Reviving the forgotten, hundred-years-old part of town
The area of the planned project is a vestige of the former meat factory which was closed in 1990s. The concept assumes that certain contemporary architectural solutions will be combined with historical urban surroundings. On this site some buildings dating back to the turn of the 19th century have been preserved. Some of them will constitute an attractive central part of the new complex. They will be used to accommodate public, commercial and exhibition space. The remaining part of the plot will mainly be used for a hotel, office and residential space with retail area. The estimated area of the complex comprising office and residential buildings and a public space will reach approximately 80,000 m2. The project will be executed in the spirit of sustainability and will be submitted to verification in the LEED Neighborhood certification system (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Neighborhood Development) as well as WELL Community.
The project site is located in the northern part of Poznań’s centre between Garbary, Grochowe Łąki and Północna streets. A ten-minute walk separates it from the Old Market Square – the central point of the Old Town. The Cytadela Park, St. Wojciech’s Hill and other city landmarks are also nearby.
