Located close to the Nové Butovice metro station, the Metronom Business Center is comprised of three connected buildings, which include terraces on the upper floors. The building has achieved BREEAM Excellent Certification and has three underground floors to park 533 cars, plus a bicycle parking and a recharging station for electric cars.
