A striking golden tower, which forms part of the planned Zaha Hadid redevelopment at Florenc, has passed its Environmental Impact Assessment. Although it is an important milestone in its approval, the building still must be granted land and construction permits before building commences.

Originally, the investors, Penta Group, schedules the start of building for this year. However, with the two remaining permits still to be passed, the project has been delayed. 

"If everything goes well, we'd like to start building late next year. It should be done within two years," said Penta spokesperson, Ivo Mravinac.

The multipurpose tower building will be seven to nine storeys high, with 31,000 square meters of floor space. This building makes up only the first phase of a enormous project that later plans to bridge the railway station, linking Florence to Hybernska and Opletalova.
