Description For some time, the economic crisis of the last decade had paralyzed territorial and specific development projects in urban environments of the Czech Republic, as well as other countries. After many major development projects were suspended or canceled, territorial development activities started to revert to their pre-2008 state characterized by a large-scale development boom. In the long run, the construction of above-standard nonresidential (offices, administration buildings) and residential (suburbs and villas) complexes predominates. Recently, there has been an increasing number of resonating projects that focus on research, development and innovation, as well as culture and education. These are built either on greenfields, or, more frequently, in previously utilized locations (brownfields). Investors are generally recruited out of private, mostly multi-national companies. However, the public sector (cities, regions) is also showing activity in this regard. The aim of the paper is to present the current state of the functional and spatial aspects (morphology) of the development environment in the city of Brno from the point of view of developers focusing on housing construction.
