The largest housing developer in the Czech republic

We have been building a new Prague for you for more than a quarter of a century

  • Thanks to CENTRAL GROUP, more than 40,000 people have a new home
  • More than 16.000 apartments, houses and plots of land sold in 180 successfully completed projects
  • We have no need for bank loans because we reinvest all the revenue we earn into the development of the company
  • We do not participate in any public tenders nor receive any public grants and we pay hundreds of millions of Czech crowns in taxes to the Czech government annually
  • Every year we contribute many tens of millions of Czech crowns towards charitable purposes and public constructions (renovation of historical monuments, development of transport and technical infrastructure, construction of new kindergartens, planting of public greenery, decontamination of brownfields etc.)

We are planning 30,000 new apartments throughout Prague

  • We own about 1.5 million m2 of brownfields and plots intended for the construction of more than 30,000 new apartments throughout Prague
  • We develop entire new urban quarters and smaller, exclusive residential projects
  • We focus mainly on transforming large neglected brownfields in Prague into highly livable places that are also a great addition to their neighbourhood
  • Of all the companies on the market, we purchase the largest quantity of brownfields and land for housing construction, which we finance directly from our own resources resulting in immediate payment when the purchase contract is signed

We work with the best architects

  • For the designs of all our projects, we always organize architectural competitions or workshops and we have our own team of 60 very experienced architects and engineers
  • On selected major projects, we collaborate with the best Czech architects and together we develop entirely new quarters in Prague
  • For our upcoming project New Žižkov Center in Prague 3, we organized a major architectural competition that attracted 98 architectural studios from 30 countries around the world, including such world-renowned architects as Sou Fujimoto (Japan), Richard Meier (USA) and Ian Ritchie (United Kingdom) – the jury of experts chose a design submitted by the renowned Czech-British architect Eva Jiřičná
  • For revitalizing brownfields and developing large units of land, we cooperate with the renowned German urbanist, Peter Gero, who was in charge of the development of the highly acclaimed HafenCity district in Hamburg

Our vision

„For more than a quarter of a century, CENTRAL GROUP has provided new homes for over 40,000 people. I myself live in one of our locations and I am glad to see people satisfied with the homes we have built. We would like to build not just appealing and high-quality buildings, but also create working and vibrant urban quarters. But above all we would like to create wonderful places for modern living and in doing so help in the development of Prague, which simply cannot live only off of its glorious past.“
