18. 06. 2021 20 YEARS ON HOUSING MARKETshow
Horizon Holding has been operating in the Czech residential market since 2001, so this year it celebrates a milestone - a wonderful 20 years. The company has become one of Prague's leading residential developers in recent years, and the number of apartments sold each year ranks the company amongst the top five.
During this period, Horizon has completed and handed over to new owners 1,000 new apartments. Currently the company is carrying out developments in Čimice, Hodkovičky, Modřany and Karlín in Prague, having over a thousand apartments under construction. The company is going to continue in this successful vein also into the future. Later this year, it will start the 3rd phase of the Zahálka project in Hodkovičky, launch the construction and sale of the Blízká complex in Karlín, and enrich its offer with new family houses that will be built in the Aura project in Statenice.

Horizon acquired 24 hectares in Statenice. The residential project will be developed in two main stages and will offer more than 500 units in the form of single-family houses as well as apartments. The start of construction, as well as the sale of semi-detached houses and villas from the first phase of the project, is planned for this autumn.
Statenice, a village located in the Central Bohemian region only 11 kilometres from the centre of the capital, lies in the valley of the Únětice brook
10. 03. 2021 AFTER SALES OF 2.7 BILLION LAST YEAR, THIS YEAR ALREADY INDICATING RECORD RESULTSshow
Despite the uncertainty and difficult conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Horizon Holding has experienced a record year. In 2020, the company's total revenues from the sale of 337 units in five different projects climbed to CZK 2.7 billion. Horizon plans to build about a thousand units this year and will put another 550 new apartments up for sale.
20. 01. 2021 TV Architect interviewed Yishay Furman, CEO of Horizonshow
In his homeland of Israel, Yishay Furman used to work in the hotel industry. However, twenty years ago an interesting offer came from the distant town of Prague to assist with a development project. What was originally a three-month mission quickly turned into years. Over the past twelve years he has been managing a development company, Horizon Holding, and is at the top of the Prague residential development. Amongst his achievements are, for example, the Kay River Lofts, Modřanka and Rezidence Blízká projects.

02. 09. 2019 Zahálka grew four floors this summershow
The building framework is starting to take on its final form. By the end of August both buildings were built up to the 8th floor, with work on the 9th underway. We update our photo gallery regularly with how construction is progressing. See for yourselves how the terraces on both buildings open up to breathtaking views in all directions on much of Prague’s Vltava river valley. To the north you can see far beyond the towers of the Emmaus Monastery and Vyšehrad, while south-facing terraces enjoy views of the Cukrák television tower in Vrané nad Vltavou. Across the river to the west the Chuchle Grove stretches out wide, while to the east you can see Hodkovičky and all the way to Lhotka. Their position on high ground and in relation to each other gives each apartment on each floor of each building a unique view. Zahálka – light, air and space.
15. 07. 2019 Starting sales on Čámovka Phase 2show

At present everything is on schedule, the three underground levels are complete and Zahálka is up to the 4th floor.
21. 06. 2019 Rezidence Modřanka is the second BREEAM-certified residential project in the Czech Republicshow
BREEAM is a system for rating building sustainability. It considers projects as a whole, looking not only at energy efficiency and water and waste management, but also the construction materials and process used.
The sustainable solutions at Modřanka include a forced ventilation system with recuperation. Unlike ventilation with open windows, recuperation units can exchange air without letting in noise from the surrounding area. Similarly, the system saves energy on compensating for heat loss, circulating pre-heated (or cooled) air into the room. The units are fitted with filters that clean the air brought into the apartments of any impurities and dust, ensuring a healthier inside environment.
Modřanka received its positive assessment partly also due to its water saving methods and park planted with local species of plants, an insect hotel and drinking spot for birds.
27. 05. 2019 Modřanka - New addition to the Park Museumshow
On Saturday, May 18, 2019, we held the opening ceremony for the new addition to the Park Museum, with the mayor of Prague 12 and general director of the Horizon group in attendance. Matěj Görner, co-designer of the park, led the adults on a guided tour while the children played on the playgrounds.
The Park Museum now features nine new stations, called “atmospheres”. You can walk through time and learn about figures like Elizabeth of Bohemia (Eliška Přemyslovna) and Jan Hus, and even visit the future. Will Modřany ever have a metro stop? One of the new displays is shaped like the iconic metro train wagon and intended for legal graffiti. Mayor Jan Adamec wrote the first message.
You can visit this 0.65 hectare park to learn more about the history of Modřany, relax with friends or spend the afternoon with the kids at the playground. Come check it out!
21. 03. 2019 Modřanka – Phase A final occupancy approvalshow
We are delighted to announce that Phase A, which will give a new home to 73 families, has received its final occupancy approval. Construction began in July 2017 and finished in February 2019. All apartments were sold long before the building was completed.
We will contact the future owners in the next few weeks to come for technical inspections of the apartments and then move into their new homes over the summer.
07. 02. 2019 Modřanka - phase D - final occupancy approvalshow
Our clients will receive timely updates on the building progress and the steps to be taken for the upcoming handover of units.

08. 01. 2019 VELKÁ BRÁNA - 100 apartments handed over by the end of the yearshow
The end of the year is always a time for looking back and tying up loose ends, and 2018 was no exception. We are happy with what we accomplished during the year – the first two phases of the Velká Brána project got final occupancy approval, we found buyers for all the apartments we had for sale, and some of them have already transferred to their new owners.
We finished seven buildings with a total of 122 apartments, nearly 100 of which we managed to hand over to their new owners before the year was over. We wish them all a wonderful new start and hope that even the stress of moving will not be too overwhelming and they might be able to look back on all those boxes one day with a smile.
May all our new owners enjoy years full of laughter, joy and love in their new homes!
