Eurobuild Awards 2015: Bydgoszcz recognised as the most investor friendly city

Eurobuild Awards
POLAND Bydgoszcz is the most investor friendly city in Poland, according to the 'Eurobuild CEE' readers who took part in the online opinion poll for this year's Eurobuild Awards.
The city beat off eight other competitors, including Gdańsk, Lublin, Łódź, Katowice, Kraków, Poznań, Szczecin, Warszaw and Wrocław. This year Bydgoszcz has secured a number of strategic investment projects. It has supported the growth of some companies from the BPO/SSC sector, such as Atos IT Services, which has created an additional 500 workplaces, SDL (50 workplaces) and Mobica (50 workplaces). It has helped the expansion of SPX Flow Technologies with another manufacturing plant, which is set to create an additional 200 workplaces. New retail investment has come to the city: IKEA has created 275 additional workplaces, the expansion of the Galeria Pomorska shopping centre is to add another 500, while the Zielone Arkady shopping centre is to add another 1,000. The city is also in advanced talks to develop two logistics projects. The first of them, offering 39,000 sqm, will be located on a 8 ha site, while the second one, to be located over 18 ha, will comprise 90,000 sqm. Both are to be completed in the first half of 2016.

A decade of successes

POLAND Over the last ten years, the Eurobuild Awards has been highlighting and honouring the outstanding companies on the market – those that have had the greatest impact, provided the highest standard of services and generated the strongest business results. Added to this, Eurobuild has paid tribute to the best development projects in terms of their competitiveness and value as an investment product. The Eurobuild Awards does this by closely monitoring the market so that it can reward the highest standards achieved in the real estate and construction sectors. The companies and projects that are nominated, as well as those that walk away with the awards, act as inspirations and role models for others in their wake.
