This year, the approval of three AFIHOME rental projects is expected - Karlín in Prague 8, Třebešín in Prague 3, where we plan to open a model apartment, and Kolbenova in Prague 9, where the first of two buildings will be completed. The houses will come to life soon after with the arrival of new residents and we will take care of their satisfaction and the overall management of the premises, "comments Doron Klein, AFI Europe Director for the Czech Republic.
