About the project

Waltrovka

The Waltrovka project aims to revitalize a sizable part of Jinonice in Prague where the former Walter Motors factory used to be. The site has seen offices, shops, and a 2-hectare park all spring up there over the recent years. The project’s main goal was to create a new, modern city district and offer its visitors everything they need, all right next to metro line B.

A Glorious Past

Josef Walter started out with a machine fitter’s apprenticeship certificate and worked his way up from bicycle repairs to designing and constructing motorcycles under his own brand. That’s how Walter motorcycles started appearing on European roads. That was in 1903. Six years later, the world saw the birth of the Walter 4-seat motor tricycle. That was the first step towards an automobile with the winged-W logo on the front. The growing company was in need of property to build a factory on, which they then found and obtained in Jinonice in 1913. Another ten years later, the factory started building what would in the coming decades become its most important series of products: aircraft engines. After World War II, the factory grew into one of the largest in Central Europe and was renamed Motorlet. This fascinating story concluded in 2008, until it was reborn as today’s Waltrovka.

A Shining Future Full of Growth

The project has made revitalizing a vast chunk of land in Praha’s Jinonice district where the factory used to stand its goal. In its place, new office and residential blocks as well as shops are being built, combining today’s world of functionality, efficiency, and services with greenery, comfort, and relaxation. The site’s original character has been kept along with several of the historical buildings and the road.
