WROCLAW | Projects & Construction

Welcome everybody!

This thread will contain regular updates of the many projects being realised in the Polish city of Wroclaw.

I would like to introduce you first to the city!

The city is in South-West Poland





Informally it is known as the 'Venice of Poland', due to the many bridges in the city.

Its population is around 632.000, making it the 5th biggest city of Poland.

About the economy from wikipedia:

Quote:
Wrocław's industry manufactures buses, trams, railroad cars, home appliances, chemicals and electronics. The city houses factories and development centers of many foreign and domestic corporations, such as WAGO ELWAG, Siemens, Nokia Siemens Networks, Volvo, HP, IBM, Google, Opera Software, QAD, Bombardier Transportation, DeLaval, Whirlpool Corporation, Bosch, WABCO, FagorMastercook, Tieto, PPG Deco Poland and others. The offices of multiple major Polish companies, including Getin Holding, Akwawit-Polmos Wrocław, Telefonia Dialog, Gazoprojekt, MCI Management, Protram, Selena, Koelner, AB SA, Impel, Kogeneracja SA, EKO Holding are located there as well.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the city has had a developing high-tech sector.

Many high-tech companies are located in the Wrocław Technology Park, such as Baluff, CIT Engineering, Caisson Elektronik, ContiTech, Ericsson, Innovative Software Technologies, IT-MED, Mitsubishi Electric, Maas, IT Sector, Technology Transfer Agency Techtra, Vratis, PGS Software and IBM. In Biskupice Podgórne (Community Kobierzyce) there are factories of LG (LG Display, LG Electronics, LG Chem, LG Innotek), Dong Seo Display, Dong Yang Electronics, Toshiba and many other companies, mainly from the electronics and home appliances sectors.

The following banks have their headquarters in Wrocław: Crédit Agricole Bank of Poland, Bank Zachodni WBK, Euro Bank, Santander Consumer Bank; as well as financial and accounting centers: Volvo, Hewlett-Packard, KPIT Cummins, UPS, GE Money Bank, Credit Suisse. The city is home to the largest number of leasing companies and debt collection in the country, including the largest European Leasing Fund, there is also a headquarters of AmRest, a franchisee network of KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King and Starbucks. Wrocław is a major center for the pharmaceutical industry: U.S. Pharmacia, Hasco-Lek, Galena, 3M, Labor, S-Lab, Herbapol, Cezal.

In February 2013, Qatar Airways launched its Wrocław European Customer Service.

Closely tied to Wrocław are Bielany Retail Park and Bielany Trade Center, located in Bielany Wrocławskie where supermarkets Auchan, Decathlon, Leroy Merlin, Makro, Tesco, IKEA, OBI, Castorama, Black Red White, factories E. Wedel, Cargill and warehouses Prologis, Panattoni, Amazon.com.
Due to the proximity of the borders with Germany and the Czech Republic, Wrocław and the region of Lower Silesia is a large import and export partner with these countries.
The city has been booming over the last year, becoming a major hub for outsourcing.

First a few historical sights to give you an impression of Wroclaw.

The Old Market



City Hall



The city is well known for its dwarfs. Hundreds of these statues are hidden all over Wroclaw



Centennial Hall



University





Cathedral

Built in recent years

Wroclaw is booming. I think that can be easily stated. Consequently many new buildings have appeared over the last years all over the city. A selection:

Wroclaw is one of the most happening cities in Poland, a flower of all that is good about Europe and it looks better every year. There is lots of construction going on, but for me what I like about it is how livable and walkable this city is, you don't feel in danger of being run over by cars like in many North American cities.

BTW, the metropolitan population is about 1,165,000...so it's pretty good size city.
