Mississippi House and Missouri Park are the two new ongoing developments located in the attractive and most influential business district location of Karlín, in the Rohanský Island area in Prague, Czech Republic. The two office buildings will be built as part of the vast River City Prague complex that will include a total of five buildings featuring offices, shops, housing and restaurants. Our previously completed Amazon Court Offices is also part of this historic expansion of the area.

Placed in a pivotal green location on the Vltava River with a view of the Prague Castle, the buildings will directly affect Prague’s future development towards the dynamic and well-connected area of Karlín. The project will knit into the already existing infrastructure and will create at the same time, a new public transport flow with bike pathways and flexible outdoor spaces that encourage community engagement.

The public park linking the buildings to the Vltava River offers a retreat for visitors and employees who can disconnect from their busy daily lives and enjoy the views towards the water.

Mississippi House and Missouri Park are designed to be built independently from each other. They have their own structure while being connected with a common ground floor podium and a basement.

The placement of green terraces and the focus on natural light ensure highly efficient buildings in terms of energy-saving and temperature control. An intelligent lighting system, smart CO2 monitoring process, advanced waste recycling strategy, rainwater collection, photovoltaic as well as the use of heat pumps make City River Prague a greatly sustainable project which targets a LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum certification.

The large lobbies, opened towards the river, are welcoming and transparent. The natural daylight within the office space enters the space via large pre-fabricated frames, opening up to spectacular views of the river and giving the buildings specificity within the existing urban context of Prague. Each floor has been tailored specifically to serve various models of operation, accommodating future changes in the tenant’s strategic needs.

After the project’s completion, both buildings will transform the entire complex into a new destination and a sustainable urban development, a benchmark for creative work environment, and the new waterfront of River City - the gateway to a new era for Prague.

Construction has begun and RCP is expected to complete in September 2021.
