Jiřího z Poděbrad Square will eventually see a redesign. The square will be redesigned under a single concept, with new greenery, an irrigation system, water retention measures, and a renovated fountain. The traditional open-air market will move further from the primary school, the playground will be extended and fitted with new jungle gyms and water attractions. There will be a new accessible entrance to the underground and the entire station will be refurbished. The project is expected to commence in the second half of 2022.
The First Deputy Mayor of Prage, Petr Hlaváček, and the Mayor of Prague 3 district, Jiří Ptáček, today signed a memorandum confirming their interest in successful implementation of the project to redesign Jiřího z Poděbrad Square. Prague 3 took care of the project documentation and a construction permit while the City of Prague has committed to finance the project and allocated funds in its budget for this purpose. The cost is expected to reach approximately 270 million crowns including VAT.
Jiřího z Poděbrad is one of the busiest squares in the capital city, yet it has long been left in unsatisfactory condition. Its redesign has been discussed for more than twenty years. The latest project has been drawn up over the past two years.
