Currently, Ostrava's 85-meter-tall New Town Hall which was built in the 1930s holds the position of the tallest building. While the AZ Tower in Brno is labeled as the Czech Republic's tallest building as of now which measures 111 meters. When complete the envisioned skyscraper will be twice more than the height of AZ Tower.

Fascinating and Iconic X-Shaped Building

The unique shape of the building, which is located near a shopping center and former steelworks, consists of two stacked triangular forms.
