Modřany is one of Prague’s hottest areas for new housing developments. The district’s growing connectivity with the city center is combined with a burgeoning reputation both as a social hotspot in its own right, and as a part of the Czech capital that affords a more family-oriented pace of life.

Czech real estate developer PSN, on the market since 1991 and responsible for prestigious properties including Prague’s famous Dancing House, is now bringing a colorful residential development to Modřany. Named Ahoj, Vanguard, the development will deliver modern living spaces suitable for individuals of all ages and families of different sizes, while also providing excellent investment opportunities benefiting from Modřany’s reputation as a popular up-and-coming location.

With a design putting daylight, color and greenery center-stage, Ahoj, Vanguard forms part of a cluster of developments by PSN in Modřany providing exciting amenities for residents along with a real sense of community and togetherness.

The right place for families

Ahoj, Vanguard is a development catering to all types of prospective homeowners, from singles all the way to large families.

Apartments of various sizes are on offer, from single studios (1+kk) to four-bedroom apartments (4+kk). With 94 apartments spread across seven floors, each and every flat includes sliding French windows, while PSN has created attractive outdoor spaces in the form of balconies, terraces and front gardens. These elements combine to fill homes at Ahoj, Vanguard with natural daylight and a sense of airy spaciousness.

Amenities for residents will also make the development a perfect place for families to thrive and grow. Copious green areas form a major part of the project, both in communal spaces for relaxation and socializing, and in private front gardens on the first floor which, thanks to an architectural design that places the first floor on the third level above ground, benefit from more daylight and less noise.

Ahoj, Vanguard will also feature a parking facility with five levels along with parking spaces in front of the building. Ample space for parking will be complemented by charging points for electric cars, simplifying day-to-day life for residents.

According to Jan Pála, Project Manager for Ahoj, Vanguard, the development “will have an outdoor children’s playground, a lot of greenery, and a shared rooftop terrace” while also benefiting from nearby bike paths.

“Ahoj, Vanguard will also include a children’s club,” he adds. “Situated inside the building, the playground will truly deliver quality family living. While providing lots of fun for kids, it will also serve as a place where parents and their children can make new friends.”

In keeping with this emphasis on creating family-friendly spaces, the development’s design is marked out by playful colors. Meanwhile, a noise-absorbing green outdoor wall for a submerged parking facility makes a serene, peaceful environment one of Ahoj, Vanguard’s chief attractions.

The benefits of community

Ahoj, Vanguard isn’t PSN’s only development in the trendy Modřany district. The company is also bringing luxury lofts to the market with its Vanguard Loft building, a conversion of an impressive former industrial property into stunning luxury lofts delivering a “brutalist romance” aesthetic style.

Residents at the Ahoj, Vanguard development will benefit from the amenities on offer at the Vanguard Loft building, including luxury features for an improved quality of life.

“There will be a connection with the Vanguard Loft building, which is right next to the Ahoj building,” explains Pála. “Specifically, this will include the sharing of services for the communities living at Ahoj, who will be able to use wellness facilities, the fitness center, swimming pool and a shared terrace. This will provide opportunities for spending evenings together and meeting more new neighbors.”

Located in a former fallout shelter, shared amenities will also include a spa with Finnish sauna and steam bath, whirlpools next to the swimming pool, showers, a relaxation room, massage couches and more.

Dynamic Modřany

Formerly a separate settlement, Modřany is fast becoming one of Prague’s most appealing residential areas as the city expands. Small 1930s villas and industrial buildings have been converted by developers into attractive properties, while new developments such as Ahoj, Vanguard lend a distinctly modern vibe to the district.

Unsurprisingly, given its former status as a separate town, Modřany is today one of Prague’s greenest neighborhoods. Surrounded by wooded parks, the Belárie forest, the historic “Archbishop’s Vineyard” and plenty of clean air, Ahoj, Vanguard residents will benefit from a non-urban style of living.

They will also enjoy plentiful outdoor opportunities at Modřany, including a golf course, tennis and badminton courts, and the Modřany Bikeway, a popular bike path leading to the Modřany Lagoons. The district is also rich in culture, with multiple theaters and cinemas as well as great restaurants and pubs.

According to Pála, Modřany “has enormous potential as a pleasant, dynamically developing part of the Czech capital. Residents enjoy the lazily flowing river Vltava, a golf course with a view of Vyšehrad fortress, a popular bike path, and everything in between. It’s a quiet place with good transport access to the city center, while lots of sports opportunities are on offer close to the Vltava.”

Homes at Ahoj, Vanguard are still available, with prices starting at CZK 10,500,000. With the development selling out fast, those interested should contact PSN to arrange an appointment and find out more about quality living in Modřany.
