Representatives of Prague 3 are holding a special meeting to discuss the fate of the large rail cargo station in the borough of Žižkov. The meeting is taking place at the behest of the opposition, which is opposed to the destruction of the station and is asking the district town hall to change its stance. The district government and Czech Railways are interested in refurbishing the area, building flats for thousands of people as well as office space and commercial centres. The plan to tear down the functionalist-style station has drawn the ire of several experts and civic associations who consider it a valuable work of architecture. The Ministry of Culture is to decide on whether the building will be protected.
