TWO TOWERS, CALLED THE PRAGUE EYE TOWERS, ARE TO MEASURE 139 AND 128 METRES. THAT WOULD MAKE THEM THE TALLEST IN THE COUNTRY. SO FAR THAT TITLE IS HELD BY BRNO WITH THE AZ TOWER AT 111 METRES.

Prague 11’s consent on building the tallest planned sky-scraper in the Czech Republic depends on building a second entrance to the Chodov metro station (e.g. in the form of highcapacity lifts). Without doing so the municipal district won’t give its approval for the building. Another condition is extending the park towards the D1 Motorway. The two towers should employ almost 5000 people. The investor presented the plan for the highest Czech skyscraper several years ago. In 2008 they published a study which counted on building one of the towers at 190 metres. Later PPF decided for two smaller constructions.

Currently the tallest building in the country is the AZ Tower in Brno at 111 metres. In Prague the tallest building is City Tower at 109 metres and was originally built for Czechoslovak Radio. 

According to the project‘s web pages it should start next year with a completion date set for 2018. The building should rise from the area between the Chodov Shopping Centre and the D1 Motorway. Both buildings are to have an ellipsoid ground plan and should chiefly contain office space, though there will also be a shop with food, a café or a restaurant. They will have 33 and 30 storeys. The taller tower will measure 138.8 metres and its telecommunications antennae will make it 152.6 metres. There will be underground parking for 900 cars.
