It’s not clear whether this is by chance or by design, but a couple of Czech state institutions are looking to offload property. For starters, the Ministry of Interior wants to shed 117 properties, including some an old barracks in Klecany and a former factory in Kolin that’s currently used to do laundry for the the ministry. No, that’s not a joke.
Also, we read that plans to move the Charles University hospital in downtown Prague (second district) have been scuppered. This is a serious chunk of property, as the complex stretches across 13.5 hectares, but it’s in a seriously prime location. Anyone who was hoping to get their hands on the land for, say, a luxury residential scheme will probably have to look elsewhere.
