Kraków soon to start Fizzing

Residential
POLAND International Campus Group in partnership with Alkyon Partners is to develop a student residence with 1,000 apartments in Kraków.

It will be operated by International Campus under its brand The Fizz and will be in the science and technology campus in the Zabłocie neighbourhood.

The Fizz Kraków will include extensive communal areas as well as underground parking for 88 vehicles as well as 33 spaces above ground. There will also be racks for around 970 bicycles. Alexander Gulya, the head of international development at International Campus Group, explains: “Krakow is the cultural, scientific and economic centre of southern Poland, and the heart of a region of more than 9 mln people. The city is booming and has a young, international and vibrant technology and start-up scene that is attracting many well-educated young people. What may surprise many is that there are more young people studying in Krakow than in Berlin, Vienna or Prague.”


Thorsten Leipert, the managing director of Alkyon Partners, adds: “We have been operating in CEE for more than 25 years now, and in that time we have seen through projects with a value in excess of EUR 2 bln either alone or with partners. Student housing is a quite new idea in Central and Eastern Europe, though there are some very interesting hot spots for investors –such as Kraków. We are therefore delighted to have found a well-known student housing specialist with operations throughout Europe in International Campus.”

The FIZZ Kraków will have seven and eight floors and a central entrance with a reception. Construction should start in mid-2019 once the building permit has been granted.

Today there are around 210,000 students in Kraków
