Ostrava in the Light
of the Largest CTP Warehouse
in the Czech Republic
CTP is the largest and most sustainable developer of industrial parks in the Czech Republic,
and its activities extend deep into the Moravian-Silesian region. The construction of the largest
CTP warehouse in the country is currently underway in Ostrava, located in CTPark Ostrava Hrušov.
Vojtěch Peřka, Senior Business Developer at CTP, told us more about the region and the new project.
CTP has been operating in Ostrava for almost
20 years. What brought your company here?
A rich industrial tradition and excellent conditions
for company growth brought us to Ostrava. Our
goal is to provide our clients with quality and flexible
facilities that enable them to operate efficiently while
promoting future growth, and Ostrava is the ideal
place for this. The city is becoming a hub for innovative
companies, which are developing very quickly
thanks to the openness of the local governments and
institutions. Last year alone, we opened three research
and development centres in Ostrava.
We want our premises to serve
as efficiently as possible, including
lower energy costs.
Republic, offering a total of 94,000 sqm of industriallogistics space. The construction began in May of this
year and takes the form of an extension of the existing
building. The handover of the property is scheduled
for the second half of 2024.
Will the new warehouse join in the category
of highly sustainable CTP buildings?
Absolutely. We are targeting high BREEAM certification
for all industrial properties and we are preparing the
roofs for photovoltaic coverage. It's a responsibility
to the environment and to our clients. We want our
premises to serve as efficiently as possible, including
lower energy costs. At CTPark Ostrava Hrušov, one of
our new clients is committed to the highest possible
sustainability and the lowest possible CO2 footprint,
and we are very happy to deliver this for them.
You mention clients in the new warehouse.
Does the building have tenants yet?
The warehouse already has three tenants and we have
two tenants for the newly built part so far. The new
clients will lease approximately 40,000 sqm. The rest
of the hall, about 35,000 sqm of space, is still available.
This autumn we will open
a new co-working space Clubco
in our IQ Ostrava building.
This year you bought a building with an adjacent
land in Hrušov, which is supposed to become
the largest warehouse in the Czech CTP portfolio.
What stage is this project currently at?
The land was the site of a former chemical plant,
and now you can find CTPark Ostrava Hrušov there.
It will indeed be our largest warehouse in the Czech

Are you currently working on any other
projects in Ostrava?
We will have a new community centre Clubhaus in
CTPark Ostrava and we are also building CTZone near
the park, which focuses on smaller units. It is a project
with residential housing as well, where sustainability
plays a big role. We are also working on offices, this
autumn we will open a new co-working space Clubco
in our IQ Ostrava building. This will be our third flexible
office centre in the Czech Republic.
