News in brief

Poland selling Meble Emilia, includes prime Warsaw spot



A controlling stake in state-owned furniture company Meble Emilia is being put up for sale by the Treasury Ministry
for zł.172.28 million. The sale will include a network of 12 furniture stores, the best-recognized of which
is located on ul. Emilii Plater, in Warsaw’s downtown.

Built in the 1970s and nestled in between the InterContinental Hotel (164 m) and the
Warsaw Financial Center (165 m), the store is in a prime location.
Some experts say the new owner could replace the store with a more profitable high-rise office building.

However, construction of an office tower on the site of the building would be difficult to undertake
because of the existence of an eight-storey apartment block that sits directly behind it.
Construction of a large office tower would restrict sunlight for the apartment’s residents to a
level below that which is required by law.

The developer of the InterContinental also had to deal with a similar requirement, eventually
choosing to include a section that allows light to pass through.

For an office to be built on the site of Meble Emilia’s furniture store, an investor would be required to buy some
existing residences facing ul. Emilii Plater and replace them with office or hotel space. Residents, however,
do not want to move out and would likely demand exorbitant payments to do so, reported Gazeta Wyborcza.

The Treasury hopes to sell its 85 percent stake in Meble Emilia while allowing eligible employees to acquire the
remaining 15 percent of the company free of charge.
The minimum price-per-share set for the available shares (221,000) is zł.779.54.

In addition to its network of stores, Meble Emilia also rents out office, retail, advertising and
warehouse space in the capital and its surrounding area.

Last year, according to the Treasury, Meble Emilia recorded a loss of zł.1.6 million on sales of zł.42 million.

GTC to invest €160 million in new Warsaw shopping center

Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed developer Globe Trade Centre (GTC)
has revealed more details pertaining to a planned shopping center which it wants to build in Warsaw’s Białołęka district.
The mall will be located on a 4.9 hectare plot on the capital’s ul. Światowida.
It will cost approximately €160 million to develop.

The facility will comprise some 60,000 sqm of leasable space.
The developer hopes that due to its convenient location, the project’s catchment area will comprise almost
540,000 people and will, apart from Białołęka, include the neighboring Żoliborz, Bielany, Praga Północ and Targówek districts.

“The planned investment is a response to the needs of the rapidly developing Białołęka and neighboring districts
where [the supply of] modern retail and service areas is still limited,” Piotr Kroenke, general manager of GTC, said in a statement.

He added that due to ongoing transport infrastructure improvements, including the construction of Warsaw’s
Northern Bridge, the center would successfully serve people residing on both sides of the Vistula river.

“We are glad that in the central part of our district a modern facility with a wide retail and entertainment offer will be built.
We believe that this initiative will enjoy the support of the district’s authorities and its inhabitants,”
Białołęka district executive Jacek Kaznowski said in a statement.

Construction on GTC’s Białołęka mall is expected to start in the spring of 2013 at the latest.
At the moment, the shopping center project is in the planning stage, with the Tzur Architects and APA Wojciechowski studios
preparing the design. The same architectural firms are now also designing a shopping mall that
GTC plans to build in Warsaw’s Wilanów district.

Hochtief to transform two Warsaw buildings



Developer Hochtief Development Poland reportedly plans to convert
two historic tenement buildings in Warsaw’s city center into offices.

The buildings are both owned by Hochtief. One is located
near Plac Stanisława Małachowskiego, the other on ul. Mazowiecka.

TVN Warszawa reported that the developer is financing the project on Plac Stanisława Małachowskiego,
which it wants to turn into an office building. The property located on ul. Mazowiecka, meanwhile, is
earmarked for commercial as well as office space.

When contacted by Lokale Immobilia, Hochtief Development Poland
representatives declined to comment on the report.

According to TVN Warszawa, the company has already received permission to start renovation work on the building on
Plac Stanisława Małachowskiego. Under the supervision of a conservator,
the developer aims to modernize, but not completely change, the appearance of the structure, the report said.
The building will offer a total of 14,000 sqm of space for rent.

The second investment, on ul. Mazowiecka, is a smaller project.
Overall it will offer 2,500 sqm of leasable space, the channel reported, without
saying if the developer has received permission to renovate the building.

The first storey of the building has high ceilings, “which would be ideal for a club or a restaurant,
which would fit right in with ul. Mazowiecka,” Katarzyna Baranowska, of Hochtief Development Poland,
was quoted by TVN Warszawa as saying.

I think Warsaw has better projects on the horizon. Toronto has a big condominium boom right now but that's mostly a love affair with glass. Look at Wilanow district in Warsaw. Show me a neighborhood in Toronto that is using material of that quality.

New office building is set to be build next to Warsaw Stock Exchange and it'll be pressed between the new stock exchange building and the old stock exchange building (so called Dom Partii). The building will be "sticked" into blind walls of the neighboring tenements. Because of a very small plot where the building will be build, it will only have 4,400 sq. m. of office space with shops on the first two levels.

Desgin - Andrzej Chołdzyński
Planned end of construction - 2015














The small area where the building is planned.

Today, UBS (the owner of Ilmet Tower) announced the results of internal architectural competition for this tower - so yes, it's official.
Tabloids in Warsaw are now talking that the tower will have something between 200 m.
Few weeks ago we had some photo leaks of an other project (desgined by Goettsch Partners) that took
also part in this competiton - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=498
