The area of Holešovice is divided by line barriers into several developed urban-planning unlinked surfaces. The largest of them actually consists of entire city neighbourhoods – Holešovice and Bubny, as well as Letná. The barriers are transport corridors – railways, the north-south arterial road and brownfield land on the site of the former railway station Bubny between them. The barriers of the demarcated territory, of an area of 104 ha, in the immediate vicinity of the city centre form an enormous deposit of potential construction surface, which are already designated for development. The strategy behind this urban development involves two city-wide important centres, a government quarter to the north on the site of the Holešovice railway station and a town hall and cultural square at the bridge-head of Hlávkův most bridge. These two public investments, these two clear urban-planning figures will be supplemented and linked with a spine, this being the central park along the eastern side of the railway. This creates the identity of the Holešovice neighbourhood (its front – with a park riverbank) and Bubny, while at the same time serving as its linking element. This is once again a public investment carried out by the city, which consequently has a tool in hand for successful revitalization and urban planning of the entire territory, forming the framework and picture of this urbanization. This will be supplemented by private investors on the remaining private plots of land.
