Poland Strong sales results for Echo

Residential
Echo Investment has announced that over 2020, it signed 1,570 apartment sales contracts, representing a rise of 16 pct on the 1,357 apartments sold in 2019.

Over the year sales and work began on nine residential projects with 1,500 apartments being put up for sale.

Achieving sales growth in a year when the whole residential market shrank by about 20 pct, is a really big success for the company, but also proof of homebuyers' trust in the Echo Investment brand. As part of our strategy to pursue profitable growth, we are focusing on strengthening our position in the residential sector and also developing mixed-use urban destination projects, where people can live, work and have fun. Over the last few years, we have strengthened our presence on the residential market to become one of the three largest residential developers in Poland
Waldemar Olbryk, member of the management board at Echo Investment.

Since the beginning of 2020 Echo Investment has completed eleven projects in Warsaw, Łódź, Poznań, Kraków and Wrocław, which resulted in 1,505 apartments being delivered to clients. This represents a rise of over 10 pct on the previous year.
