POZNAN | Projects & Construction

Welcome on this thread!

You will find frequently updated information of all the architectural developments in Poznan, the 5th largest city of Poland.

A small introduction to Poznan:



Poznan is the capital of the Greater Poland Province. 551.627 people live within the city borders, while the urban area is about 1 million and the metro are about 1.4 million.



Poznan is an important city for business and trade, positioned more or less on the half of the length between Warsaw and Berlin, that are connected with the A2 motorway, which runs through Poznan too.

For the economy of Poznan, I would like to let you read a quote from the wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pozna%C5%84).

Quote:
Poznań has been an important trade centre since the Middle Ages. Starting in the 19th century, local heavy industry began to grow. Several major factories were built, including the Hipolit Cegielski steel mill and railway factory (see H. Cegielski - Poznań S.A.).

Nowadays Poznań is one of the major trade centers in Poland. Poznań is regarded as the second most prosperous city in Poland after Warsaw. The city of Poznań produced PLN 31.8 billion of Poland's gross domestic product in 2006. It boasts a GDP per capita of 200,4% (2008) of Poland's average. Furthermore, Poznań had very low unemployment rate of 2.3% as of May 2009. For comparison, Poland's national unemployment rate was over 10%.

Many Western European companies have established their Polish headquarters in Poznań or in the nearby towns of Tarnowo Podgórne and Swarzędz. Most foreign investors are German and Dutch companies (see List of corporations in Poznań), with a few others. Investors are mostly from the food processing, furniture, automotive and transport and logistics industries. Foreign companies are primarily attracted by low labour costs and by the relatively good road and railway network, good vocational skills of workers and relatively liberal employment laws.

The recently built Stary Browar shopping center contains many high-end shops and is considered one of the best in Europe. It has won an award for the best shopping center in the world in the medium-sized commercial buildings category. Other notable shopping centers in the city include Galeria Malta, one of the largest in Central Europe, and the shops at the Hotel Bazar, a historical hotel and commercial center in the Old Town.
Updated numbers:

In 2010, Poznan produced 40.2 billion Zloty of GDP, the third biggest in Poland, after Warsaw and Cracow. This was 2.8% of Poland's GDP in 2010. At the end of April 2013, Poznan still had the lowest unemployment in Poland: 4.6% in the city (15.200 unemployed people) and 5.4% in the Poznan Urban area. (Sopot - 5.1%, Warsaw - 4.9%).

In the period of 1990-2010 foreign companies invested 6.6 billion dollar in the city.

As an ending for this introduction in order to visualize the city:

POZNAN | Projects & Construction

On the Andersa Square most of the high-rises of Poznan can be found, all combined in the Andersia complex. There is still a gap between the Novotel and other towers, which of course has to be filled. Two towers are planned here, the highest one reaching 116 meters. 40.000 m² of office space will be created.

There is no construction date set yet.





The gap:

Półwiejska 2

Poznan's main shopping street, Półwiejska, doesn't begin so nicely in the center. Before the war, a church stood there, but was destroyed during that time. A gap has been there for years. There are plans to build modern shops on this area.

Construction is about to start this month and will last till March 2015. 6300 m² of shops will be created, as well as 3400 m² of offices. Due to protests of neighbours, the investor had to make the building one floor lower.







Part of the terrain:

Bałtyk Tower

The Bałtyk Tower is a 65m tower designed by the Dutch MVRDV architecture company.
It will be build in the western part of Poznan, Jezyce.
For years, a famous cinema called Kino Baltyk stood on that site, but was demolished a few years ago. The tower will carry its name.

Construction should start next year and last till 2016.











There will be a viewpoint on top of the tower with the following view:



It will be build there were the plot is surrounded, next to Rondo Kaponiera, Poznan's most vital transport hub.

Great start to a thread about an amazing city. I think though some of the stats about Poznan in intro are out of date - there must be newer stats than 2006 or 2008, given how rapidly Poland is changing you may want to update these figures yourself. Good luck, I'll be visiting

Portowo and Nova Porta

Before the war, Poznan had more districts next to the river Warta:



Unfortunately they were destroyed during the war:



Over the last years, there are more and more plans to develop the riverside, which is currently mostly unused. The old district of Chwaliszewo, which was shown on the two pictures above, attracts much investment. There are also two big projects to be build in the future.


source

The first is Portowo, a new district in the south of the city:








This is likely to be build.

Another project, which is more of a proposal, is the Nova Porta which would connect the city with the left bank of the river were there are many buildings of the 'Politechnika', the academy of technique.

Gajowa

In the heart of the western part of Poznan, Jezyce, you could once find a complex of buildings of the MPK, the city's public transport buildings for trams. Most of them were destroyed, except of the historic hall, in order to build a completely new part of the city: Gajowa. There will be 359 apartments as well as a covered market hall as found in Lissabon and other Southern countries.

At the moment the site has been cleared and waits for works to begin, possibly next year and could last 4 years.

Nobel Tower

Nobel Tower, also in the Jezyce area, is an office building that offers innovative companies offices and laboratories.
Construction started last year and will be finished next year.

Due to problems with the building company, construction has stopped for the moment, although the building is nearly finished.
A villa next to it will be renovated as well.

Towers on the plot of PKS Poznan

The bus station of Poznan will be added to the entire complex of the Central Station. Thanks to that, a very big plot will come free in the center. The terrain will be sold for 116 million zloty. In order to attract investors, the bus company has prepared a proposal for what could be done with the terrain.

2 apartment buildings and 4 office buildings are allowed to be build. The height restriction is 116m.
