Primark announced as retail tenant at The Flow Building in Prague’s Wenceslas Square

Flow East, the developer behind The Flow Building (formerly The Flower Building) in Wenceslas Square, has confirmed that Primark will be the sole retail tenant for the Chapman Taylor-designed, mixed-use building in Prague when it opens in 2020.

The building will house Primark’s first store in the Czech Republic, forming part of the successful retailer’s expansion throughout Central and Eastern Europe. Primark is also the anchor tenant for another Chapman Taylor-designed landmark building – the award-winning City Plaza in Wuppertal, Germany – which opened in April 2019.

The Flow Building will provide seven floors of prestigious office space, three levels of flagship retail and two basement levels of parking on an important corner site on Wenceslas Square.

Designed and developed to respect the urban, historical and social significance of such a prominent location, the 3-D facade system is a first for the Czech Republic.

The project is also sustainable and energy-efficient, using intelligent, integrated building technical systems. Chapman Taylor's Prague studio designed this high-profile office and retail development.
