Urban architecture and nature in the heart of the city
As general contractor for Revitalis, PORR executed the Prager Carrée project, including planning the frame and the building services. With around 8,500 people passing through every day, Dresden’s Prager Strasse is the busiest high street in eastern Germany. Four residential buildings, six to seven storeys high and featuring additional retail space, are harmoniously arranged around a sheltered, leafy inner courtyard. The construction pit was already in place. It was created in 1999 as part of the development measures around Dresden’s main railway station. The site is enclosed on all sides by tunnels, the outer walls of which – except for the west side – also make up the walls of the construction pit. The east-west tunnel system runs alongside the southern site boundary with the northern double carriageway on the project site itself.
The ground floor and parts of the first floor and the first lower floor on Prager Strasse and Wiener Platz are
occupied by retail spaces. A total of 241 flats with approx. 30m² to 180m² of living space have been created in the other areas and on the upper floors. The two-storey underground car park has a total of 327 parking spaces. The two basement levels, each with around 7,300m² of gross floor area (GFA), also contain the building services rooms and tenants’ cellars. The ground floor, with a total of 4,900m² GFA, is dedicated to retail spaces along Prager Strasse and Wiener Platz, and eleven entrances, each with its own staircase and lift. An average of 42 residential units per floor are accommodated on approx. 17,000m² GFA from the first to the fifth floor. The sixth floor is a penthouse with a gross floor area of around 2,600m². A total of 21 spacious roof terrace flats facing Wiener Platz were constructed here. All the other flats have a balcony or, if they are on the ground floor, a terrace with a share of the garden.
