                      New project of 120 residential units

                           in Prague, Czech Republic



Engel East Europe N.V. ('Engel East Europe' or 'the Company'), the AIM-listed
Central and Eastern European ('CEE') residential property developer (EEE:L), is
pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement for the purchase of
additional land in Prague, in the Czech Republic, for the development of
approximately 120 residential units. The management estimates that the projected
sales of the project will total approximately €21 million. The agreement is
subject to due diligence.



The project will be purchased by Enman B.V, a 50% subsidiary of the Company held
in equal partnership with the Heitman Fund as part of JVII between the Company
and Heitman.



The Company intends to develop a residential project on the acquired land, with
a total area of approximately 6,000sqm. The project is in a superior location
within the prestigious Prague 6 district.



The total purchase price of the land, for which a planning permit has already
been obtained, is approximately €5 million, which will be paid by the Company,
on completion of the due diligence.



Engel East Europe is in continuing negotiations for the purchase of additional
parcels of land throughout the CEE Region, both in countries we are already
active in as well as in new countries, for the construction of thousands more
residential units.



Jacob Engel, founder and Executive Chairman, said:



'We are delighted to announce this latest development project in Prague which is
located in a high quality neighborhood and is a result of our long involvement
in Prague's residential property market.  This complements our strategy of
further expanding our activities in Prague and taking full advantage of the
considerable growth opportunities for residential property development in the
CEE region'.'
