Permit for Art Norblin

Construction
POLAND Capital Park has obtained the final building permit for the Art Norblin project on ul. Żelazna in Warsaw. The work is to start in Q1 2015.

“The construction of such complicated projects is a real challenge even for experienced investors. In the six years since the purchase of the property, volumes of historical, conservation and construction documentation have been drawn up, a team of over fifty specialists worked on the design, we additionally contracted many consultants, and the work has already cost a dozen or so million złoty. However, since the beginning we have believed that this is a unique project and worth all the effort. We are planning to retain the post-industrial character of the former factory and create a unique area of almost 2 ha in the capital city. We are currently starting the next stage, the detailed design,” reveals Kinga Nowakowska, the general director of Art Norblin, the SPV company set up to the project. An area of 64,000 sqm is to be developed on the plot: both offices (40,000 sqm) and retail (24,000 sqm) will be located on levels -1 to +8. The revitalisation concept will preserve ten listed buildings and 44 machine sets. After the renovation the elements will be integrated into the future project. The new development will be built above the historic buildings and will create an open area focused around the main, cobbled road, where the historic buildings, passages, cafés and boutiques as well as the renovated machines will be situated, providing premises for the Outdoor Museum of the Former Norblin Factory. “We have already prepared the concept of the future museum, which has been approved by the monument conservation office, and we are currently starting the next stage of the design work,” announced Artur Setniewski, the president of the board of the Outdoor Museum of the Former Norblin Factory Foundation. Construction costs will come to PLN 16 mln.
