Tamir Winterstein, CEO of Lighthouse Group, added: “We are happy to welcome such prominent tenants to Harfa. Our major office development providing all facilities within the integrated shopping centre clearly ticks the requirement boxes of international tenants like LG and national prides like CIHA, which consolidates Harfa’s position in the Prague office market.“
