BBI Development NFI hopes to build at Hale Banacha site in Warsaw



Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed developer BBI Development NFI and the Hale Banacha cooperative have signed an agreement concerning the development of a new mixed-use investment in Warsaw that will comprise office, retail and residential space.

Hale Banacha owns two market halls, each of them sized almost 3,000 sqm, near the intersection of ul. Grójecka and ul. Banacha in the capital’s Ochota district. BBI Development NFI plans to demolish these and build a single structure in their place.

According to the agreement, which has been signed for a period of four years, market traders operating in Hale Banacha are supposed to move to temporary premises during the period of construction. Once the new investment is completed, the cooperative will be given retail space in the building.

The finalization of the deal between BBI Development NFI and Hale Banacha is contingent on a number of conditions, including the latter entity obtaining either perpetual usufruct rights or ownership rights to the land on which the markets sit. Currently, Hale Banacha does not own the site.

Port Praski steps up preparation work on its eponymous Warsaw scheme



A master plan for the huge mixed-use investment is expected to be ready in June

Investor Port Praski is stepping up preparation work on its eponymous real estate investment in Warsaw that will involve the complete transformation of a neglected 38-hectare area in the city’s Praga Północ district.

The company, which has owned the Port Praski river port area since the 1990s, hopes its huge mixed-use project will finally enter the development stage in the upcoming weeks once all the necessary administrative permits have been secured.

Zoning problems

To date, the investment has been hindered by a lack of zoning, but a new zoning plan covering the premises in question is now expected to be put into place in June. Also in June, a master plan for the whole Port Praski investment will be ready, said Port Praski CEO Adam Pykel.

Two renowned Warsaw-based architectural studios, JEMS Architekci and APA Wojciechowski, have been tasked with coming up with the master plan. “Once the plan is finished, we will announce nine architectural competitions for the particular parts of the project,” Mr Pykel said.

Meanwhile, the investor has started demolishing those parts of the existing structures in Port Praski that are not meant to be preserved. A number of buildings with historical value will be renovated and integrated into the rest of the scheme.

The company is also taking steps to provide new infrastructure for the neighborhood. Later this year, construction should launch on a sluice that will make the area safe from the effects of water-level fluctuations in the nearby Vistula River, and thus make living and working in the planned buildings safe.

Central location

The Port Praski river port facility was built in the 1920s and 1930s and has for the last three decades been disused. The investor hopes the neighborhood will be transformed into a new vibrant area of Warsaw featuring, among other things, office and residential space.

Although dilapidated today, the area is located close to the capital’s downtown and its potential has recently been boosted by the delivery and commencement of major infrastructure projects including the National Stadium, a railway station and a station of the capital’s second subway line.

According to Mr Pykel, up to 500,000 sqm of space will be developed within the investment. Apart from low-rise residential buildings lining the port’s waterfront, the project will also include several commercial towers and an extensive park.

In the first phase of the project, a building housing Port Praski’s future offices and approximately 30 apartments will be built. The investor is now only awaiting a final administrative permit and wants to go ahead with the scheme in the next few weeks.

PBM Południe has already been selected as the general contractor of the building. Apartment sales are expected to launch by the end of the year, once the construction of the homes has reached an advanced stage.

Huge interest

The commercialization of the later phases of Port Praski will launch after the investor has secured building permits for the particular structures, but according to Mr Pykel interest in the planned development is already huge with the company receiving many requests from potential tenants.

He is also confident about interest in the apartments that will be built in Port Praski, claiming that the presence of water should be a factor which will attract buyers. Up to 5,000 homes are expected to be developed within the investment.

If all the administrative hurdles are finally cleared, Mr Pykel said, the whole area will soon become one huge construction site. “Our dream is to deliver the whole investment within the next eight years,” he said.

He did not want to speculate about the total value of the Port Praski project, saying that the cost is virtually impossible to calculate at this stage, before the zoning plan is in place and the total amount of space that Port Praski will be able to build on its land is known.

Ghelamco secures land for new office project in Warsaw

Telecom operator Netia has signed a preliminary sales agreement with a subsidiary of developer Ghelamco concerning land in Warsaw’s Ursynów district. The plots in question are sized 23,600 sqm in total and are located on the capital’s ul. Poleczki.

Currently, two buildings are situated on the land, one of which will remain the property of Netia. According to the agreement, the telecom operator will move its offices to one of the new office buildings which Ghelamco plans to build on the acquired plots.

“The sale of the property on ul. Poleczki in Warsaw results from the company’s policy concerning the optimization of assets. We consistently sell real estate which we do not use,” Mirosław Godlewski, president of Netia’s management board, said in a statement.

The value of the Netia-Ghelamco deal is estimated at from zł.25.9 million to zł.32 million, with the final price depending on how intensive the planned development of the land will be. The transaction is expected to be finalized by the end of this year.

TVP to sell Pl. Powstańców offices



Polish public broadcaster TVP intends to sell editorial offices it owns on Warsaw’s Pl. Powstańców. The television company plans to move staff working at the location to the company’s main headquarters at ul. Woronicza 17. TVP spokesperson Joanna Stempień-Rogalińska said in a statement that the board had discussed the move at a meeting last week. The company has decided to move out of the offices, which are located at ul. Jasna 14/16 and ul. Moniuszki 2/2A, because they do not meet the necessary requirements.

Odniosłem się do kwestii czysto wizualnych a nie stereotypów na temat tego co myśli Ślązak o Warszawiaku i na odwrót.

The eastern train station looks great now. I remember boarding there for Wroclaw in the summer of 2011 and it was a mess.
Sidenote: if traveling far board from this station if you want to get a good seat on the train because it goes to the central station afterwards.

I love the project above.

Does anyone know the status of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw? What's going on with this project?
