon factory in 2010. The total investment will exceed four billion crowns.

"Those interested will soon be able to buy flats in a great location within easy reach of nature. The Čtvrť Pod Hády project is packed with innovations and energy solutions that herald the future of housing not only in Brno, but also in the whole country," said Dalibor Lamka, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Trikaya, at the ceremony.

The first stage of the project will offer a total of 167 apartments in eight buildings and 186 parking spaces. The launch of the sale of apartments in the first phase is planned for the end of September. The first residents will be able to move into the new apartments at the end of 2025. The Pod Hády district, which will comprise over 1,000 apartments in apartment buildings and townhouses in several stages, will gradually be complemented by a range of shops and services, sports facilities, a playground and a new kindergarten.

The project has been deliberately designed to minimise the need for car traffic on the surface, creating a peaceful and safe environment with plenty of green spaces and pedestrian streets. Convenience for residents will be provided by spacious underground garages with ample parking for the entire neighborhood.

The project, which is being built on the brownfield site of the never-operated Ergon factory, is designed with an emphasis on green solutions. It takes some of the recyclable materials from the original development and, thanks to the use of modern technology, the operation of the district will be sustainable and allow for water efficiency. The buildings will feature green roofs and photovoltaic panels.

The residential district is located in the strategic location of Maloměřice and Obřany, which is characterised by a unique connection between the city and nature. In close proximity to the Pod Hády quarter there is the Růžena's quarry and the Hádecká planinka nature reserve, which is part of the Moravian Karst Protected Landscape Area.

The architects from the Kuba & Pilař studio, recipients of the prestigious Architects of the Year 2022 award for their outstanding contribution to architecture, have approached the urban concept of the Pod Hády Quarter in such a way that the layout of the individual buildings allows for a connection with the surrounding landscape landmarks and the coexistence of the natural and urban world. Architects Makovský & partners also participated in the third stage of the project.

"The garden allows you to get in touch with the sky, the sun, the wind, the soil. There is no need to make a big circus out of greenery. When it gets too hot and every corner is filled with some kind of entertainment and activity, the peace disappears, which for me personally is the most important intention we want to bring to the place," adds Ferdinand Leffler from the Flera studio, which is behind the landscaping of the Pod Hády quarter.
