One of the parties that has successfully objected to the demolition of an existing building on the site of the project is one of its neighbours, who is being represented by long-term opponent of the development, lawyer and cultural conservationist Petr Kužvart. A Prague magistrate has now accepted the objections and referred the project back to Prague 1 council. This is the latest in a series of setbacks for the project, which had seemed to receive final approval when culture minister Alena Hanáková gave it the go-ahead last summer before stepping down from her position. In a company statement confirming that the lawsuit process had officially begun, James Woolf, the chairman of Flow East, said: “We believe Mr Milan Brynda is merely a white horse for a discredited lawyer acting in an immoral and malicious manner. We are certainly not in the business of suing frivolously, quite the contrary. Sadly, we believe that Mr Milan Brydna has been persuaded to take this action to cause our company damage and we will prove this in court. As the public records show Mr Kužvart being rejected as a participant it appears likely that he used one of his old contacts from his past under the communist regime as a white horse.” If the building is ever constructed, will offer around 16,000 sqm of offices and 8,000 sqm of retail. It has been designed by Jan Pokorný of the Chapman Taylor architectural studio.
