Meeting of Mayor of the city of Ostrava and investors in Nová Karolina Park project

The Nová Karolina Park building was the site of a meeting and discussion between the Ostrava Mayor Tomáš Macura and Radim Passer, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PASSERINVEST GROUP, a.s., and representatives of ABB s.r.o. and AXA Assistance CZ, s.r.o. The meeting reinforced and expanded the mutual cooperation between the city’s leaders and companies operating in Ostrava.

Ostrava’s Mayor Tomáš Macura met with Radim Passer, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PASSERINVEST GROUP, Hannu Kasi, the President and Country Manager of ABB, Vladimír Kysela, the Director of the CEE Region for AXA Assistance, and Filip Chlebiš, the Regional Representative of Czechinvest.

The morning’s programme was a visit and tour of the spaces of ABB and AXA in the Nová Karolina Park building, including an introduction and presentation of both companies. There was also a discussion focussing primarily on the theme of mutual cooperation in the area of human resources and support for technical education and instruction in foreign languages. 

“I’m glad that this productive meeting with Mayor Macura and the representatives of the companies took place in our Nová Karolina Park project. Together we primarily discussed important issues concerning the lack of qualified human resources in the Ostrava region, which both of the companies are struggling with, and we discussed the possible mutual cooperation when looking for methods for supporting professional training. We also discussed the possibilities concerning potential investors for the Ostrava Region or the theme of transportation,” stated Radim Passer, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PASSERINVEST GROUP, with regard to the meeting.


The Nová Karolina Park office building is sensitively located in a newly-urbanised area of Ostrava near Masarykovo náměstí and it forms a “gateway” from the historic core of the city. The developer of the project is a joint venture between PASSERINVEST GROUP and GEMO OLOMOUC. The project’s architectural design comes from the drawing boards of Vít Máslo and David R. Chisholm of CMC architects. The entire project is spread out over 32 hectares of space on six storeys and it offers almost 24,600 m2 of prime office space. This is supplemented on the ground floor with 3700 m2 of space suitable for shops, services and restaurants. There are 279 underground parking spaces meant for the users of the building. Nová Karolina Park is certified as a green building according to BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method). The British BREEAM certificate is a prestigious methodology for the certification of green buildings in Europe.

Passerinvest Group (hereinafter Passerinvest) is a purely Czech builder and investor. The company was founded by Radim Passer back in 1991 and has since then acquired a lot of experience in the construction of office and commercial buildings, residential buildings and civic amenities.
Since 1998, Passerinvest, as a responsible urban developer, has primarily been connected with Brumlovka (BB Centrum) in Prague 4, which is one of the most successful and extensive urban projects not only in the Czech Republic, but throughout all of Europe. Another important project in the company’s portfolio is Nové Roztyly, a brownfield of the former slaughterhouses of the Interlov complex where, in the future, a place with pleasant housing with a large park should arise, complemented by services for the general public and an office function. The principles of urban construction and the long-term sustainable development of Prague and the Czech Republic are part of Passerinvest Group’s vision. Thanks to its responsible approach, Passerinvest has built a very good reputation both on a domestic and on an international level. This is not only to the credit of the quality of the realised projects and the high level of the provided services, but also to the sense of fair play, a customer approach and also its responsibility to the society and the environment.
